    This race is on an old abandoned turnpike in PA. The condition is as mother nature made it. The roads are chunked up. There are lots of potholes and loose asphalt everywhere. Weeds are growing through the cracks. The tunnels are dark and graffitied. And by dark, I mean you need more than just your headlamp. It’s hard to imagine it when cars and trucks flew fast on it.

    I love this race for the amazing and interesting course. The staff do an amazing job keeping everything running smoothly and hassle-free. It’s a small race with 250 runners this year.

    There was a bit of a snafu concerning the start and finish line this year which resulted in Trivium Racing having to cancel the marathon altogether. However, they offered the marathoners spots for the half marathon distance. It’s my understanding that most of the marathoners took them up on that option.

    The run shuttle buses between the race and the host hotel for ease of transportation. However, there was also ample parking. I carpooled with friends and we stayed in our car until the last possible minute, which worked out quite well.

    Swag includes a finisher medal and a hoodie. The hoodie is just the perfect thing to get because you will get chilled after the race. It’s thick and soft and nicely designed. There is a ton of food at the finish, mich more than you might expect for a small race. The placement awards are to die for. They are “road signs” you can hang up and be proud of.

    I hope to do this race year after year.

    The race course is on the old abandoned Pennsylvania turnpike. There are plenty of rollings hills that are not too easy and not too hard. The tunnel itself was 2 miles long and you go through it twice. It’s absolutely black in the tunnels so you need your headlamps and flashlights. The roads outside the tunnels are very broken up since they have not been repaired since 1968 when the turnpike was abandoned. The roads inside the tunnels are in perfect shape since they had not seeing weather. There is plenty of debris and broken concrete inside tunnels to be aware of. All of this is outlined in the course description of the time you register and add to the ambience of the race. I’ve done well over 100 road races and I think this is probably one of the best course routes ever.

    For swag we received a black hoodie and a large medal. Both were very well done and high-quality. After the race there was a lot of pizza and candy and chocolate milk and other snacks being served. For an inexpensive race the swag is really awesome.

    I definitely plan to do this race again.
