A Great Cause

We warmly welcome you to join us for our Ninth Annual 5K Run/Walk for Global Peace this fall, Sunday October 8, 2023.  This year, the race is offered in partnership with Mid-Hudson Road Runners Club (MHRRC), and will be held at Bowdoin Park (Wappingers Falls, NY).  There are two ways to participate: directly by doing a run/walk with us at the Park, or indirectly by sponsoring one or more Palpung Thubten Choling Lamas in their effort to support this cause for World Peace. Please join us for the race and refreshments immediately after.

Benefiting Self and Others

The Palpung Thubten Choling annual 5K run/walk has been a popular PTC event and fundraiser since 2015. It benefits the monastery by helping with routine maintenance expenses and supporting our monks, nuns, and lay community in their dharma activity to benefit all beings. Individual participants benefit by accumulating merit; and all beings benefit through the dedication of our participation toward peace and harmony throughout the world. Those who choose to run/walk locally get the additional benefit of outdoor exercise in this beautiful fall season. You can invite family and friends (and pets) to join you, increasing the benefit even more!

If you don’t regularly run/walk a 5K – a distance of 5 kilometers, or 3.1 miles – please be sure to participate within your physical limits, and, as needed, under the direction of your physician. Please note that it’s not necessary to clock your kilometers all at once. You can run/walk and report your results in stages if you prefer. Whether you cover the distance in one session or a kilometer at a time, the benefit is the same.

If you will not be able to join us at the park, feel free to run the race at home and enter your times below. Whichever way you can participate adds to the energy and the benefit of the event!
