Friends and Family Day

The Lobsta Run will be having our annual "Friends and Family Day” at 12 pm on Saturday, Aug. 14 at Nanty Glo Park and Pool, Hayes pavilion (the pavilion next to the pool parking lot).

What is friends and family day? It is a picnic to thank all our great customers for supporting our business!

Lobster cooking pots will be available so you can enjoy the lobsters you have purchased right at our picnic. (We provide the butter!) Please pre-order your lobsters on our website. There will be lots of other food provided, and we encourage everyone to bring a covered dish. We will have games and activities for kids too! There is swimming available at the pool (regular admission rates apply).

We will still be taking orders for regular pick-up of live lobsters, but they will need to be picked up at the Nanty Glo Park & Pool, we will NOT be at Ford's Corner Beverage that date. Pick-ups only will begin at 11 am and the picnic will begin at noon. Also, we will NOT be at Ligonier Country Market on that date.

We hope to see you on Aug. 14!

Our Story

LEARN MORE ABOUT US

The idea for The Lobsta Run began back in 2016 when a close friend and I planned a summer road trip to Maine to relax and bring back fresh, live lobsters for our friends and family.  In our first year, we brought back 125 live lobsters.  Everyone loved the lobster and word quickly spread of their quality and affordability.  The Lobsta Run grew as order numbers doubled every year!  Last year, The Lobsta Run made three trips to Maine, and my “sternmen” and I brought back 4,550 lobsters!

Over the last five years, I have developed a great working relationship with a lobster fisherman from Cape Neddick, Maine who supplies the lobster for The Lobsta Run.  Our lobsters are seasoned by storing them overnight in a 40-degree chilling tank. Seasoning the lobster reduces their core temperature and prepares them for their ten-hour journey in my custom-built refrigerated trailer.  This process allows me to bring you the freshest, liveliest, and best tasting lobster available in western Pennsylvania at an affordable price!
 

Thanks for your business and hope to see you soon!
