Start/Finish Area - The Kurtz Residence, 10575 Kummer Road, Wexford, PA 15090 (look for the log home).
Course - Single track running trails around the North Park Golf Course and two small sections of road (crossing Kummer Road). This fun run will be good preparation for those of you running fall marathons and ultra-marathons.

We have awards for the most laps run in 6, 12 and 24 hours. If you don't want to run 6, 12 or 24 hours, you are welcome to come and run whatever distance you would like. From one lap to 24 hours, and everyone is invited to the post run feast.
