Spectators

We know that many will want to support their friends and/or family members as they compete in the race. However, many sections of the Jim Thorpe Running Festival aren't readily accessible.

There will be only be a few areas from which to cheer racers on from. Viewing locations include:

  • Mauch Chunk Lake State Park, miles 6-9
  • Finish line at the intersection of Packer Hill Ave and Center Ave

Spectators should park at either Mauch Chunk Lake or at the Carbon County Municipal parking lot. The finish line is roughly 3/10 of a mile from the parking lot.
