JACOBUS ANNOUNCEMENT

THE JACOBUS RACE WILL RETURN TO A 5 MILER THIS YEAR!

Thank you to our Jacobus race director for working closely with the powers that be to get approval for the runners to cross the bridge on Water Street this year! The 1 mile course will remain the same as it has for the past few years. The 5 mile course will use the one mile course at the beginning before we send you down Water Street. Don’t worry, we were able to keep the hill at the finish!

Members of Christ United Methodist Church will again serve us hot breakfast and beverages afterwards. We appreciate their time and effort to make this happen each year. Please consider making a contribution towards their cause.

Three races remain in the series – online registration is available through February 6th at https://runsignup.com/Race/PA/York/YRRCWinterSeries
