York White Rose Run, the 42nd Running, is September 28, 2019!!!

The York White Rose Run is back for its 42nd running in the streets of York.  Almost everything is the same as last year, except:

  • The race will start this year at 8:00 am, 1/2 earlier than last year.
  • We are pleased to announce our partnership with Not One More, Inc as our race beneficiary.

What remains the same is our beautiful course that runs through our fine city; start and finish, plus post-race party at the White Rose Bar and Grill; our team of cyclists to lead and keep you safe; the York Revolution’s Cannonball Charlie and mascot Downtown; live music with free food for runners and volunteers at the post-race party; prize money for the top runners; cap awards for age groups awards; really nice tech shirts; The Temple Guard Drumline; our team challenge and the stroller division;  our bagpiper at Farquhar Park; and so much more!

Register to run or volunteer at:  runsignup.com/yorkwhiteroserun.

You can also donate to Not One More, Inc at this same link.

All of the race details are on this website under the White Rose Run tab.


Winter Series Items

All remaining trophies, gloves (participation awards), and apparel orders have been dropped off at Flying Feet. They will be available for you to pick up from now until March 19. Thanks and enjoy your warmer running!

PS – you are eligible for gloves if you ran and/or volunteered in 5+ races throughout the 2018/2019 Winter Series.

Tomorrow’s Race

All preparations for tomorrow are underway. All those involved are planning on a great series ending tomorrow.

In the unlikely event of cancellation, the announcement will be posted on FB, the race registration page of Run Sign Up and the YRRC website by 7:00am.

Northeastern 5k

Northeastern 5k takes place Saturday at 9:00 (1 mile at 8:35). It’s hard to believe we have reached the final race of the series.

Awards have arrived! And we have a gift for each of you who have run and/or volunteered in at least 5 events for the 2018/2019 series. We appreciate you coming out race after race.

Be sure to stick around after the race. OSS Health will be there to help congratulate the top runners for both the One Mile as well as the Main Event. Rita’s of East York has a treat for everybody. And it’s a chance to warm up and relax with friends after all of your hard work.

The awards presentation will start after the last runner crosses the finish. We hope to see you there!


Who is ready for the Springettsbury 10k this weekend? It seems the weather always throws us a surprise for this race. We’ve seen rain, ice, and spring-like temps over the years. Looks like plenty of sun with a chill on Saturday! PLEASE REMEMBER TO WEAR YOUR ASSIGNED BIB!

ADDRESS UPDATE – if you are using GPS, 1409 Williams Road York, PA 17402 will get you there.

Apparel orders will be inside at the registration table just waiting to go home with those who ordered. As always, I’ll be there at 7:30 to get you registered or get you set up with a replacement bib if needed.

End of Year Updates

We hope you’ll follow us on our new website.  We’re working hard to make it useful for our YRRC members, but we have a lot to learn and a lot to update.

Yesterday (12/29/2018) was our Winter Series John Rudy Park 5 Miler and 1 Mile event.  We had more than 300 in the main event and more than 100 in the 1 Mile event!!  The results can be found by clicking or tapping on this website menu at YRRC Winter Series/WS Results/Winter Series 2018-19 Results.  We will keep updating as the series progresses.

Planning for the 2019 White Rose Run 5 Miler continues.  You may wonder why we haven’t posted a date yet.  Our board and White Rose committee members believe that it’s best NOT to have the event in downtown York City the same date as York’s Bike Night.  The Bike Night date was announced only two weeks ago, just before the holidays, and they have selected 9/21/2019.  Now we are working to confirm our White Rose date.  It looks like it will be either 9/28/2019 or 10/5/2019 and we will announce as soon as possible.  The White Rose Run information on this website and on runsignup is NOT updated, and will be soon.

Anyone interested in volunteering?  We’d like to fill several positions:

Events Coordinator:  This person will primarily continue our tradition of the Beginner Runners program.  Hal Darr has led this program for many years, actually decades, and feels it’s time to step down.  We hope this important tradition will continue, but everything the club does, including this, requires club member leadership.

Sponsor Coordinator:  This person will, with the assistance of the YRRC Board and the White Rose committee, identify and coordinate with potential sponsors.  Sponsorship is used to defray the costs in putting on the White Rose Run and other programs, including providing funds to donate to the charity that the White Rose supports.

Web Administrator:  Our current web administrator, Ned Einsig, will be moving on at the end of 2019, so we’re looking for someone to learn during 2019 and take over the job in 2020.  We’re using WordPress and runsignup.  Interested?

And we can always use people as volunteers at our events, or to work on  YRRC committees such as the White Rose committee or the Winter Series committee.

If you are interested or have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: presidentyrrc@gmail.com.

And if you are not a YRRC member, we hope you’ll sign up at: runsignup.com/Club/PA/York/YorkRoadRunnersClub
