Race Start Time: 8:00 am at the White Rose Bar & Grill, York PA
The Region’s Oldest Running Event!
The first York White Rose Run was held in 1977 and it has been run on the streets of York City for 41 years. This family-friendly race has drawn as many as 800+ runners and has been known to attract a field of elite runners from local and regional areas, including Olympic Games participants from eleven different countries. The five-mile course starts on Beaver Street near the York Central Market House, meanders throughout York City, climbs the hill to Farquhar Park and finishes straight and fast down Beaver Street to the White Rose Bar & Grill.
The York Road Runners Club, established in 1976, proudly manages, organizes, and directs the York White Rose Run. This race is put on by runners for runners and is geared to participants of all abilities and experience levels. It has much to offer, from a special course that runs through York City, to a great tech shirt for those who choose to purchase it, to a post-race party complete with great food, beer, and a band. This event is sanctioned by the USATF.
Run to Party, Party to Run!
Race activities commence at White Rose Bar & Grill. Immediately following the race, the White Rose Bar & Grill will host a festival style POST-RACE PARTY! Our race course finishes on Beaver Street, which means finishers will race right into York’s best post-race party. Groove to live music with food and drink specials for race participants and supporters!
The York White Rose Run is proud to support Not One More, York PA Chapter – a nonprofit organization committed to providing awareness, education and support to those affected by drug abuse and addiction.
