About the 2014 Sasquatch 5K Trail Run

(information from 2014′s run, please watch here for details on 2015!)
We’re back at the scenic Snyder Family Farm for our 4th Annual Sasquatch Preservation 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, runners will enjoy mixed terrain and elevation, through the woods, near the Codorus Creek and along mixed crops on some of York County’s best farmland. Keep an eye for native birds, deer, turkeys, snakes and sasquatches, all sharing this beautiful property.

The Sasquatch 5K is chip timed by our friends at York Road Runners. This is NOT a race to miss, as the Sasquatch Preservation Trail Run has been featured in Runner’s World magazine’s list of America’s Top Trail Races!

Parking is limited, so please think of space and the environment, try car pooling!
At the post race awards ceremony you’ll enjoy LOCAL snacks from Flinchbaugh’s Orchard & Farm Market, drinks, cold beer from Brewery Products, live music and some fun surprises to celebrate with your fellow runners.

This is a PRIVATE property, so no trespassing ahead of time for practice runs. Since this is an active farm, please DO NOT BRING ANIMALS. Due to the terrain, we also ask that no strollers are brought on the course.
