Welcome to our non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for the local food bank. At the heart of our mission lies the rich tradition of the Pennsylvania Hunt Cup, where passion for equestrian sports intertwines with the spirit of community giving.
The Pennsylvania Hunt Cup is a timber steeplechase race with a distance of four miles and 18 fences, over fair hunting country. From its inception it has been intended as a substantial test of both horse and rider, and is one of just three 4-mile steeplechase races sanctioned by the National Steeplechase Association. First run in 1921 over a course in Whitemarsh , PA, the race moved to the present location in Unionville PA in 1964, where it has been held annually since. Over the years the race meeting has grown so that the race day card now includes three sanctioned timber races, an apprentice flat race and the Pennsylvania Junior Hunt Cup for children.
Established with the aim of making a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need, this exhilarating event not only showcases the thrilling spectacle of horse racing but also serves as a platform to raise vital funds for the Chester County Food Bank.
We believe in the power of unity and collaboration, as we bring together individuals, businesses, and equestrian enthusiasts from all walks of life to support a common cause. Through our collective efforts, we strive to alleviate hunger in our community and ensure that no one goes to bed on an empty stomach.
The Pennsylvania Hunt Cup tradition is more than just a race; it symbolizes a shared commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of others. By participating in or attending our event, you become an integral part of this noble cause, standing alongside us in the fight against food insecurity.
Every donation, every stride made during the race, and every voice raised in support echoes the unwavering dedication of our community to uplift those facing hardship. With your involvement, we can continue to bolster the resources of our local food bank, ensuring that they can provide sustenance and hope to those who need it most.
