This is going to be a great event with amazing scenery!

Emporium is the ”Elk Capital of Pennsylvania” and is located in the heart of the state’s wild elk herd, now numbering almost 1,000 majestic animals.

  • The Full Marathon will be a certified Boston Marathon Qualifier!
  • The course is in the process of certification and we guarantee that it will be certified.
  • Here's a course map:
  • We are proud to announce that we have a non-binary registration option that has their own awards categories: overall and age groups.
  • All first time half marathon and marathon finishers will receive a plaque that commemorates their first half or full marathon finish that the athlete will receive along with their finisher’s medal. Find Mark at the end of the race and let him know you ran your first marathon or half.

Registration entry fees include a finisher's medal and fast-finishes logo ankle socks. Entries no longer include a race t-shirt or jacket. Starting this year, you may order jackets and/or a race t-shirt at the registration site as an add-on to the base registration fee.
