30, 48 or 62 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.
The route for this event will be punctuated by three rest stops. Healthy refreshments will be available at all of these stops, and a celebratory brunch will mark the end of the tour.
Since it’s beginning, the event has experienced remarkable growth, thanks in large part to the generosity of the community and participants like yourself.

5K or Half Marathon Run
The Double Creek Run takes up the legacy of an important event that was carried on at the Hospital Fete for more than 25 years. Many steps have been taken to ensure that it has kept as much of its identity and individuality as possible.
The route for this event will be punctuated by frequent water/sport drink/gel stands. A celebratory brunch will mark the end of the run. Men's and Women's Awards will be given to top finishers in 13 age groupings.
To keep everyone safe on all running routes, we ask that you do not bring animals to the event.
Participants in the Endurance Challenge will participate in the half marathon, followed by the 30 mile bike ride. The fee for the Endurance Challenge covers both events.
