Sunday, Oct. 30, 2022
More details to come...
We're excited to announce a new running experience in Gettysburg! The CommUnity Spirit 10-mile Race will offer participants a course that will take you through town and out into the countryside, and at the same time pull in many community partners to aid in raising much-needed funds for the YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.
The run will begin at the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County, 909 Fairfield Road, travel through parts of historic Gettysburg Borough including the iconic Steinwehr Avenue with views of the Pennsylvania Memorial, past beautifully preserved farms in Cumberland and Freedom townships, over the Sachs Covered and Eisenhower bridges and end at the Gettysburg Heritage Center on Steinwehr Avenue.
