Cove Valley Travel Plaza on Abandoned Turnpike3005 Pump Station Rd Waterfall, PA 16689
Now in its fourth year, hundreds of athletes have come from all over the US to try out this unique event! Come on out to this great race and run on the old abandoned Pennsylvania Turnpike!
You may remember from the 2009 apocalyptic movie “The Road.” This stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike was bypassed in 1968, leaving 2 tunnels and miles of road untouched by traffic for nearly 50 years! You will get an opportunity to spend 5 miles of your race underground in the old tunnels, so a headlamp or flashlight is required! Trivium has partnered with the Bedford Fulton Joint Recreation Authority and Bedford Fulton Outdoor Education in order to raise funds to develop this abandoned road into a greenway so that runners and bikers can enjoy the route for years to come.
A headlamp or flashlight is required for this event as there are no lights in the tunnels you will run through!
Event details and schedule
In 2020 parking will be available at the start/finish line. If the event grows to over 500 people we will begin adding off site parking with a shuttle.
