Race is an age-group graded race with a staggered start. Depending on your age, that is when you start the race. See the Age-Group Graded section below for handicap chart.
Runners are asked to adhere to the race starter for line up instructions.
Bring your own water if needed while running.
Individual water bottles will be available at the finish.
Awards are NOT given by “net” time. They are based off the staggered starting times. The goal of staggered start is that most people should finish around the same time. It also gives older runners a head "start".
Top 15 finishers receive a medal.
If the race is cancelled due to any directives by the PA Governor, the hosted facility, or the WVS, 2023 pre-entries will be deferred to next year. No refunds will be given.
This race is open to anyone. You do not need to be a WVS member to run. You can however become a member or renew your membership during the checkout process. Online memberships are $12 per year. Membership cards are sent within a week of receipt or given race day if received 14 days prior to event or not yet expired.
