Description

Now in its fifth year, hundreds of athletes have come from all over the US to try out this unique event! You may remember from the 2009 apocalyptic movie "The Road." This stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike was bypassed in 1968, leaving 2 tunnels and miles of road untouched by traffic for nearly 50 years! You will get an opportunity to spend 5 miles of your race underground in the old tunnels, so a headlamp or flashlight is required! Trivium has partnered with the Bedford Fulton Joint Recreation Authority in order to raise funds to develop this abandoned road into a greenway so that runners and bikers can enjoy the route for years to come. Come race the original old turnpike half marathon!

For 2021, we are adding a 4-mile race to the Saturday event AND we will be adding a second half marathon on Sunday to accommodate more athletes without crowding the out-and-back course. Each day of racing will be limited to 500 runners! 

A headlamp or flashlight is required for this event as there are no lights in the tunnels you will run through!
