ABOUT THE SASQUATCH 5 & 10 K
The Sasquatch 5K and Thoroughbred 10K are being combined for the Sasquatch Preservation Trail Run 5 & 10 K, both runs will occur at the same time at the amazing FNLT preserved South Branch Farms in Seven Valleys (new location for the 5K – previous location of our 10K). Your pick based on your abilities! The Sasquatch Preservation Trail Run is chip timed and the 5 & 10 K will have a slightly staggered start. What does that mean? Everyone finishes at the same finish line, around the same time, making for a grand finale.
The Sasquatch was featured in Runner’s World magazine’s list of America’s Top Trail Races, all off-road, cross-country and trail runs covering mixed terrain and elevation on FNLT preserved land. Enjoy woods, crops, meadows and streams – native songbirds, deer, turkeys, owls, foxes, coyotes, snakes and sasquatches, all populate this beautiful landscape. The 10K is more challenging, with steeper inclines including OVER the historic Howard Tunnel / Rail Trail. Both runs cross the Codorus Creek in the last stretch (a nice cool down)! As our host and course designer Rob Kinsley states, “If you finish and you’re not wet and dirty, you’re disqualified!”
Post-race features early 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. Bonus – smoothie samples plus discount coupons from Smoothie King!
This is a PRIVATE property, so please – no trespassing pre or post-race day. Since this is an active farm, please NO ANIMALS. Due to the terrain, NO STROLLERS on the course. Please car pool if possible (do this all the time!).
