Race Description

Directed by the Lancaster Road Runners Club, and hosted by Stoudt’s Microbrewery, Restaurant & Pub, the 7.45-mile racecourse provides a challenging (code word for “hills”), varied (code word for “up & down”), and picturesque (it really is) running experience.

The Course runs counterclockwise, beginning and ending near the clock tower by the Wonderful Good Market. The first mile is a gentle downhill that takes you into the quiet borough of Adamstown. The following 2 miles slowly climb North and West into the wooded countryside. At mile 3 a long, fairly gradual uphill begins, which flattens out between miles 4.5 & 5. Just after mile 5 there is a winding down hill plunge. Please be careful, there is a sharp right turn at the bottom. The remainder of the course is fairly flat with a short, but very inconvenient hill just before mile 7. The last quarter mile is downhill so save something for the sprint to the finish. There will be two aid stations, one at mile 3 and one just before mile 5. East Cocalico Twp. Police, Adamstown Fire Police, and Lancaster Road Runners Club members provide traffic control and course guidance.
