Join Us for the Plumsteadville Blaze of Glory 5K!

For the 17th consecutive year, we’re thrilled to host our community 5K road race—an event that has become a cherished tradition in our area. As the inaugural race in the Bucks 5K Series, the Blaze of Glory 5K aims to support the dedicated volunteers of the Plumsteadville Volunteer Fire Company.

  • Showcasing Plumsteadville: Let’s shine a spotlight on our wonderful Plumsteadville community.

Supporting Our Local Heroes: All proceeds from the race directly benefit the Plumsteadville Volunteer Fire Company. These brave volunteers have faithfully served our community for an impressive 93 years. Covering parts of both Plumstead and Bedminster Townships, they respond to approximately 325 emergency calls annually—ranging from house fires to auto accidents, rescues, brush fires, and more.

Where Your Contributions Go:
