How It Works

What is the Makin’ Whoopie Challenge?

Since the beginning of time, humans have lived for Whoopie. The Makin’ Whoopie Challenge is the mastermind idea that was born out of our three passions:

Love for scenic lancaster county pennsylvania
love for healthy lifestyle lancaster county pa
love for whoopie pie pennsylvania amish whoopie pie

The Makin’ Whoopie Challenge is a non-competitive run consisting of three 5K runs celebrating three scenic and memorably named small towns in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Using your favorite running app, you will have the opportunity to choose already marked routes depending how “in-the-mood” you are that day. You can choose to run, walk, skip, bike — or whatever is comfortable for your fitness level.

Our Whoopie-makers will get "warmed up" in Blue Ball, "go the distance" in Intercourse, and then "cool down" in Paradise.
Just follow the steps below and you'll find yourself Makin' Whoopie in no time!
