Join the Friends of Cowans Gap for the sixth annual Cowans Gap 5K Run/Walk.  Entirely on Lakeside trail, the course will start and finish near the concession stand and loop twice around the lake.  Trail is all crushed stone, not a forest trail. The 5k will be held at 6235 Aughwick Road Fort Loudon, PA 17224 at 2PM on April 10, 2022. Again this year, youth 13 and under can enter with no entry fee.
