Prep for Pittsburgh Marathon Series

Prep for Pittsburgh Marathon Series:


Event Summary:
Half-marathon and 5K races on a multi-use paved trail. The HM encircles Lake Wilhelm. The 5K is an out-and-back.

Event Details:

 This is the ninth year of an event we wish to grow into a larger fundraising event for Mercer County Trails Association, Inc.  This event is one of the most unique running races you'll ever find.  You run AROUND a lake, and then some!  Our organization is striving to connect Mercer County with its neighboring communities via many abandoned rail corridors with one ultimate goal of connecting to other trail networks that work their way from Pittsburgh, PA to Cumberland, MD to Washington, D.C.  About the race: 4 well-spaced water/electrolyte stations; an out-&-back prologue before you enter the trail through the woods; chip-timing; 5K starts 15 minutes after HM and will be simple out-&-back.

HM $20.00 + service fee

5K $12.00 + service fee
