We are encouraging participants to bring their own water. Bottles will be available at the finish line. 

Runners only at these events, no spectators this year - we will have photographers (thank you Clay and Karen) and you may share those photos with your family. 

Runners, race directors, volunteers and timers are all very excited to have LIVE events..........I cannot stress this enough, safety at our events this year comes before setting a PR.  Let’s all work together to kick off another amazing YRRC Winter Series!!!

Things will look different this year, but we are excited to host the series and to do so as safely as possible. Please check out some changes you can expect:

- NO race day registration
-MASKS must be worn unless you are on the race course
- Spectators, we love you, but this year, for the sake of the runners and race volunteers, we are asking you to stay home. 
- Stay by your vehicle until a few minutes prior to race start. 
- Rolling race start times (50 per wave).
- Do not congregate after the race - slowly and safely leave the race venue as quick as possible. 

We would really appreciate everybody’s help and patience with these guidelines. Not only for the safety of those involved, but also as a way to make sure we can continue with the remaining events.

This year’s Winter Series VIRTUAL CHALLENGE is to complete and submit your results for 135 miles by the last day of winter, March 19, 2021.

What course should I run or walk?

You can run/walk any time, any place!

But **imagine** you are doing the 2020-21 WINTER SERIES – virtually!  In your **imaginary course,** you start at Spring Valley County Park in southern York County and run the 4-mile Winter Series LIVE course.  That park is hilly, so you take a bit of a rest. 

From there you run to John C. Rudy County Park, and because you are on foot, your course takes you on safe, back roads, including the Northern Extension of the Heritage Rail Trail, a total of 17 miles.  While there, you run the John Rudy 5-mile Winter Series LIVE course.  Since that course is moderately hilly, but not like Spring Valley, you take only a short rest.

You leave John Rudy and head to Regents Glen Country Club Golf Course.  In fact, you take the Heritage Rail Trail the whole way, eight more miles. While there, you run the Winter Series LIVE Indian Rock 10K.

Leaving Indian Rock, you head to the location of the Jacobus 5 Miler near Lake Williams, another seven miles.  You can go south on the Rail Trail, leaving the trail just before Howard Tunnel and use the extended Jacobus course to the start line.  Add another five miles for the Winter Series LIVE Jacobus 5 Miler.

Now you head to Springettsbury 10K.  Your **imaginary** run takes you on George St, to Market, to Mt Zion, to Williams Rd, adding another 11 miles.  Your total is now 70 miles!

But, you don’t think that’s enough, so you decide to add the Winter Series LIVE races that **didn’t happen** this year.  This gets you only to 89 miles, but – you had to travel to each location.

From Springettsbury you go to Northeastern 5K (an 8-mile trip) plus run the 5K.  From there you head to North Salem Elementary School (11 miles) to do the Dover 10 Miler.  You leave Dover to go to your final destination (17 miles), and do the Dallastown 10K. 

Your total mileage is 134.7 – and you call it a winter.  We’re rounding up to 135 miles!

Your VIRTUAL CHALLENGE, should you accept it, is to run/walk 135 miles between December 1, 2020 through the last day of winter, March 19, 2021.  You can run any amount at a time, and submit your results as you go.  

Will I get some cool swag?

Participants of the VIRTUAL event will get specially-designed swag: a winter pom-pom hat, a neck gaiter, and a medal that doubles as a holiday ornament.  Check it out below!  (Sorry, swag cannot be mailed outside of the United States.)

What about a digital bib and a finisher certificate?

Yep, you'll get that, too!

What about a map of my progress as I gradually submit my results?

Yes, there's a MAP!  Thank you, Jeff Hines.  The map shows what the route would be like if you ran it in the order specified above.  Of course, the map will simply track your progress in number of miles no matter where you run.  Remember you can run this VIRTUAL CHALLENGE anywhere.  Here's a link to the map if you want to look at it as Jeff has designed.  BTW, Jeff says the distance is closer to 135 miles, not 125, so we're changing this in the descriptions.

How do I submit my results?

Here's a link in which runsignup explains how to do this.  Submit my Virtual Results

Can I upload my own photos?

Yes, here's how to do that.  

Photos of our Winter Pom-Pom Hat; our neck gaiter; and our VIRTUAL Event medal, which doubles as a holiday ornament.
