Memorial Miracle Miles 5k Trail Run

Carantouan Cloverleaf 4k Trail Run

2016 Bradford County Running Calendar

You've heard of buying American and eating local right? Racing local is just as important to the health (literally) of the community. Supporting local races raises money for local causes, keeps local residents physically and mentally healthy, and brings tourists to town. 

Last year there were nearly 50 different open-to-the-public running events in Bradford County. The number of local races has increased steadily each of the past four years. Race directors need to announce their race dates early to avoid scheduling conflicts as well as to allow local athletes to make room on their busy calendars. The 2016 Bradford County Running Calendar is designed to help do both. 

To add a race post your info on the facebook calendar or email complete details to me at

3rd Annual CJ's Resolution Challenge

What: This is a three hour race where participants can choose their challenge.  The objective in RC Revolutions is to run as many laps of the 1.6 mile loop as you can (or only as many as you want!) in the three hour time limit.  Last year our top women ran 12 laps (19.2 miles) and our top men ran 14 laps (22.4 miles.)  Walkers and supervised kids are welcome.  Our other challenge is dubbed the Last Man Standing.  This challenge takes place on the same 1.6 mile loop, but its structured very differently.  Runners will have 20 minutes (12:30 pace) to complete a lap.  The time limit will decrease by one minute per lap and runners cannot start laps early.  Lap two has a 19 minute time limit, lap three has an 18 minute time limit, and so in.  Make it in before the cutoff and you continue to the next lap.  Last year our top lady ran 10 laps (16 miles) with each lap getting progressively faster, last lap being a 6:52 pace!  Our top guys ran 11 laps (17.2 miles) again with each lap getting progressively faster, their last lap a 6:15 pace!!!  There will be prizes for the top three women and men in each challenge as well a prize for top kiddo in RC Revolutions.

When: Saturday, January 2, 2016. 9am-noon.  Race day registration opens at 7:30am
Where: R. B. Winter State Park 17215 Buffalo Rd. Mifflinburg, PA 17844
Why: This is a great event aimed at raising awareness and acceptance for autism as well as funds for autism related organizations.

More Details: Cost is $35 through 12/5 then $40 thereafter.  Chipped timed by PA Runners.  Participants will get long sleeve tech shirt and custom race medal.  Additionally, there will be a DJ, delicious hot soup and snacks, representatives from area autism resources, and a basket raffle with great prizes up for bids.  For more information or to register online, check out the website 


And if you just can't make it on race day, take advantage of the virtual option!  Registration for the virtual is also on the website.  Virtual event page-

Twin Tiers Craft Beer Club

The old adage that "American Beer Sucks" is a lie. While a few big German-American brands that survived prohibition indeed rule the market with their cookie cutter pale lagers, over the past few decades American brewing has experienced a renaissance which has more recently exploded to account for more than 10% of the beer market. Some of the best, most creative, and original beer made today is produced right here in America, with Southern NY / North East Pa quickly becoming a hotbed for craft brewing.

The Twin Tiers Craft Beer Club is here to support Micro Brewers, Home Brewers, Craft Beer Sellers, and Craft Beer lovers in the Twin Tiers. We are located in Northern Bradford County (Sayre / Athens / Waverly) and support brewing across our region. Brewers and Sellers feel free to promote your products to our members. Beer lovers - discuss your favorites. Home Brewers - improve your craft.

2nd Annual Mason's Hope Super Hero 5k

When: Aug 23, 9:00AM
Location Bradford County YMCA 9 College Ave Towanda PA 18848



Race Background: For those of you that know Mason’s story, you know it has not been an easy road. Mason has congenital disorder of glycosylation (CDG) which causes malfunction of different organ systems. In addition to CDG, Mason suffers from many other diseases. There is no cure for Mason. His diseases are so unique and rare that doctors from around the world continue to conduct research to find how they are all tied together and how best to treat Mason. While they continue their research, Mason continues the fight. Not expected to survive past the age of two, his will to live, amazing personality and spirit has helped him to defy all odds. Mason turned fourteen in June. This gives us all HOPE.
