Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon!  
The 2nd annual running of the PA Grand Canyon Marathon will be on Sunday, July 27, 2014 in the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, just outside Wellsboro, PA.

New for 2014 - we've added a half marathon on Saturday, July 26, 2014!  And since the half is a different day, you have the opporunity to ROCK the CANYON by running BOTH races!   ROCK the CANYON runners receive discounted registration and a bonus custom third finisher's medal.

Also new for 2014 - we've added age group awards!  Three awards deep, for both male and female, in 5 year groups.

And one more thing new for 2014 - EXPO!  In the cafeteria of Wellsboro High School.  We'll have vendors and packet pick up, on Friday, July 25, from 1:30 PM to 8:30 PM, and again on Saturday, July 26, from 12 noon to 7:30 PM. 

And yet one more thing new for 2014 - two pasta dinners to choose from!  (Or go to both if you're really hungry!)  Friday and Saturday evenings, 5 PM - 9 PM, at The Moose Lodge in Wellsboro.  Click the "EXPO" tab for details and to sign up!

Events do have a hard cap - registration will close when  cap is reached.

Both of the courses takes you along the west rim of the canyon and features some of the most breathtaking views you can imagine.  The full marathon course is USATF certified - *USATF course # PA13024WB.  That plus chip timing = Boston Qualifier!  Half Marathon course is not certified, but has been wheel measured for accuracy and every mile will be marked.  See Course Info page for details on both courses.

Enjoy the hospitality of the beautiful town of Wellsboro, with gas lights lining the streets, historic buildings, and a warm nostalgic atmosphere.  But make no mistake, the races feature all the amenities
of a big city event - chip timing, tech shirts, custom finisher's medal, goodie bag, on-course support, photographers, music, food, and so much more.  Proceeds are going to the Greenway Project, funding the completion of the rail trail system in Wellsboro.
