    I opted to participate in this race for the first time since it was near my parents and I was looking for an opportunity to get some enjoyable mileage in. I knew it would be hilly. I also liked that it was a smaller race and had a long history.

    The course was very challenging. “Rolling hills” is very accurate, maybe even a bit understated. The scenery was a lovely rural landscape and we lucked out with 40s and sunshine for the race. While it’s not a fancy race, they do a great job with the medal, volunteers and overall organization. I opted to not get a shirt, which is a nice perk that you can choose that. The race fee is very reasonable.

    I’ll definitely be back year after year. It’s a great race when prepping for a spring marathon, to run competitively or just to enjoy yourself.

    This was my second year running Chambersburg. It is not a very big race, but has a lot of support on the route and great volunteers. Rolling and callenging hills on a road open to traffic.
    No headphones, or animals allowed in this race due to the narrow roadways.
    I already registered for next year…the cost is $25.00 if you sign up on race weekend.

    The course is difficult but fair, it wont kill you but it is challenging. Great race if you are looking for a small town race with great scenery. There were around 200 finishers, and the competition was not world-class, as to be expected with a small race like this but there are some very good competitors. The course is not closed to traffic, but there was barely any traffic to deal with. The race support were very nice and supportive of you cheering you on as you ran.
