The York Regional Dream Center Running Festival, held on September 23, 2017, is in its third year, with our first ever trail half marathon. Both the half marathon and 5K will be run along the scenic Heritage Rail Trail near the beautiful Bee Tree Run creek in a flat, though sloped tree shaded run. The one mile fun run will be held entirely on the grounds of Summit Grove camp along a newly built forest trail and on campground roads.
Please join us for our first ever half marathon
, kicking off at 8:30 AM followed shortly by our mile fun run, kids fun run (always a favorite!) and then our popular 5K. These runs will be fun with both casual runners who may be new to the sport, along with seasoned runners looking for a PR.
Watch the Video!
Activities for children and families will abound such as face painting, balloons, the Chic-Fil-A
cow and so on, along with various booths including information about the York Regional Dream Center. Music will be provided along with food provided by Summit Grove Campground
Not ready yet?? We've got you covered! We will be holding three month "Couch to 5K" and half marathon prep classes starting in July at Grace Fellowship Church in Shrewsbury. This class will be a supportive program for folks who've never run in a race, or just want to get in shape and are looking for friends who will join them in the fitness journey and information to help them get started the right way (choosing the correct shoes, eating habits, etc).
