2009 Dam Half & Dam Fool (Read 645 times)

    The Dam Half is a challenging ½ marathon trail race in Central Pennsylvania. The 13-ish mile course takes runners over single & double track trails with some portions of fire roads. Complete with rocks, mud, downed trees, stumps, roots, woodland creatures, and a small stream crossing, runners will scale challenging ascents with scenic vistas. With over 2000 feet of total elevation gain, the race is sure to leave your legs screaming for mercy. Afterwards, bask in the camaraderie in the pavilion complete with a warm fire and delicious food. This race is open to all levels of athletes who share a common love for the adventurous outdoors. Other namesakes to this outstanding event are the attractive long sleeve t-shirts, awesome top-finisher awards, abundant door prizes, and overflowing goody bags. Don’t miss out! New for 2009 we will be adding a Challenging Trail Marathon yes that's right A MARATHON THAT IS NOTHING BUT TRAILS! http://www.midpenntrailblazers.com/
