Thursday, November 28th – Thanksgiving Day

Berwick’s 110th Annual Run for the Diamonds draws hundreds of participants.

Berwick’s 110th Annual “Run for the Diamonds” Race – Before the turkey dinner finds its way to the table, head over to Berwick to be a part of an incredible Thanksgiving Day Tradition – the 110th Annual Run for the Diamonds. Spectators will come out early to line the course and runners from around the world will gather at the start line for a 10:30 start.  The 9-mile course, unchanged from the inaugural route, takes runners throughout the Berwick borough. It starts and ends at Market Street. The race used to be called the “Berwick Marathon” until the 1970’s and 1980’s. However, since the race is too short to qualify as an official marathon, and winners receive diamonds as part of their prize, the name was changed to “Run for the Diamonds” and has stuck ever since. For more information, visit the Event Facebook Page or the Run for the Diamonds website.

Artspace Gallery’s Holiday Show – Visit Artspace Gallery in downtown Bloomsburg for a special holiday artist exhibit. The show will open November 21st and run through January 5th.
