COURSE: see SBDC 12k Course

The course runs counterclockwise, beginning and ending near the clock tower. The first mile is a gentle downhill that takes you into and through the quiet borough of Adamstown, home to Good’s Potato Chips and Bollman Hat Company. The following 2 miles slowly climbs North and West into the wooded countryside. At mile 3 a long, fairly gradual uphill begins, which flattens out between miles 4.5 & 5. Just after mile 5 the runners will experience a winding down hill descent. Please be careful, there is a sharp right turn at the bottom. The remainder of the course is fairly flat with a short, but very inconvenient hill just before mile 7. The last quarter mile is downhill so save something for the sprint to the finish. There will be two aid stations, one at mile 3 and one just before mile 5. Local police and fire police and Lancaster Road Runners Club members provide traffic control and course guidance.
