About This Event

The 3rd Annual Mt. A Trail Challenge 5K/1 Mile will take place September 21, 2019!

This is an event for all health levels to enjoy the outdoors and meet your own fitness goals. Our Big A Universal Access trail can accommodate all capabilities, while adjoining trails offer even greater challenges. Join us and establish your own personal record! This race is timed by the York Track & Field Program, traditional stop-watch style. Race amenities include water and snacks. Consider bringing your own picnic lunch to enjoy at the summit after the awards. Prizes are given to the top male and female 5k finishers, plus all runners are eligible for our raffle prizes!

Pre-registration deadline is Wednesday, September 18th. Those registered by August 9th will receive a race shirt. You may register online or in person at the Parks and Recreation Office: 200 US Rte. 1 at Goodrich Park.

Parking is limited: the first 50 to register will receive premium summit parking passes.

Volunteers are needed to help make this event a success!

No dogs please, for their safety and ours.

Course Descriptions (map available):
5K: Starts in open field at summit, follows Big A trail around the top for a gentle warm up. Follow down the road to Hairpin Turn trail to the first water stop. Continues to Ring trail and follows it all the way around counter-clockwise, to second water stop before a challenging climb back to the top. Course will overlap slightly before the connection to Witch hazel trail. This year the course follows a portion of the Big A once again and finishes close to the same start area.
1-Mile: Starts at the Big A Welcome sign and follows the new universal access trail around the outer perimeter and then inner loop to finish at the very top. Look for 1/10th mile markers to help guide your way.
