Swing For the Fences 5K

UpdatedFriday May 6, 2022 byDave Shuster.

Hello Nether Swarthmore Baseball and Softball Families,


We are excited to announce our inaugural “Swing for the Fences 5K” Run/Walk, scheduled for 7:00PM on Friday, June 3rd in Swarthmore.  This event will serve as our primary fundraiser for improving safety features at local athletic fields – specifically for building better and safer dugouts for the boys and girls of our community.  Every single dollar makes a difference!


2SP Brewing Company has generously stepped up to serve as our primary sponsor for this fun event, and they’ll be there for the post-race celebration, along with some of your favorite local businesses – Ship Bottom Brewery, Renato Pizza, and Aria Mediterranean Cuisine.  It should be a fun night for everyone in the community!


Come join us:


  • Register by May 27, 11:59 p.m. = $40 for adults (21 and over); $30 for 20 and under
  • Register May 28-June 3 = $50 for adults (21 and over); $40 for 20 and under
  • Early registrants (by May 20th) will receive a super-cool NSBS race t-shirt
  • Race starts and ends on Park Avenue in Swarthmore, PA
  • Prizes from 2SP (and other local businesses) for top-3 finishers in several age groups
