Description

THE CONGREGATION I

RUN THEN BEER

A LONG TIME AGO THE GARRETT FAMILY CONSTRUCTED A SNUFF MILL ON THE BANKS OF THE RED CLAY CREEK AND THE VILLAGE OF YORKLYN WAS BORN.  SNUFF IS FINELY GROUND TOBACCO POWDER THAT IS SNIFFED UP THE NOSE-  YES THAT IS DISGUSTING TO CONSIDER. SOON THIS VILLAGE BECAME A POWERHOUSE OF INDUSTRY, ADDING A TAPE AND FIBER MILL. 

 

THE MILL INDUSTRY CAME AND LEFT.  THEN THE MEAGER RED CLAY CREEK EXPLODED WITH A TROPICAL STORM IN 2003 WASHING AWAY THE LAST OF THE INDUSTRY STRONGHOLD ALONG WITH ALL THE DREAMS OF A BETTER TOMORROW. 

 

YORKLYN WAS LEFT IN THE DECAY OF YESTERDAY FOR OVER A DECADE.  THE GROUNDS LEFT ROTTING ALONG THE BANKS OF A HEAVY METAL STREAM.  

 

THE CONGREGATION WILL WEAVE TOGETHER THE MEMORIES OF THE PAST WITH THE FUTURE OF YORKLYN AS WE COME CELEBRATE AT THE SITE OF THAT OLD SNUFF MILL WHICH IS NOW HOME TO DEW POINT BREWING COMPANY. LIVE MUSIC AND A FREE BEER AT THE FINISH LINE OF A 5K RUN THAT WILL HAVE RUNNERS EXPLORE THE PROGRESS AND CONSERVATION THROUGH AUBURN HEIGHTS PRESERVE. 

 

FORMIDABLE THIS COURSE WILL BE FOR WARRIOR RUNNERS.  YOU WILL HAVE TO CONQUER  MT. YORKLYN AND PROCEED THROUGH THE VALLEY OF GHOSTS AND DEFEAT THE BRUTAL CIRCLE BEFORE CROSSING VICTORIES BRIDGE TO RETURN TO HOME DEW POINT.

 

ONLY THE BRAVEST OF THE FRIVOLOUS WILL DARE THE CONGREGATION.  WILL YOU BE AMONG THEM? 

MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU.
