Description

For 18 years the Wyoming Valley Striders 20K Classic held in Wilkes-Barre was considered the area’s premier long distance road race. In 1993, the Striders board was forced to cancel the race due to traffic control issues. On September 13, 2014, the Striders resurrected this historic race on the beautiful D&L Trail, located in Lehigh Gorge State Park, in White Haven PA.

The course runs along the D&L Trail, is wheel measured and marked, has a rolled cinder surface, and is an out and back configuration with a slight decline on the way out and a slight incline on the way back. There will be water stops on the course.

Special trophies will be presented to the top male and female finishers and medals will be awarded to at least the top 3 in each age group.
