Flat, fast, and shaded!
The Warrior Trail runs along the west bank of the Susquehanna River in Luzerne County, PA. The out-and-back route has a total elevation gain/loss of 11 feet and 90% of the trail is shaded. It's the perfect spot for a socially-distanced, mid-summer run.

We have to make some modifications to allow our event to happen and to happen safely. Subject to change, here are some current plans/procedures.
*All COVID-19 "green" phase restrictions will be strictly followed.
*Up to 50 runners/walkers may start every 20 minutes. The race will be chip-timed, so your time does not begin until you cross the start line.
*Runners will register for 20-minute "starting windows" and will be expected to start during that window.
*There will be water bottles (no open cups) at the start of the race, and near 2.5, 4, 5.5, 7.5, 9, and 10.5 miles. You may drink and throw away the bottle or carry it to the next stop.
*The 50 runners in each group shall be staggered 6 feet apart from each other. Wait until the runner is 10-20 yards away from you before you start.
*Half-Marathon 20-minute start windows will run between 6:30 and 8:10 am.
*Quarter-Marathon 20-minute start windows run between 8:10 and 8:50 am.
*The race will be chip-timed, so your individual time will not start until you cross the starting line.
*All participants will be expected to wear face coverings in the registration/start/finish areas and to maintain a 6-foot distance from all runners not in their household. It is up to you whether you wear one along the course.
*RESULTS will be posted online (no results kiosk available at the finish line). Age group and overall awards certificates will be e-mailed following the race.
