What form will the Apocalypse take? Will it be Zombie hordes? Nuclear fallout? Alien invasion? Now you can see what the end of the world will look like when you run the End Of The Road Marathon and Half-Marathon. This truly unique race will take place on the famous Abandoned Pennsylvania Turnpike which 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! Trivium has partnered with the Southern Allegheny Conservancy 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.
While our water stops will be dressed up for the apocalypse and the awards will be appropriately themed, the event itself will be the height of modern professionally-managed racing for a half and full marathon on a unique road setting. The original road from the late 1960s is still the surface we will be racing on. This means there are some rough patches and potholes. (inside the tunnels are still in pristine condition!) We have run it at full speed with out any issue. Check out a video of the turpike by drone here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?
We will have a new course video in the early spring!
The most interesting part, is that you will be running THROUGH the hills! The marathon will run 5 miles in the tunnels, and the half marathon will run 3 miles. So running with a light will be required!
The Burn Run 5k & 10k held on Nov 5, 2017 at the East Syracuse Fire Sta #2 which yearly supports burn survivors all across CNY and northern PA thru The Burn Foundation of CNY. A flat fast course with many choosing to do both races. Lots of post race foods, prizes & fun!
