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.

The first 700 registered participants will receive an event shirt. There is a $10 discount for registering on or before March 26, and $5 for registering on or before April 22.

Proceeds from the event support Montour Trail maintenance and development.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide refunds.

 

Tour the Montour

Tour the Montour is a non-competitive fundraising ride. It offers a fun family Saturday event as well as rides for the more-serious cyclist. Ride lengths vary from a short distance to 62 miles (a metric 100). Rest stops with fruit, snacks and beverages are placed along the course. A great post-ride lunch won’t disappoint. SAG (support and gear) patrol is provided along the Trail. And we’re famous for our fabulous commemorative T-shirts, door prizes, raffles, and great times with fellow cyclists. We suggest that you ride with a friend!

For safety reasons, no headphones allowed and helmets are mandatory. The Tour the Montour takes place rain or shine.
