Once featured in Runner’s World magazine as one of America’s Top Trail Races, The Sasquatch is an 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 / Heritage Rail Trail. Both runs cross the Codorus Creek near the finish.

BRISK PACE ONLY - if you'd need a slower pace - all good - please use the 5K.  Also, seek out FNLT's Preservation Steps events that feature several options to get out on preserved lands.  The Sasquatch is chip timed, with both the 10K & 5K starting at 9:00 AM sharp.

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. Come race day please carpool.
