The odd part about this story, is that it appears as though the Parkway is FAR from being completed! The section between Horsham and County Line Roads is sitting stagnant ... waiting for work to be completed.

I agree, it is far from completion. And the fee to run, absurd.
Maura Janoski September 06, 2012 at 02:06 AM
So if you don't register by the 5th you can't run ?

According to the registration site, online registration ends at midnight, nominal service applies. There is no need to register for Family Walk which will start at 8:15 AM.

The race fee was for a great benefit.
