Scott Ewing was an avid runner, one of the founders of the Y's Annual 5K run, Pocono Area Running Club and ran the New York Marathon in 2013. Scott took new runners under his wing and refused to let anyone run alone. He kept tabs on all the runners from the Y on Tuesday and Thursdays evenings and no one was allowed to leave till they finished their run by touching the Y building. With his energetic personality and his love for running he began timing local races and created the Orange Shirt Timing Team. The timing team will be taking over his duties for this year’s run in his honor. Scott mapped out and measured the course for the first ever Y 5K and we continue to use the same course. The run starts and finishes at the YMCA in Stroudsburg. The 3.1-mile course is gently rolling and traverses city streets. Join us in honoring our friend, Scott Ewing.
So start training, runners and walkers are welcome! As your training please scan the ground for loose change. One of Scotts other passions was rescuing greyhounds. Whenever he found loose coins he would declare “the dogs will eat good tonight!” All change donations will be donated to Pocono Greyhound Adoption.
