2014 WellSpan Sports Medicine Running Series

All races are chip timed by the York Road RunnersExercising, eating right and taking good care of yourself are all part of living a healthy life. And at WellSpan, we like to encourage that. In fact, we offer lots of community events, health screenings and physical activity programs – all designed to make staying healthy a routine matter.

The WellSpan Sports Medicine Running Series is a great opportunity for new and experienced runners to exercise while supporting several local non-profit organizations. The Series includes the following races: Double Creek Half Marathon and 5K, Habitat for Humanity 5K, East Berlin 5K, Rail Trail 10 Miler, Quarterback Club 5K, David Tome Memorial 5K and the White Rose 5 Miler.

 Every race has its own designated beneficiary. All participants in both the adult and youth category who complete seven of the eight races will receive a participation award. There will also be awards for the top male and female finishers in 13 age groups for the feature races if the qualifications for prizes are met.

So make staying healthy part of your routine. Start training now for the WellSpan Sports Medicine Running Series. And join WellSpan in making our communities happier and healthier.

Racer Etiquette

  1. Number goes on front (never on your back!).
  2. Guys who need to race without shirt, need a number on front, not on your hip.
  3. Do not fiddle with your tearaway until you cross the finish line.
  4. Runners who have finished, do not go back and run towards the finish line again. Do not get to within 50 yards of the finish line. You can encourage your friends, without making the timers job harder.
  5. Stay in single file line through the chute, no passing, no going out.
