Uberendurancesports proudly presents the Philadelphia Trail Marathon and Half Marathon. We believe it will be the most challenging half marathon (and full) in Philadelphia. Evenso the course will be tough, we are still catering to hikers, new trail runners , but also to seasoned pros. We do that by mixing a hard course with a very generous timelimit (9 hours for the full, 8 hours for the half).
This race takes place in Wissahickon Park, a wonderful green oasis within the city limits of Philadelphia. Wonderful course featuring 90% single track trails (for the 13.1, there will be some forbidden drive for the 26.2).
As usual, you can expect top notch organization and a well marked course. The best aidstations around will get you through the race, and Uberhans, America's toughest accordion player (former Temple and Seahawks kicker) will be at the Oktoberfest aid station to entertain you.
We also have great swag, a Philly style finisher medal, 2 professional chefs, Philly food vendors, a Philly craft brewery and a cool band at the post race party.
