The 4th annual biathlon & 5k take place on a scenic course at and around Codorus State Park in Hanover PA, just as the leaves are starting to change. The biathlon is a 2 mile flat road run, a 12 mile not flat bike ride with views of the lake from many angles, ending with a 2 mile road & trail run through the park.
The 5k is a combination road & trail run (mostly trail) through the park and along the lake!
