New 8-Mile Race for 2024!
The additional 3 miles will give runners the opportunity to explore some flat and fast trails along the Susquehanna River. Runners that choose the 8-mile option will start the race with the 3 new miles before returning to finish the original 5-mile course. Start time will be 8:30am for the 8-mile race.

Run Info:
The 5-mile course will take place mostly in shaded woods on single track hiking/biking trails. It will begin near the preserve barn and progress up a grassy path into the trail system. The trails are mostly smooth with a few minor stonewall crossings as well as some natural drainage dips. The terrain will be relatively hilly by climbing up some 280 feet twice in the race before being rewarded with fast, flowy downhill sections. This is an excellent trail/cross country hybrid for someone interested in trail running for the first time! This race is self supported so there will be no aid stations on course.

Who does this race benefit?
The race proceeds will benefit the Friends of Vosburg Neck State Park and their ongoing efforts to maintain and enhance the property features as well as a portion of the proceeds going to The Seven Loaves Soup Kitchen!
