All registration is online only. Online registration will open on October 12, 2020 at 8:00 AM.

York County, Pennsylvania, where our LIVE race is located, is “green” per the Governor’s Process to Reopen, and this allows us to host a running event at this time. With COVID-19, it’s impossible to correctly predict the future. If our LIVE race should need to be canceled, and we certainly hope that won’t happen, you may choose from the following:  transfer to the VIRTUAL event, or defer your registration to 2021.

This year’s race includes both a LIVE and a VIRTUAL race. Runners around the world have embraced VIRTUAL racing in 2020, and we wanted to add this option to our 2020 edition! You can register for the LIVE, or the VIRTUAL, or register for each of the events (**you must register separately for each event if you wish to do both**).

Packet Pickup Times. Location TBD  (Changes will be announced.)
Friday, November 20, 2020 from 3 pm to 7pm
Saturday, November 21, 2020 from 10 am to 1pm

** Avoid long lines on race-day by using Friday and Saturday packet pick up. **

This year we are offering a roll-up fleece blanket with the YRRC Winter Series logo to all those who register.  One blanket per person (you will NOT receive 2 blankets if you register for both the 1 mile and the main event)
