Join us for the Sixth Annual Indiana First Bank Veteran's Marathon Race Series. The event is an out and back marathon, half marathon, and marathon relay on a rails to trails course. Our course is certified and serves as a Boston Qualifier.
Described by participants as "very well organized", a "fantastic event" in a "stress free pre-race environment", the course is relatively flat and fast, by Western PA standards. Register early at the low, low price of $26.20 to be a part of this great event. (Note the price will increase after July 4th and then again after Labor Day.) As a token of our appreciation, all active duty military personnel and veterans run free (with proof of service and by paper registration only). Hope you can join us in November!
