York Trail Stompers - YRRC Trail Group

There is something new to offer to members of York Road Runners Club. A trail running group was voted in unanimously at the last board meeting. York Trail Stompers was born out of local trail runner Scott Newcomer’s passion for running trails. That passion and his willingness to share with other runners are sure to enhance the existing club with new ideas and new members. You now get two clubs for the price of one. Scott will lead members in scheduled runs on trails throughout the area. . The club recognizes trail running is quickly gaining popularity in the area and wants to offer members a new innovative way of enjoying an age old sport. The runs are open to runners of all abilities. Give it a try and you will find yourself challenged in that runner’s high exhilarating way. You will be stimulated by the beauty of our local parks. Negotiating single tracks with natural obstacles logs rocks and such will wake up the inner child in you as well as some muscles that have been forgotten.

The York Road Runners Club adopted The York Trail Stompers at their Oct. 2010 meeting. The club recognizing trail running is the newest growing sport in York and neighboring counties.
Under the direction of Scott Newcomer a York trail runner and the club invites all runners of all levels to participate. Trails will vary in levels of terrain and difficulty so runners know what they can expect before hitting the trail. Scott is eager to share his trail running passion with others and wants to learn about other runners experiences in return.

Trail Running Info:
If you are a new-be to trail running here are things you should be aware of.
• Feet will get wet at creek crossing
• No one clears the trails of the debris
• Bugs could be bad – (not winter time)
• Run on uneven surfaces all the time (Rocks)
• Expect to run hills on every run.
• Must pick your feet up or you will trip.
• Your Pace can be 1 to 3 minutes different due to the terrain
• Trail shoes do provide more stability and support than road shoes.
