The 2018 Coal Cracker 10K and Fun Run will be held June 9, 2018.

The Fun Run, for kids 12 and younger, will begin at 9:00am.

The 10K, which has a reputation as one of the most grueling runs in the state, will start at 10 am,  beginning in the first block of North Main Street.

Downtown Shenandoah stores, banks, eateries and service outlets will be open as will the Greater Shenandoah Historical Society's history center at 210 S. Main St. and the Schuylkill Historical Fire Society's museum at 105 S. Jardin St.

The 10K is sponsored by the Shenandoah Flites Running Club, headed by Tom Talerico and Dan Lewis. After the run, the Flites will hold a “Pierogie Party” for participants.
