YRDC Running Festival

New Freedom, PA

The York Regional Dream Center Running Festival, held on September 23, 2017, is in its third year, with our first ever trail half marathon. Both the half marathon and 5K will be run along the scenic Heritage Rail Trail near the beautiful Bee Tree Run creek in a flat, though sloped tree shaded run. The one mile fun run will be held entirely on the grounds of Summit Grove camp along a newly built forest trail and on campground roads.

Please join us for our first ever half marathon, kicking off at 8:00 AM followed shortly by our 5K, mile fun run and then our kids fun run (always a favorite!). These runs will be fun with both casual runners who may be new to the sport, along with seasoned runners looking for a PR.

Watch the Video!

Activities for children and families will abound such as face painting, balloons, the Chic-Fil-A cow and so on, along with various  booths including information about the York Regional Dream Center. Music will be provided along with food provided by Summit Grove Campground and sponsors.
