Join us for two days of running and biking along PA’s 2020 Trail of the Year at the 2nd annual Chernisky Ghost Town Trail-a-thon!

The running event will take place on Saturday, October 1st, offering a full marathon, 15-miler or 5k for runners to enjoy. The bicycling event is an unsupported leisurely ride along the Ghost Town Trail on Sunday, October 2nd. All pre-registered participants will receive a commemorative long sleeve Trail-a-thon shirt. Finishers of the running races will receive a finisher’s medal, and top 3 placement prizes male/female will be issued per distance. The full marathon course spans across all but 5 miles of the Ghost Town Trail system in Cambria County, and includes the newly constructed trail connection to Duman Lake County Park. A post-race festival will follow the running event with refreshments, food and entertainment.

Those participating in the Sunday bike ride are encouraged to enjoy an out-and-back ride from Ebensburg to Vintondale on the Ghost Town Trail at 10AM. Those registered for the running events will have the option to add on the bike ride at a discounted rate of $10. One shirt will be provided for the Trail-a-thon, whether you are registered for a one day event or both.
