Make plans now to joins us at the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, in beautiful Tioga County, PA.
The course takes you along the west rim of the canyon and features some of the most breathtaking views you can imagine. The half marathon course has been wheel measured for accuracy and every mile will be marked. The full marathon course is USATF Certified, #PA13024WB, making it a Boston Qualifier. See Course Info page for details on both courses.
The setting is unique, but these races feature all the amenities of a big city event - chip timing, tech shirts, custom die-cast finisher's medal, personalized age group awards, expo, pasta dinner, goodie bag, on-course support, photographers, music, food, and so much more. Proceeds are going to the Second Chance Animal Sanctuary, www.secondchanceas.org - thanks for your support!
Want to really test yourself? You can ROCK the CANYON! Run BOTH races - the half marathon on Saturday and the full marathon on Sunday. You'll get a discount on your entry fees, receive a third finisher's medal, and be eligible for ROCK the CANYON age group awards. The age group awards will be personalized and mailed to you.
