Path of the Flood Historic Races

Saturday, May 26, 2018 (All day)


The Path of the Flood Historic Races allow runners to experience the historic 1889 Johnstown Flood in its entirety with the half marathon, or in small droplets through the 5K or 12K races. The course follows the Path of the Flood Trail and goes through Staple Bend Tunnel, the first railroad tunnel in the U.S. The finish is at Peoples Natural Gas Park where you can see the historic Stone Bridge, which still stands after stopping the majority of the flood’s energy.

Our hybrid road/rail trail course beckons you to be a part of history once again! This event is hosted by the Johnstown Area Heritage Association and the Cambria County Conservation & Recreation Authority – all proceeds benefit the Cambria County Trails and the heritage of the Johnstown region.
