Papa’s Peach Classic will be fun for the whole family June 17, 2017 beginning at Dickey’s Peach Packing House and 5-K route to turn around and back to some mighty fine Peach Ice Cream. Running may not be what you had intended, there is also a 1-Mile Fun Run for everyone else. This first race will be run honoring Robert Tharpe. His family will run and dedicate the race to their father in his memory.
Day before Father’s Day, dad can sit on the porch enjoy his ice cream or other sweet treats while he watches the family run or run along with them and make all of them stay behind him! Honor your dad with family event. Dickey Farms is treating all runners with a small cup or cone of delicious peach ice cream.
Papa’s Peach Classic will honor a special “Dad” each year. This year’s Father to be honored will be announced closer to the date. But please remember this is a salute to all Father’s who add to so many young lives and families.
