Description

The Haunted Half with be a Spooktacular race! It finishes in The River Front Park. Both the course, half marathon and 5K will travel through the scenic Lancaster area countryside along the Susquehanna River.   The races will run entirely on the Northwest Lancaster Rail Trail.   It's a paved surface with fantastic views of the Susquehanna River.  Temperatures should be perfect to go along with the last of fall's colors making this an awesome run!! 


The half marathon will gain 60 feet of elevation in 6.55 miles; the return will lose the 60 feet for a fast finish! 
The 5K is FLAT with only 40 feet of elevation change. This is a great 5K course for a PR!
