This is a challenging 5 mile course that starts in the town of Terre Hill and takes you through the
surrounding farmland.
 The course takes you up and down the  scenic hills of Lancaster County. The first mile is fairly flat and the second mile has the first hill, with the second climb occurring at about 3.5 miles. Those climbs are followed by a final flat mile through town.

Proceeds benefit the Eastern Lancaster County Library in New Holland, PA. This is the first year the ELANCO Library is organizing this race and our goal is to increase awareness for library services, as well as to raise money to purchase books and other materials for the library. The Shoe-Fly 5 has a rich history in our community and the ELANCO Library is excited to revive it after a year hiatus.
