Course (subject to change due to construction)

 

Estimated 51.8 miles = two 25.9 mile loops, mostly on the towpath.

 

There are two bridge crossings.  Centre Bridge from PA to Stockton, NJ.  Frenchtown Bridge back to PA.

 

Teams must switch runners at these below approved exchanges only at legal stops/parking spots.  Runners can run multiple legs in a row per team strategy.

 

There is no parking or stopping on NJ Route 29 shoulders or on PA Route 32 other than legal lots/spots.  We have permits to use the route, and we must follow both state laws. 

 

It’s highly-recommended that at least the team captain drives the course once.  

 

Teams are responsible for their own running and support supplies.
