York’s Oldest Running Event! Running Strong Since 1977. The first York White Rose Run was held in 1977 and has been run on the streets of York City for 36 consecutive years. The race has drawn as many as 600+ runners and has been known to attract a field of elite runners from the local and regional areas including Philadelphia, Baltimore, and New York. The USATA certified, five-mile course starts at the 200 block of North George Street, climbs the hills to Farquhar Park and finish at the Brooks Robinson Plaza in front of the Sovereign Bank Stadium.
Benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters
The York White Rose Run is proud to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of York & Adams Counties – an organization committed to helping empower at-risk youth to make responsible life choices through professionally supervised mentoring relationships with adult and student volunteer role models.
Our goal is to donate the funds required to establish and support a SMART program.
SMART stands for Students and Mentors Achieving Results Together. The high school or college mentors in the program help their Littles by being a positive role-model and friend. The elementary students and mentors are paired one-on-one to get to know each other and to build a positive relationship.
