2020 Half Marathon Info

The half marathon has been rescheduled and will take place on Saturday, September 26th. Participants will be asked to park at Mauch Chunk Lake Park by 7:15 am. A free shuttle will then transport them to the top of Flagstaff Mountain, where they will begin the half marathon at 8 am. Participants who wish to be dropped at the starting line of the half-marathon must arrive by 7:30 am. After that, the road will be closed.

Considered a "beginner" trail run, the half marathon will take runners on pavement, a dirt trail, grass, and a gravel road. With an overall elevation drop of nearly 700 feet and scenery that changes from the mountains to the lake-shore to a campground to an orchard trail, the half marathon route has been called one of the most interesting and enjoyable in the Northeast. 

Aid stations offering water, sports-drinks, first-aid, and fuel will be placed roughly every two miles, and restrooms are available throughout the half marathon course.
