GREAT STUFF

Here's some examples of the great stuff from our 2021 races. Finisher's Medal, jackets and so much more. the 2022 medal will be interlocking with the second day medal.

 

One fun thing we do is to have 4 races on May 21: a marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5k. We run these races on both Saturday and Sunday.

COURSE INFORMATION

The event location is at the D&H Trailhead, Commerce Blvd., Forest City PA 18421. Google maps info is here:

The D&H Rail Trail is basically a flat course. The half marathon is an out and back loop. The marathon is two out and back loops.

Here's the mapmyrun course map (it shows one loop for the half marathon):

https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/4064884396

The trail is hard packed. Over 99% of the course is on the trail.

MAP MY RUN

You can see on the mapmyrun link course elevation. The course starts at 1474'. The turnaround point is at 1727'. Over 6.55 miles, you'll climb 253'. That is less than a 1% per mile climbing gradient. You lose 253' going back to the start, descending less than 1% per mile on the return.

It's a former railroad line so the course has to be nearly flat for rail cars to transit it.

  • the marathon will be on a certified course. The course is currently being measured. We have to wait for enough snow to melt on the trail to complete the bike measurement portion of the certification process. I guarantee it will be a certified marathon and half marathon course. The marathon will be a Boston Qualifier.
  • Aid stations: There will be three on the course, which means you'll have 6 aid stations per loop (13.1 miles). The aid stations will be self-serve, with sealed small water and gatorade bottles. There will be plenty of garbage cans on the course.
  • Athletes are responsible for putting used water, gatorade, bananas, gels, or similar items in the garbage cans. The township has requested a zero garbage on the ground policy for health reasons. There will be garbage cans 50 yards on each side of the aid station, as well as a garbage can placed halfway to the next aid station.
  • Portapotties are located at the race start area and at each aid station.

RACE LOGISTICS

  • We'll have an open start line for the marathon and half marathon. You can start anytime between 0745 and 0900. If you'd like to start before 0745, just let me know and I'll get you off and running!
  • The marathon will have a 6 hour time limit. Please start early if you think you may exceed the 2:30pm course closure. We'll have the finish arch up for you and have your finisher's medal ready for you!
  • We will have post race food.
  • If you post a Boston Qualifying time in the marathon, you'll receive an "I Qualified for Boston At the Two Rivers Marathon" shirt.

ATHLETE SATISFACTION

Endless Mountains will have the same commitment to Athlete Satisfaction as all of our other events. You'll be part of an organized, fun event with great shirts, finisher's medals, on course aid stations, and awards. We do it BECAUSE WE LOVE THE ATHLETES!
