The first annual Chernisky Ghost Town Trail-a-thon is a weekend of fun and safe gathering on the Ghost Town Trail!
Registrants are invited to participate in a foot race on Saturday, October 2nd, and/or a bicycle ride on Sunday, October 3rd.
The foot race consists of 3 offered distances:
- Marathon (26.2 miles) - Participants are dropped off at the starting point in Ebensburg, PA and run the full marathon course to end at Duman Lake County Park. The course takes runners down the recent 2 mile extension of the C & I Trail through Revloc and back to the main stem, then spans from Ebensburg to Vintondale along the GTT, right to follow the Rexis Branch/C & I Extension, then extends to the left down the recently constructed trail that connects the GTT system to Duman Lake County Park.
- 15 miler - Participants are dropped off at the starting point in Nanty Glo, PA and run the 15-mile course to end at Duman Lake County Park. The course is the same as the marathon, but starting at a later point in Nanty Glo.
- 5k - Participants run/walk an out and back course both beginning and ending at Duman Lake County Park using the recently constructed trail which connects the Ghost Town Trail system to the park.
Transportation will be available for participants from the finish line in Duman Lake County Park to their respective starting lines for the marathon and 15-miler. Due to pandemic restrictions, we ask that you arrange a personal ride if able, but do require a mask to be worn while on the buses. A post-race festival will be offered for participants to enjoy food, refreshments and entertainment after they finish.
