A Celebration of Human Potential!

Southern Chester County will be on full display for the 2nd Annual Harvest Running Festival. A cross-country Friday night 5K in the dark followed the next morning by an exhilarating half marathon. Run one event or do them both to complete The Bounty Runner 26K Challenge. All of this will be taking place in the most beautiful corner pocket of Southeastern Pennsylvania this October 12th & 13th.

Fox Chase Farm will be host for this spectacular autumn event. Formerly part of the range of the Lenape tribe, this 148 acre working farm will be our Event HQ, with parking, events start and finish, and a field party you won't want to miss!
