Dallastown Wildcat 10k Announcements


Please remember this race, and the remainder of the Winter Series races, will take place on Saturday mornings. The one mile begins at 8:35am and the main event will start at 9:00am.

Thanks to the race director, we will have Amy Good back again this year with her delicious soups at the finish line! McDonald’s of South Queen Street will also provide hot beverages to warm us up.

Saturday morning weather shows showers, but temps should warm a bit over the next few days. We’ll take it!

If you placed an order for Winter Series apparel over the past two weeks, please stop by the registration table to pick up your items.

Spring Valley 4 Miler

Weather is looking great for Sunday’s Spring Valley 4 Miler! This year we debut a new out-and-back course and a new race director at Spring Valley!!

While we’re excited to be growing as a series, we sometimes run into tight/limited parking at our venues. Get in touch with your running buddies and try to carpool! FOR THE SAFETY OF THE RUNNERS, THERE IS NO PARKING ON CREST ROAD. Please also be mindful of those running the 1 mile race at 12:35 – let’s give them room on the roads to do their thing!!

East Berlin Area Community Center (EBACC) 5K

If you ran the EBACC 5K on 7/21/2018, you’ll want to check out the pictures at our York Road Runners Club Flickr site.  Pictures are by Clay Shaw and you should be able to download them for your own use.  The race, the first of the Run 717 Series, was contested on a typically hot day in July.  We hope you’ll enjoy these images.   You can also see albums from lots of other races at this link.  Dover pictures will be up soon.

The York White Rose Run is now a York Road Runners Club Event

We’re hoping you were lucky enough to participate in the 41st Running of the York White Rose Run 5 Miler on September 15, 2018.  As you had heard, the White Rose is now owned and managed by the York Road Runners Club.

We were amazed and gratified by the turnout and by our wonderful volunteers.   325 of the 348 registered arrived at the start line and completed the race and over 90 dedicated volunteers made everything work so well!   The York White Rose Bar and Grill provided our post-race festivities, including sandwiches and drinks.  They also hosted the Friday evening packet pickup and made a special menu and drink for runners.   Extras included York Revolution’s Cannonball Charlie who started the race and Downtown (the large, blue fuzzy mascot) who greeted runners at the finish line.   Our favorite bagpiper, Rodney Yeaple was at his usual spot at the top of Farquhar Park to help the runners up the hill.  The Temple Guard Drum Line entertained the runners during the first mile of the race and again at the finish line.  Shane Speal and the Snakes provided music at the post-race party.

We sure appreciate your participation as a runner or volunteer and found your feedback on our post-race survey to be super helpful.   The feedback was highly positive with many great suggestions.

Next steps:  We are coordinating with the city to identify the date of the 42nd Running in 2019.   As soon as we know the date, we’ll put out “Save the Date” information on this website, on our YRRC Facebook page, and on the emails sent out by YRRC board member Mark Landis.  We are also eager to get more sponsors for next year.  If you are interested in being a sponsor or know someone who may be interested, please contact Karen Mitchell.
