About the Run
We’re back at the gorgeous Snyder Family Farm for the 3rd Annual Sasquatch Preservation 5K Trail Run, an entirely off-road cross-country and trail run. This property is permanently preserved by the Farm & Natural Lands Trust of York County and will take you along mixed terrain and elevation, through the woods, near the Codorus Creek and along mixed crops on some of York County’s best farmland. A bit more nature is out there, keep an eye for native birds, deer, turkeys, snakes and sasquatches, all wondering along this beautiful property.
The Sasquatch Preservation 5K Trail Run has been featured in Runner’s World magazine’s list of America’s Top Trail Races!
Parking is limited and so is clean air, so please try and car pool!
After the race enjoy ALL LOCAL snacks from Flinchbaugh’s Orchard & Farm Market, drinks from York Water Company, cold beer from Brewery Products, with live music and some fun surprises to celebrate with your fellow runners.
This year features an ALL NEW COURSE! You’ll like this one, we promise. Yes, there are some climbs but not too bad… just wait to be surprised! Chip timing is back once again through our friends at York Road Runners.
This is a PRIVATE property, so no trespassing practice runs. Since this is an active farm, please NO ANIMALS. Due to the terrain, we also ask that no strollers are brought on the course.
