A 5K Trail Run or Walk

Here in the heart of Lancaster County is a course that has it all: wooded hillsides, a meandering Mill Creek, an historic 1890 iron bridge and a newly-surfaced eight lane track. The 90-acre Lancaster Campus features the best of the old and the new. The race is self-timed this year. Race day is October 3!


Join us on Saturday morning from 8:00 – 11:00 AM for the annual FFA Pancake Breakfast, just before the Iron Bridge 5k Run/Walk. Cost for breakfast is $7 per person for adults, and $5 per child. We encourage you to pre-order online at the link below.

Free breakfast only for “LM Buddies” this year.
Your race bib is your ticket, but you must indicate on your registration that you want breakfast.

Tee shirts are available in adult and kids sizes. Indicate a size when you register. Tee shirts are guaranteed only to those registered by September 1, 2020.

50 Years of Athletics!

Join us in celebrating 50 years of interscholastic Blazer Athletics by sporting your favorite LM jersey, shirt, gold and black! The older and more vintage the gear – the better!


In the event of cancellation due to inclement weather or COVID-19 restrictions, we will post a notice on the school website ( and also send an email to all registered runners. Should the event be cancelled, your registration fee will be considered a full donation to Lancaster Mennonite School.


In the event that our weekend activities need to adjust due to updated safety and health regulations around COVID-19 we will update this page and our social media pages with the latest information we have available, and we are already working on safe ways to be together and back-up plans should we need to make a shift. But we hope we don’t have to!
