Other Information

10K and 5K Runs Course Details: An out and back course (completely on the Montour Trail) with one turnaround for both 5K and 10K. The race starts on the trail at the top of the access path from Cecil Park to the Trail and heads east towards National tunnel. The 10K run goes through the National Tunnel, with the turnaround about 1/2 mile east of the tunnel portal. The 5K race turnaround is prior to the tunnel.

The finish line is on the trail near the start line. The course contains a very light uphill grade from the starting line to a peak at the tunnel followed by a very light downhill grade to the 10K turnaround.

The trail is about 10 ft. wide and has a packed limestone surface. The course is USA Track & Field Certified. Water and sports drink will be provided to participants during the race.

The 2K Family Fun walk also starts on the trail at the top of the Cecil Park access path and heads west continuing to a turnaround past the Rt. 50 & 980 bridge.

After the event a lunch is served along with beer, sports drinks & water.
