Pine Creek Challenge (2019)

Sept 7-8, 2019
Marathon, 50M, 100K, 100M, 100M relay

The "Pine Creek Challenge" is just that, a place to challenge yourself by seeing how far or how fast you can run. It will be a scenic trail run along Pine Creek in northern Pennsylvania. The Pine Creek Rail Trail stretches 63 miles from Wellsboro Junction to Jersey Shore and is repeatedly listed as one of the finest bike rides in the Northeast. This section is through the "Grand Canyon of the East", the Pine Creek Gorge. The Gorge stretches for 47 miles. It is nearly a mile wide and 1,450 feet deep at its deepest point. This section of Pine Creek is listed as a National Natural Landmark. It's popular with canoeists and rafters in the spring and trout fishermen are drawn here all year long.

We have set up an out and back course that uses 25 miles of the upper canyon section. We will  have the start/finish at Asaph. The 100 miler runners will go 2 out and backs to Blackwell, passing through the canyon 4 times. The 100k folks will go once to Blackwell and return. The 50 mile course will be ½ of the 100 mile course, going once to Blackwell. The marathoners will turn around just below Tiaghdaton.

Big Pond, Blue Moon (2018)

"Preparations are underway! Friday, July 27th will be our 3rd BPBM prediction run! This year, we are changing things up a bit, so please take notes...
First, we are not going to charge a registration fee this year. Instead, I am experimenting by asking for donations for the Troy Track Project. Please donate what you feel would be appropriate for our race the night of the race (or give more, haha) in lieu of a normal registration fee.

Secondly, to save some money, we aren't hiring a timing system. We will have our clock counting down to midnight, and we will record your start & finish time by hand. Unfortunately, renting timing systems has gotten too expensive and because our race is a bit unique, it's not really necessary for us. We will still post results that night and online the next day so that you can see how close you were to your predicted pace. We will still award our prizes to the top 5 predictors who finish after midnight that night at the post race party. (that part is easy for us to figure out).

Thirdly, because we are not setting a set registration fee, I am asking that you reserve your spot for the run by visiting:
At the bottom of the page is an RSVP form. Fill it out and we will make sure we have enough supplies (and beer!) on hand for all of you! Which reminds me......THANK YOU BLUESTONE BREWERY for again sponsoring our race and providing the post-race beverages!
Thanks and feel free to ask any questions if that wasn't clear ~Matt"

You’ll be running up/over/around/through rocks, tree roots, grass, dirt and a few hills. It is a little more challenging than your normal 5k run and is not stroller friendly. You will DEFINITELY have fun!"
