Description: 50K of single and double-track trails, stream crossings, rocky climbs, and peak season of fall leaf colors. There is not too much more you could ask for in the Laurel Highlands of western Pennsylvania. Located on the west slope of Laurel Ridge in Westmoreland County, the 3,593 acre Roaring Run Natural Area features a complete mountain stream protected within its watershed. Most of the area is wooded, with second and third growth forests. There are a few recently abandoned fields, and some old fields which have completely reverted to forest. Roaring Run is formed by numerous springs near the summit of Laurel Ridge. The stream drops 1,220’ in elevation, over a length of 5 miles, before ending at its confluence with Indian Creek in the village of Champion. This looped course will get you on every trail within the park, covering almost 32 Miles with total vertical gain of around 5,500 vertical feet. The Race will begin just after sunrise, at 7:30 am. Exact packet pickup time the day before is TBD, but packets will also be available race morning starting at 6:30. No required gear. No pets. No pacers. Further details and updates will be provided as we get closer to the event.
