Gettysburg Festival of Races

The Gettysburg Festival of Races is the combination of three historic races in one single weekend! Come and race alongside the hallowed ground of Gettysburg battlefield. Our course winds through beautiful wooded back country roads, past fields and farms, and passes through the southern end of the main battlefield of Gettysburg.

Choose to compete in Gettysburg North-South Marathon, Gettysburg Blue-Gray Half Marathon, or Gateway 5K. Saturday features our bigger and better health and fitness expo from 1-7pm.

Registration opens on June 1, 2022. Come join us for a new and improved course!

Join Historians and Licensed Battlefield Guides Tim Smith and Garry Adelman for a lively and fast-paced tour to some of Gettysburg’s most storied places with photos, fighting and folklore throughout.

The event will occur rain, shine, or snow. Please be prepared in terms of footwear and raingear, if needed. Some have found a portable stool to be helpful during stops. This eight-mile hike can only be enjoyed on foot. Expect rugged terrain but on established trails of grass, mulch or pavement. We will start, break for (BYO) lunch, and finish at the Museum and Visitor Center.

Tickets are $25 for current ACHS members and $40 for non-members.

Join Downtown Chambersburg Inc. for Sip & Stroll – Presented by The Stacy Mellot Group with Remax 1st Advantage, Saturday, Nov. 6th, from 1pm-5pm! This fundraising event combines all that we love about downtown Chambersburg! Experience downtown as it’s meant to be experienced – while strolling! The event will have two “waves” of ticket holders – 1PM to 4PM and 2PM and 5PM.

At our November event, Downtown and local businesses and vendors have paired up to offer some of the best beer, wine, liquor and cider our area has to offer! Ticket holders will stroll around the downtown, visiting different businesses and tasting a variety of beer!

Event is rain or shine! However, should we receive a major storm, our inclement weather date is Nov. 13th (for the Nov. 6th event). Tickets go on sale for the March event on February 19th. Non-refundable after October 29. All proceeds from this event support the mission of Downtown Chambersburg Inc.

Every Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 PM from April until October, docents from the National Museum of Civil War Medicine will explain how Frederick became “One Vast Hospital.” Arguably the most trying moment in city’s history came after the Battle of Antietam in the fall of 1862. The town’s population doubled when 8,000 wounded soldiers were delivered by ambulance to make-shift hospitals throughout Frederick.

Initially the walking tours will be limited to 12 participants. Masks are required throughout the tour and we request that you practice strict social distancing. Tickets are $15 and include admission to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in addition to the walking tour. Tickets are free for Museum members, but you must still reserve your spot. Reservations will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

With accounts taken from the diaries and letters of the surgeons, soldiers, and civilians who were there, this guided walking tour will explore the locations of the city’s Civil War hospitals in churches, schools, and public buildings. This program is an excellent way to take in downtown Frederick as many of those same buildings still make up the historic district today.

Throughout the American Civil War, Frederick, Maryland played a vital role to both Union and Confederate armies. Soldiers marched beneath the “Clustered Spires” on their way to battles at Antietam, Gettysburg, and Monocacy. The “One Vast Hospital” tour focuses on the wreckage left behind.

For over 10 years, participants have been enjoying this springtime adventure challenge in two separate events, a 50k and 15k, both culminating in a finish-line picnic celebration at the Ironmaster’s Mansion at Pine Grove Furnace State Park, the famed halfway point along the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. We are sorry we could not offer the 50k in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, however, we look forward to offering both events once again in September 2021. You’ll experience the same challenging and rewarding day — the rock scrambles, grueling ascents, ridgeline vistas, wildflowers, rushing streams and lakesides, and epic single track trails through Michaux State Forest.

For those new to the race, the Ironmaster’s Challenge features a 50K Ultra and a 15K Challenge, both of which are open to trail runners and hikers, and feature the beautiful woodlands of Pine Grove Furnace State Park and surrounding Michaux State Forest. Each course is wheel-measured and each event is professionally timed by Pretzel City Sports for instant results. Radio communications, staffed food and water checkpoints, and additional water stations are provided. Every year participants praise the trail course for its challenging features, scenic quality and diversity, and finish-line reception at the charming Ironmaster’s Mansion.

Other benefits included in your registration are a tech t-shirt, a finisher’s premium for the 50K Ultra event, a finishline picnic lunch, and a plentiful supply of local beer provided by our beverage sponsor, Molly Pitcher Brewing Company (Carlisle, PA). Each participant will be provided with instructions, trail maps, check point locations, and water/aid stations.

The Ironmaster’s Challenge is organized as a fundraiser by Central Pennsylvania Conservancy (CPC), the nonprofit land trust for the surrounding five county-region. All proceeds from the race support CPC’s mission to acquire, preserve and protect important natural areas in our region through land acquisition, conservation easements, and outreach.

Every Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 PM from April until October, docents from the National Museum of Civil War Medicine will explain how Frederick became “One Vast Hospital.” Arguably the most trying moment in city’s history came after the Battle of Antietam in the fall of 1862. The town’s population doubled when 8,000 wounded soldiers were delivered by ambulance to make-shift hospitals throughout Frederick.

Initially the walking tours will be limited to 12 participants. Masks are required throughout the tour and we request that you practice strict social distancing. Tickets are $15 and include admission to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in addition to the walking tour. Tickets are free for Museum members, but you must still reserve your spot. Reservations will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

With accounts taken from the diaries and letters of the surgeons, soldiers, and civilians who were there, this guided walking tour will explore the locations of the city’s Civil War hospitals in churches, schools, and public buildings. This program is an excellent way to take in downtown Frederick as many of those same buildings still make up the historic district today.

Throughout the American Civil War, Frederick, Maryland played a vital role to both Union and Confederate armies. Soldiers marched beneath the “Clustered Spires” on their way to battles at Antietam, Gettysburg, and Monocacy. The “One Vast Hospital” tour focuses on the wreckage left behind.

Every Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 PM from April until October, docents from the National Museum of Civil War Medicine will explain how Frederick became “One Vast Hospital.” Arguably the most trying moment in city’s history came after the Battle of Antietam in the fall of 1862. The town’s population doubled when 8,000 wounded soldiers were delivered by ambulance to make-shift hospitals throughout Frederick.

Initially the walking tours will be limited to 12 participants. Masks are required throughout the tour and we request that you practice strict social distancing. Tickets are $15 and include admission to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in addition to the walking tour. Tickets are free for Museum members, but you must still reserve your spot. Reservations will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

With accounts taken from the diaries and letters of the surgeons, soldiers, and civilians who were there, this guided walking tour will explore the locations of the city’s Civil War hospitals in churches, schools, and public buildings. This program is an excellent way to take in downtown Frederick as many of those same buildings still make up the historic district today.

Throughout the American Civil War, Frederick, Maryland played a vital role to both Union and Confederate armies. Soldiers marched beneath the “Clustered Spires” on their way to battles at Antietam, Gettysburg, and Monocacy. The “One Vast Hospital” tour focuses on the wreckage left behind.
