The Office 5k Run/Walk


Saturday, April 30, 2022 •  SCRANTON


Participate in The Office 5K where the course passes sites featured on NBC's tv show, The Office. "5K means five kilometers, not 5000 miles." —Pam Beesly


Run, walk, or take a taxi to the finish line... but not really! Taxi rides are guaranteed disqualifiers from the race.

Starting in the shadow of the Electric City sign in Scranton, PA's downtown, participants will pass the University of Scranton, Penn Paper, the Dwight mural, Cooper's, and more. Participants are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Office character for fun and prizes. Walkers are welcome! 

Make sure not to carb load on a bowl of fettuccine alfredo IMMEDIATELY before this 5k as Michael Scott did in the "Michael Scott's Dunder Mifflin Scranton Meredith Palmer Memorial Celebrity Rabies Awareness Pro-Am Fun Run Race for the Cure."
