Mt. A Trail Challenge 5K/1 Mile

4th Annual & First Virtual Mt.A Trail Challenge 5K/1 Mile

In order to put the health of our community first and in an abundance of caution, York Parks & Recreation and the Mount Agamenticus Conservation Team have made the decision to have a Virtual Race in 2020. We are working to make the best of a difficult situation while still offering our loyal participants and supporters an opportunity to stay healthy and engaged. This is the 4th Annual Mt.A Trail Challenge and we hope you still join us, no matter where you are. If you’re not familiar, a virtual run means you run the 5K or 1 Mile and self-report your time. We’ll ship you the race t-shirt (must register by September 1st).

You’ll have an entire month to run our 5K and 1 Mile because we’re encouraging participants to complete the MT.A course if you’re local or visiting us this September. There is one registration fee ($20 + admin fees) to participate in the 5K and/or 1 Mile. You decide the distance and we’ll send you the swag!

Thank you again for your support and we hope you remain healthy and safe!

Turkey Trot 5K

In Partnership with York Rotary Club

Join York Parks & Recreation and the York Rotary Club for the Annual Turkey Trot 5K. Participate virtually between Saturday, Nov. 21st and Saturday, Nov 28th or in-person on Saturday, Nov. 28th. We’re feeling optimistic and are planning both a virtual and in-person option for this year’s race. IF circumstances do not allow us to safely have an in-person race, participants will be automatically transferred to our virtual option. A small refund will be issued, so those that registered as an in-person participants will pay the same price as virtual participants (about a $2 refund per person).

— Participating virtually means you’ll still receive a free shirt (most register by 11/4) and have a week to complete your 5K. You’re welcome to use the race’s official course or complete your walk/run wherever you’d like.

— Participating in-person will look different this year, with staggered starts, masks required before and after completing the race and modified water stations & post-race snacks.

Participants will be given updates as they arise, but always feel free to reach out. Like you, we’re unable to use a crystal ball to determine what November will look like, but please know we’ll continue to base all decisions with safety as the main priority. Please reach out to the race director Liz Cooper with any questions lcooper@yorkmaine.org.
