The first Run with the Champ began in 1978 featuring Heavyweight Boxing Champion Larry Holmes. The Race is open to both adults and children of all ages. Registration begins at 8:30a.m. and the race will begin at 10:00a.m. followed by the walk and fun run. Registration for the event is now open on the LHCF events page.
“We are excited to bring this race back to Easton,” said Larry Holmes Jr., Executive Director of the Larry Holmes Charitable Foundation. “The race will help us spread our mission to the community while keeping the Lehigh Valley Fit.”
Easton native Cpl. Dan Lasko will be honored as well as participating in the Run with the
Champ. Lasko fought in Afghanistan in 2004 and received a purple heart. He is a prime
example of local heroes giving back.
“The Larry Holmes Charitable Foundation is proud to honor Cpl. Dan Lasko for his hard work and dedication,”
