10th Annual 5K & Fun Run

Moving Forward Together

Join the Spartan community as alumni, faculty and staff, friends and family come together in-person for the 10th Annual 5K and Fun Run event on Saturday, October 2, 2021, during Fall Fest & Homecoming Weekend. We will also offer the virtual race option that was available last year.

The 5K and Fun Run is open to the entire York College community and the general public. Online registration for the 5K will close on September 30, but registration will also be accepted on the day of the event.

We invite all participants and guests to join us for Fall Fest & Homecoming Weekend activities following the event. 

You can support all aspects of the York experience, providing resources and building relationships that allow our students and campus to grow by giving to the area of greatest need, York College.

Please see below for entry fees and more information about the race. Thank you to our title sponsor, Apple Automotive, for helping us make this race a reality!

You may contact the Office of Alumni Relations at or 717.815.6642 with any questions.
