Public library hosts first ‘Run to Destiny’ 5K

The Shippensburg Public Library hosts the first-ever “Run to Destiny” 5K run/walk Saturday, June 22. Proceeds benefit the Shippensburg Public Library Capital Campaign for the library’s upcoming expansion.


“We wanted to start a 5K run/walk during the year we break ground for the expansion,” said Carey Garland, assistant race coordinator for the event. “And hopefully this run/walk will become an annual event.”

According to Susan Sanders, library director, the expansion construction may begin this summer.
The run/walk course winds through the streets of downtown Shippensburg and Shippensburg University, beginning and ending at the library.
Runners can register online or on race day. Registration on race day occurs behind the library at 73 W. King St. Registration begins at noon. The run/walk starts at 1:45 p.m. To register online, visit
Awards are given to top male and female participants by age group and best overall.
