State Line Streak 5K Race at White Thorn Lodge in Darlington, PA
From July 7-9th, 2017, White Thorn Lodge is hosting the 6th Annual competitive 5K State Line Steak weekend throughout their grounds!
Since this year is predicted to be one of the worst tick seasons in years, the course will be the same as last year and keep you on the main roads throughout the campgrounds, avoiding the trails.
The weekend will begin on Friday evening with a pasta dinner included for the Friday – Sunday registrants. Fun competitive games are scheduled beginning Friday evening and will continue through Sunday morning for a chance to win Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals for age categories.
Saturday morning the gates are opening early at 6:30 am for anyone who would like to register the day of, and the race starts promptly at 8:00 am. At 9:00 am there will be a massage therapist available to help you work out those sore muscles as well as 10:00 am water aerobics for those who didn’t get enough exercise running the course.
There will be plenty of fun filled activities throughout the day like a scavenger hunt, swimming pool games, and of course the competitive “Thirsty Mile” where alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage options will be available.
Saturday evening there will be a BBQ dinner option, and we will close out the evening with an ABC (Anything But Clothes) Dance Party where revelers can use their creativity to design their fashions for the evening. Sunday morning there will be complimentary coffee available at the snack bar for all race participants during breakfast hours of 8 – 9:30am.
Here is what one runner said about last year’s (2016) race: “The race was very well-organized with an enthusiastic staff who provided excellent refreshments for the race participants. The course is a wide, wooded trail with two identifiable hills that consists of a 2.5K loop. The older runners and female runners were amazingly fast and strong. I think the winner was sub-6:00 pace and he was older than I am I think. One of the 55 and up female runners ran in the 24’s sub 8:00 pace.”
This event is for people of all skill levels so come out, get naked, run a 5K, and enjoy all of the wonderful festivities that the people of White Thorn Lodge have planned out for you. We look forward to seeing everyone at the event where you can make the State Line Streak part of your annual tradition.
