Weather: This is a rain or shine event. In the event or rain, canal towpath may be muddy.

Start: In order to reduce crowding on the Delaware Canal State Park towpath, the race will employ a wave start. Small groups based on seed times will be released over a ten minute period. Please be honest with your seed times. Incorrect times make travel on along the Canal towpath more difficult.

The Course: The course is out-and back along the historic Delaware Canal State Park towpath trail from Washington Crossing Historic Park traveling north- the course will cover the first and last 1.55 miles of the Bucks County Marathon Course.  The first and last 1.25 miles are on paved surface. There will be signs at each mile mark. Built in 1832, the tow path is narrow in some sections, requiring single file travel.

Timing: The race will be timed using ChronoTrack "B" (bib) chips. Results will be posted to the results and photos page within 24 hours of the event.

Awards: Overall awards will be given to top three men and women and top three in age groups by gender. Age groups are subject to change dependent on pre-registration.
