WVS Winter&#39,s End 4.5 Mile Run: race description

NEPA is well known for a winter season that loves to hang on, so come out on Sunday March 19th, 2017 to the Wyoming Valley Strider's Winter's End Run in an effort to shake off the last of the cold weather blues! Our race features a scenic rolling hills 4.5 mile course in the Lehman area near Penn State, Wilkes Barre.

We know that the area's weather can vary in late March! Sometimes the race course features a light coating of snow at no extra charge!

For giveaways, we plan on offering each entrant a choice of various Wyoming Valley Striders swag. 

Light refreshments will be served after the race.

Club members receive a $2.00 discounted entry fee when using the coupon code emailed in January.

The race directors reserve the right to accept or reject any entry.

Entry fee is not refundable.
