Charity Information

Book Bounce is a research-based non-profit designed to close the literacy gap for children ages 3-5 who do not speak English at home. These children are at higher risk of falling behind academically in school. With our theme-based book units, families read together in their home language, and teachers or volunteers read the same books with the children in English. Research shows this approach accelerates learning – leading to a brighter future for the children and their families! Visit www.BookBounce.org to learn more, or see the latest news on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BookBounce.org/.

Weather Policy

We are an all-weather race company (rain or shine or sleet or snow). We will email registered runners and post on social media if the race is cancelled, but this is quite rare, otherwise assume the race is taking place as scheduled.

Weekly weather reports are posted on the Thursday before race weekends on our Facebook page by Chad Merrill with the Hagerstown Almanack.  Race officials may delay, change or postpone the event due to weather conditions.  All registered runners will be notified via email of any changes.  In most cases, a decision is not made until the night before the race, and a decision could come as late as the morning of the event.
