100 mile or 100 kilometer run
The "Pine Creek Challenge" is just that, a place to challenge yourself by seeing how far or how fast you can run. It will be a scenic trail run along Pine Creek in northern Pennsylvania. The Pine Creek Rail Trail stretches 63 miles from Wellsboro Junction to Jersey Shore and is repeatedly listed as one of the finest bike rides in the Northeast.
We have set up an out and back course that uses 50 miles of the upper canyon section. This section is through the "Grand Canyon of the East", the Pine Creek Gorge. The Gorge stretches for 47 miles. It is nearly a mile wide and 1,450 feet deep at its deepest point. This section of Pine Creek is listed as a National Natural Landmark. It's popular with canoeists and rafters in the spring and trout fishermen are drawn here all year long.
I want to thank you for an fantastic event. Though I have done a number of 50 - 56 mile ultras (in scary and challenging locals) this was my first 100 KM.
Thanks for putting on the race last weekend. It has the potential to be a nice fall event.
