OUR plan in response to the covid-19 Emergency

(our commitment to Keeping you Safe)

To all participants and volunteers:



Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time!

With the Governor's extension of his Stay-at-Home Order until May 8th and a gradual re-opening of the state, it looks we won't be able to pull off our original Susquehanna Warrior Tail 5K Run/Fun Walk Plan A (optimistically re-planned for May 23rd).


Plan B incorporates some innovative ideas and we really think that this will be happening!


RESCHEDULE DATE:  JUNE 13, 2020 from 7:00am to 6:00pm


Race Format: To comply with with CDC guidelines and an anticipated restriction on group size, the Susquehanna Warrior Trail Run will be moving to an ALL DAY, Time Trial format.  Runners will be able to start anytime between 7a.m. and 6p.m.  The race will be scored by chip timing measured from your individual start time to your finish time.  


Packet Pickup and Pre-Registration: Will be available several days prior to event, and throughout the day of race, to avoid any crowd size. Early options:

  • Wednesday, June 10th from 6:30am to 10:00am at Five Mountains Brewing Co, 156 PA-239, Shickshinny, PA 18655

  • Friday, June 12th from 7:00am to 11:00am at  Pour Coffee House, 53 N Main St, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18701

  • Friday, june 12th from 1:30pm to 3:30pm at Five Mountain Outfitters, 95 S Main St, Shickshinny, PA 18655

  • Friday, June 12th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at Five Mountains Brewing Co, 156 PA-239, Shickshinny, PA 18655                                

Award Ceremony: There will not be a physical award ceremony after the race.  Age Group Awards (our specially designed medals) and our unique, hand-crafted awards for Overall Male and Female winners will still be distributed.  Details TBA


Since we have always been one of the races with the good food, we will try not to disappoint.


Our t-shirts have arrived, same soft, high quality shirt as previous years.


If you would like to do a virtual run benefitting the Trail, please register, run your 5K whenever and whereever and email your time to jomocarup@aol.com. We will have a post of virtual results and mail you your goodie bag.


This has obviously been a very tough time for runners, event directors, and everyone else in the events industry, in addition to the health care workforce and everyone else in the world. We will be sure to do our best for our participants moving forward.


Please check our website: www.susquehannawarriortrail.org or our facebook page: 13th Annual Susquehanna Warrior Trail 5K/Fun Walk for updates.


Public safety is paramount, and it will continue to be our top priority as race time approaches.
