Event Description

Athletes come from all over the U.S. to try out this unique event! Join us for a race on the old abandoned Pennsylvania Turnpike. The stretch of road was bypassed in 1968, leaving 2 tunnels and miles of pavement untouched by traffic for over 50 years. The course was also featured in post-apocalyptic movie "The Road".

Registration includes a custom race hoodie, finishers medal, post-race snacks, race photos, and more.
