[ARCHIVED] Register today for the Five Star Trail Poker Run, Saturday, July 23!

Poker Run bikers

The 17th annual Five Star Trail Poker Run will be held on Saturday, July 23 starting at Lynch Field in Greensburg. Registration begins at 8:00am and the event will start at 9:00am. The registration fee is fifteen dollars for participants who pre-register before July 8; on-site registration costs twenty dollars.

The Poker Run is not a race, but two events in one! Participants can choose a four-mile walk or a twelve-mile bike ride; but this is not a race to see who finishes first. Those participating will choose a playing card from a deck of cards at each of five checkpoints along the trail. Upon finishing the event, each participant will have assembled a full poker hand. The top three poker hands will receive a trophy and a special prize package. The Poker Run also features a giant door prize giveaway after the event, a Norco bike raffle courtesy of the Bicycle Shop – Youngwood, PA, tasty snacks for sale, a 50/50 drawing, and more!

The Westmoreland Heritage Trail Chapter has partnered again with the Five Star Trail Chapter to put on the Poker Run, and all proceeds from this event will benefit the two trail chapters. Participants can choose which trail group they would like their entry fees to be credited towards. To receive a registration form, please call the Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation at 724-830-3950 or visit

The Poker Run is a Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation, Five Star Trail, and Westmoreland Heritage Trail event. Thank you to last year’s patrons and sponsors:
