Rail Trail 10-Miler FAQ

Where can I park for the race?
There is parking available at the start line at Liberty Christian Fellowship Church (7 Maple Street, Seven Valleys, PA).  There is also parking at the finish line across the street from the Agricultural and Industrial Museum (217 W. Princess Street, York, PA). 
Are there water stations on the course?
Yes.  Water stations are located around miles 3, 6, 7,  and 9.   We will also have water available in the start line area and immediately after you finish the race.  Water stations are located at points along the route with access for the volunteers to set up.
When and where is race packet pickup?
Officially, race packet pickup is scheduled for Thursday, August 22 and Friday, August 23 at The Arc of York County (497 Hill Street, York, PA 17403) from 8:00 AM- 6:00 PM.  Traditionally, since race packet pickup prior to race day is highly recommended, we have opened race packet pickup on the Monday before the race and allowed runners to pick up their packets at The Arc of York County during their regular working hours that entire week.
Where do I pick up my packet if I cannot make it prior to race day? 
Bus riders can pick up their packet on race day before they board the bus in the finish line area.  Non-bus riders can pick up their packet at Liberty Christian Fellowship Church in Seven Valleys starting at 7:00 AM on race day.

I registered for the race but now I am unable to make it.  Can I get a refund or can I transfer my bib number?
Unfortunately, no, we do not give refunds or bib transfers.  We thank you for your donation and your support of those we serve.
I have a bag that I need to get from the start to the finish line.  How do I get it there?
New this year- we are offering a bag transfer shuttle.  Simply put your bag in the van marked "Bag Transfer Shuttle" located in the registration area and the van will be at the finish line when you arrive.  
Can I push a jogging stroller during the race? 
No participants using bicycles, baby strollers, baby joggers, roller skates, scooters or skateboards are allowed.
Can I run with my dog? 
We love dogs and other animals but in this case, for the safety of others and your furry friend, we do not allow dogs in the race.
