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!

The Bounty Runner 26K is the designation you deserve for completing both The Peck Friday night and The Bushel on Saturday  You must register for The Bounty 26K in order to receive this special medal and swag! 

All runners will receive finisher medals and specially selected premiums for each event that they're registered for (if registered by September 24, 2018). The Bounty Runners receive special Bounty Runner medal/swag.

The Full Bushel Half Marathon

There's a reason 13.1 miles is the most popular event distance in the country. It gives you a chance to push yourself out of your comfort zone, but not dramatically alter your life through the training. It's a also a great distance to see a good bit of an area you might not be familiar with.
The Bushel of the Harvest Running Festival is all that and more. Beginning from Fox Chase Farm, in sleepy little Landenberg, PA, you get to run 13.1 of the most beautiful miles in Southern Chester County this fall! You'll pass hundreds of acres of preserved lands, operating farms, large horse pastures, and even run down an old wagon road! You'll finish on a portion of the Geoghegan Trail right back at the farm to a barn party... Giddy-up!

*There is a 3:30 minute (16-minute mile) cutoff time for this race. If you are not at the 9.5 mile marker by 10:00AM you will be asked to leave the course in the safety vehicle provided. After this time aid stations will be closed, police will not be monitoring traffic, roads will be re-opened, making safe passage to the finish very difficult. If you do not feel that you can maintain a 16-minute mile or less over the 13.1 mile course, for your safety, please consider a different event.
