These are the top 10 reasons for running (or volunteering for) the White Rose Run 5 Miler.
- York Road Runners Club owns and organizes it. It’s your club. And it’s organized by runners for runners!!
- Proceeds from the race support the York Chapter of Not One More, Inc., a nonprofit organization committed to providing awareness, education and support to those affected by drug abuse and addiction. If you would like, you can add a donation when you register.
- This is a race with a history. This will be the 42nd
- It runs through the streets of York City, including downtown, Farquhar Park, the Avenues, and Fireside.
- There is a really fun post-race party with free beer and a sandwich and live music.
- Parking will be readily available and easy on race morning.
- York Revolution is providing us with our race start by Cannonball Charlie and lots of fun with mascot Downtown.
- Traffic control provided by Area Wide Protective.
- Some 90 volunteers to add to your enjoyment, provide water, and keep you running in the right direction.
- The Temple Guard Drumline is back!! You loved this last year!
- Great tech shirts with a nice design again this year for those who’d like to order it.
- Age group awards are very cool running caps with a nice design.
- You can easily sign up: https://runsignup.com/YorkWhiteRoseRun
- If you’re late signing up, you can sign up on Friday night or Saturday morning. But we recommend that you avoid the rush, reserve your shirt, and make things easier on yourself, by signing up online.
- The Stroller Division is back! Just show up with a stroller and a child, and we’ll record the male and female winners.
- Enter the Team Challenge. When you register, create a team, or pick an already registered team from the drop-down menu. Be the biggest team – appropriate recognition on race day. Or be the winning team.
- You can sign up to volunteer at the same location!
OK, lots more than 10 reasons. We hope you’ll join us!!
