Double Creek Half Marathon & 5K

Saturday, September 18, 2021 • York, PA • Course Map

Note: The 2021 event has been cancelled.

A combination road running and cycling race, the Double Creek Half Marathon, 5K and Tour fields more than 500 runners in the half marathon and 5K race combined each year for this annual summer event, which unfolds along the country roads around this town of just over 1,800 residents in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Set among the rolling hills of York and Adams counties, the race takes participants through scenic farmland and across rustic rural bridges, past quaint country churches and babbling creeks.

The course for this out-and-back race starts and finishes at Dover’s North Salem Elementary School, and is run entirely along paved country roads. Gentle, rolling hills are frequently found throughout the race course for both the running and the cycling events — and participants can take part in both events, starting with the half-marathon at 7:00 AM.

The event also includes a 5K, which starts at 8:00 AM. An awards ceremony and congratulatory lunch for all Double Creek event participants — runners and bikers — follows the finish.
