Double Creek

Saturday, June 17, 2017

Join us for Double Creek 2017, which will be held at North Salem Elementary School. This event benefits the Prescription for Caring Fund, which provides medications for patients in need in our communities.

Celebrating a long history as York’s Running, Cycling and Walking Event, Double Creek welcomes participants of all ages. Register for our half marathon, 5K, Fun Run, or cycle routes. We offer a 10 mile, 30 mile, 48 mile, 63 mile and 100 mile route.

New this year – we will join with the “Cycle the Solstice” event and offer a 100 mile cycle route. This new event will include the Double Creek and Solstice routes. This will be held on June 17 during the Double Creek event, and on June 24 during the Solstice event. We encourage you to register for both. Discounts are available when you register. This route includes timed sections and awards.

About the Double Creek Event: 

The Double Creek event was established to provide support to programs that benefit underinsured kids and the families who provide care for them. All money raised will benefit WellSpan’s Prescription for Caring program, which provides medications to uninsured patients, underinsured patients, and those who are insured but are struggling with multiple healthcare issues and life circumstances.

100% of the proceeds from this event will be used for the Prescription for Caring program. This past year, 83% of those served had $30,000 or less in household income. This pharmacy program provided more than 13,000 free life-sustaining medications to patients without insurance. Your participation in Double Creek helps these patients stay healthy!

      10, 30, 48, 62 or 100 Mile Bike Tour

      Bicycle riders will enjoy the scenic and lightly traveled roads of York and Adams counties. You will enjoy green stretches of farmland, rustic bridges, and country churches while riding along the Conewago and Bermudian creeks for which the ride was named.

      New this year – we have added a 100 mile cycle route. Partnering with the “Cycle the Solstice” event, which will be held on June 24, we have come up with a 100 mile route that uses both the Double Creek and the Solstice route. We encourage you to cycle this route during both events. Sections will be timed, and prizes will be given. There is a discount if you register for both events.
