Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon!  
The 3rd annual running of the PA Grand Canyon will be on Saturday July 25, 2015 and Sunday, July 26, 2015 in the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, in beautiful Tioga County, PA.

Due to a PennDOT road construction project, the full marathon will be on a one year hiatus.  The PA Grand Canyon 26.2 will return in 2016.
 In it's place, we will run half marathons on both Saturday and Sunday of race weekend, with an option to run BOTH - the 1/2 & 1/2 Rock the CANYON!  Discounted entry, a bonus ROCK the CANYON medal, and bonus ROCK the CANYON awards!

Events do have a hard cap - registration will close when  cap is reached.  The half marathon sold out in 2014, with over 100 people on a waiting list.

The course takes you along the west rim of the canyon and features some of the most breathtaking views you can imagine.  Half Marathon course has been wheel measured for accuracy and every mile will be marked.  See Course Info page for details on both courses.

Enjoy the hospitality of the beautiful town of Wellsboro, with gas lights lining the streets, historic buildings, and a warm nostalgic atmosphere.  But make no mistake, the races feature all the amenities
of a big city event - chip timing, tech shirts, custom finisher's medal, expo, pasta dinner, goodie bag, on-course support, photographers, music, food, and so much more.  Proceeds are going to the Greenway Project, funding the completion of the rail trail system in Wellsboro.
