For 18 years the Wyoming Valley Striders 20K Classic held in Wilkes-Barre was considered the area’s premier long distance road race. In 1993, the Striders board was forced to cancel the race due to traffic control issues. On September 13, 2014, the Striders resurrected this historic race on the beautiful D&L Trail, located in Lehigh Gorge State Park, in White Haven PA.
The Wyoming Valley Striders 20K Run is back for a 5th year! The course runs along the D&L Trail, is wheel measured and marked, has a rolled cinder surface, and is an out and back configuration with a slight decline on the way out and a slight incline on the way back. There will be water stops on the course.
Online registration pricing (with no processing fees!) right here on RunSignup.com, goes like this:

This year we're trying a different giveaway. Since cold weather is just around the corner, what could be nicer than a warm, custom-designed, commemorative throw? Each entrant who registers before close of online registration on November 10 will receive one when they check-in at the race venue on race day. Super Procrastinators, (participants who register on race day), will receive a 20K pint glass. So register early! If you've registered and unable to come to the race venue on race-day, you can make other arrangements to have someone pick up your throw.
Post-race refreshments will be provided to the runners at the finish area.
The Wyoming Valley Striders wish to acknowledge the cooperation of the Lehigh Gorge State Park and the White Haven Borough for their valuable assistance.
