Description: The Green Lane Park Trail Run is a 5 mile trail race, hosted by Runner's Refuge and sanctioned by USA Track & Field that starts and ends in the Perkiomen Trail parking lot of Green Lane Park. This race is perfect for runners of any caliber, looking for a quality trail race in their own backyard. Since alcoholic beverages are prohibited on park property, the Green Lane Park Trail Run is a family-friendly event that is suitable for all ages. Except for one road crossing at Snyder Road, participants will experience a traffic free looped course along the Orange Trail and roughly a .25 mile stretch of the Perkiomen Trail. Participants will run the 2.5 mile loop twice, with the option to fuel after the first lap. There will be one aid station located in the Perkiomen Trail parking lot. Water and light food will be provided, but participants may also leave their drinks at the aid station to refuel after the first lap. With an elevation gain of 293ft and an elevation loss of 293ft, the difficulty of the course ranges from easy to moderate. Although there are several small climbs on the course, the first .75 miles of the race is gradual uphill, starting at 258ft and culminating at 396ft. The Perkiomen Trail is a popular multiuse trail that is easy in its difficulty and is composed of natural surface. In contrast, the Orange Trail is a 2.5 mile loop natural surface trail that is rated as easy to moderate. The Orange Trai l is located along Green Lane Park’s forested Southwest boundary and connects to the Perkiomen Trail. Both trails are well marked, with the Perkiomen Trail marked by signs and the Orange Trail marked in orange. In hosting a trail race, Runner's Refuge hopes to highlight the benefits of living an active lifestyle and the need to maintain our local trails and parks. All proceeds from the Green Lane Trail Run will benefit the continued maintenance of the trails at Green Lane Park.
