2022 Race Details

Sesame Place Classic 2022 – Race details

This year’s Sesame Place Classic was the 22nd running of this ever-popular event.

Sponsored by the Levittown Bristol Kiwanis Club and the Bucks County Herald, the Classic had all the usual fun, namely a featured 5K, a one-mile fun run/walk and a kids’ sprint races event.

Each year, the race includes a free, one-day admission ticket to Sesame Place for all who register. 2022 passes are good until June 18th 2022. Every runner or walker gets a “finisher’s medals,’’ which proved to be quite popular in previous years. Oh, and did we mention the cool collectable race T-shirt?

Proceeds from the race go to the Dick Dougherty Scholarship Fund, named for the late sports editor of the Bucks County Courier Times. Since the race’s inception in 1999, $450,000 has been raised to assist college-bound scholar-athletes from 18 Bucks County high schools.

The Course

The 2022 course will be identical to our pre-pandemic setup.

With course marshals and pace bikes, the course is wide, flat and very safe. The course starts at the Sesame Park entrance and heads along North Buckstown Road towards Oxford Valley Mall. The course then follows the Oxford Valley Mall ring-road counter-clockwise from approx 1 O’clock to 5 O’clock on the ring-road. Here the course doubles back for a smooth 2.5K return.
