A unique marathon event in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania!
Marathon on the Mountain will both challenge and inspire you while you run through the beautiful mountain terrain at Seven Springs Mountain Resort on Saturday, October 28, 2017.
Choose the marathon, half marathon or 5k to get the distance that is right for you. The race will take you past multiple ponds, along charming country lanes and through some of the most scenic woods in Pennsylvania. The courses utilize both ski trails and wooded hiking and biking paths that will take you deep into the forest. Minimal hard surfaces and very few road crossings are on the course, and multiple aid stations with water, Gatorade, and fruit will be featured.
The marathon will make two laps of the picturesque course that starts and ends in front of the Foggy Goggle at Seven Springs Mountain Resort.
