Like to run? Love nature? Why not participate in this year's Rock 'n the Knob races? On today's show, Allegheny Trailrunners member Ben Mazur talks about this year's event and how you can get involved.
Ben says runners will start from the Clubhouse at the Blue Knob All Seasons Resort. Then, they'll then conquer the ski slopes as they enjoy beautiful scenery along the route. There are two races: a 5 mile run and a 30K.
The 30K racers will split from the 5 mile route, linking with the Lost Turkey Trail to begin their assault on the State Park side of the mountain. The 30K runners zigzag up and down the mountain accumulating over 9,700 ft. of elevation change! This race will be the most challenging in the area, putting even the most hardened trail runner to the test.
