About The Event

ABOUT THE SASQUATCH 5 & 10 K

We’re back! The 10th Sasquatch Preservation Trail Run 5K & 10K takes runners across the FNLT preserved South Branch Farms. The Sasquatch is chip timed by Pretzel City Sports, with both the 10K & 5K starting at 9:00 AM sharp.

One of Runner’s World magazine’s America’s Top Trail Races, The Sasquatch is all off-road, cross-country and trail runs across varied terrain and elevation on FNLT preserved farmland, woods, meadows and streams. Peep at native birds, deer, turkeys, owls, foxes, coyotes, snakes and…. sasquatches! The 10K has some steep climbs including OVER the historic Howard Tunnel / Rail Trail. Both runs cross the Codorus Creek near the finish. As our host and course designer Rob Kinsley states, “If you’re not wet and dirty, you’re disqualified!”

After the race enjoy a light lunch from White Rose Bar & Grill, fruits from Flinchbaugh’s Orchard & Farm Market, beer sampling from Brewery Products (21+ with ID), music and celebration with your fellow runners. For the young and young at heart (NEW this year) Kinetic Kreations Human Powered Frozen Beverage Machine!

BRISK PACE ONLY - this is not a walk or hike event. FNLT is exploring some hiking events in the future but due to time restraints this event is meant to be quick paced.

This is a PRIVATE property, so please - no trespassing before or after the race. Since this is an active farm, please NO ANIMALS. Due to the terrain, NO STROLLERS on the course. Please carpool if possible (do this all the time!).

The Sasquatch Preservation Trail Run 5K & 10K benefits Farm & Natural Lands Trust of York County, dedicated to preservation of prime agricultural and sensitive environmental landscapes. FNLT has 150+ properties with over 13,000 acres permanently preserved.
