I Ain't Afraid O' No Ghost

Experience Pennsylvania's 2020 Trail of the Year - the Ghost Town Trail! The half marathon course travels through the scenic Blacklick Creek Valley. In the past, this area was full of small mining and logging communities. Today, much of the valley has been reclaimed by nature. There are some remaining signs of these towns along the trail. The Ghost Town Trail is a must-visit destination! 

"Beautiful scenic trail; well kept. Would recommend." - Jess W, 2021 Finisher

Window Start:
All participants will have the option to start their race at any point from 8:00 am to 8:30 am. The start will be chip timed so there is no penalty to starting later. All results will be based on net (chip) time. 

"Gorgeous course. Well done!" - Gayle M, 2021 Finisher

Restrooms & Aid Stations:

  • Portable restrooms will be placed near the start/finish area and along the course.

  • Aid Stations with refreshments and first aid kits will be available along the course at miles 2, 4, 6.5 (turnaround), 9, and 11.
