September 09, 2017 (Saturday) The race has already taken place. # 9


The KTA Trail Challenge is an event for adventurous trail runners and hikers on the wild river hills of the lower Susquehanna Gorge. This daunting trail challenge event on the Conestoga Trail and State Park trails and the Mason-Dixon Trail System, alternates breathtaking vistas with steep descents into dark, scenic hollows followed by strenuous climbs to the next vista. Prepare yourself for the steep hills, rocky terrain and deep ravines of the KTA Trail Challenge, an arduous, undulating and demanding course. Although the KTA Trail Challenge is a timed event, the challenge is not to "win" or "come in first," but to complete the hike in 12 hours or less (10 hours for the 25k). For many participants, the KTA Trail Challenge 50k is the ultimate test of physical fitness and mental toughness. "Winning" is the personal satisfaction that comes with finishing the course in the allotted time. Just a few of the highlights of the 2016 50k course include Wind Cave, House Rock Vista, Tucquan Creek, the Pinnacle Overlook, Kelly's Run, crossing the Susquehanna River on the Norman Wood Bridge, then together with the 25k course, historic Lock 12 and Oakland Run. Participants of the 50k enjoy scenic Urey Overlook and Otter Creek. The 25k course includes the beautiful Overlook Trail, Wisslers Run, and a sweeping view of the unique Muddy Run Power Reservoir. Everyone who reaches the finish line earns a beautiful, carved wooden medallion. All participants receive a tech t-shirt at the Finish Line. If you would like a certificate with your finishing time, please request that one be mailed to you, after the event.
