This year, the race proceeds will benefit the Friends of Howland Preserve Inc. and their ongoing efforts to maintain and enhance the property features as well as a portion going again to American Legion Post 457 in Tunkhannock!

Race presented by the Endless Mountains Racing! A new non-profit organization to promote and put on unique road & trail races in NEPA!

First 100 people to register will receive a specialized race mug.
There will be a Small CASH prize for top three finishers in each gender as well as Age Group awards for the top finisher of each gender in the below age groups: -19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+

Course Description
The course will be a 5 mile trail race taking part mostly in shaded woods on single track hiking/biking trails. It will begin near the event grounds and progress up a grassy path into the trail system. The trails are mostly smooth with a few minor stonewall crossings as well as some natural drainage dips. The terrain will be relatively hilly by climbing up some 280 feet twice in the race before being rewarded with fast, flowy downhill sections.

Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions or would like to help out with the volunteer trail & race crew!
