directions

The Sproul 10k starts and finishes at the Western Clinton Sportmen's Association (WCSA) and is located in the most scenic region of Pennsylvania. (Note: WCSA mailing address is different than actual location for those trying to use online maps.) Just look for Hyner, PA...that's all you need!!

Since Hyner is a remote area, find Lock Haven and use this as your reference. There is one road leading out of Lock Haven towards Hyner...this is route 120 West. Starting from Lock Haven University, follow 120 West for about twenty miles. The WCSA is on the left and there is a sign saying "Nature and Environmental Center". Follow the road up to the club. Bib pickup and parking all happen at the WCSA.

Please take the time to print out directions and study the map before you head out.  Cell phone service is extremely limited/non-existent in the area and it is very remotely populated.

BIB PICKUP & start time

The race begins at 10 am at the WCSA. Bib pickup begins at 8:30 am. Please be sure to head to the start line by 9:50 am at the latest.
