Don't let the name fool you! While the proceeds benefit the Rails-to-Trails project, 80% of the course is on pavement. This is a completely flat, fast course with a nice & steady half-mile downhill start! Many PR's have been set on this course!
We offer more trophies (nearly 200!) in more divisions (including a Masters division in both the Run and Walk, a unique Dog-Walking Division, a Hand Cyclist/Wheelchair Division and scores of Age Groups) than most 5k's of this size that you will find most anywhere! These unique, beautifully hand-crafted trophies, featuring an authentic railroad spike, were once mentioned in Runner's World magazine and are highly sought-after!
We also have a HUGE smorgasbord of delicious food including several types of pizza, pepperoni rolls, deli-fresh sandwiches, Donley's Delicious Delights homemade cookies, and Jessica's famous pasta salad! If you leave this race hungry, it's your own fault!
We also collect lots of door prizes! With less than 200 participants, your odds of winning a trophy or a door prize are pretty good!
The first 200 registrants receive are guaranteed a Tech shirt. Sizes not guaranteed: 1st come, 1st serve so register early! Shirts can be reordered if registration numbers dictate.
Parents, stick around after the 5k for the Kids Tunnel Fun Run. All kids win a trophy! Kids run in waves, from oldest to youngest and are greeted at the Finish Line by Spike, the Wheeling Nailers Mascot!
