Description

The HARVEST RUNNING FESTIVAL

 A Celebration of Human Potential!

THIS YEAR'S HARVEST HAS BEEN CANCELED

Southern Chester County will be on full display for the 2nd Annual Harvest Running Festival.  A cross-country Friday night 5K in the dark followed the next morning by an exhilarating half marathon. Run one event or do them both to complete The Bounty Runner 26K Challenge.  All of this will be taking place in the most beautiful corner pocket of Southeastern Pennsylvania this October 12th & 13th.

Fox Chase Farm will be host for this spectacular autumn event. Formerly part of the range of the Lenape tribe, this 148 acre working farm will be our Event HQ, with parking, events start and finish, and a field party you won't want to miss! 

The Peck 5K will round Fox Chase Farm on the Geoghegan Trail Friday night.  This unique cross country event will feature a mass start at 6:30PM, just beyond the barn, from where runners will make their way onto the course.  Don't forget your headlamps!  There will be a bonfire celebration at the finish complete with s'mores and spirits!  

The Bushel 21K will start at 7:30AM Saturday October 13th from Fox Chase Farm.  You'll travel along small country roads, past large farms and horse pastures, dipping into the state of Maryland, and passing hundreds of acres of  preserved lands, all in the splendor of autumn. Listen for the Ticking Tomb as you run near London Tract Meeting House and the White Clay Creek Preserve.  There'll be more than enough aid along this course to make these 13.1 miles fly by! Here's the course map. USATF #PA17050NP

*There is a 3:30 minute (16-minute mile) cutoff time for this race. If you are not at the 9.5 mile marker by 10:00AM you will be asked to leave the course in the safety vehicle provided. After this time aid stations will be closed, police will not be monitoring traffic, roads will be re-opened, making safe passage to the finish very difficult. If you do not feel that you can maintain a 16-minute mile or less over the 13.1 mile course, for your safety, please consider a different event.

The Bounty Runner 26K is the designation you deserve for completing both The Peck Friday night and The Bushel on Saturday  You must register for The Bounty 26K in order to receive this special medal and swag!  

All runners will receive finisher medals and specially selected premiums for each event that they're registered for (if registered by September 24, 2018). The Bounty Runners receive special Bounty Runner medal/swag.
