Oktober Lauf Fest Half Marathon
Oktober Lauf Fest Half Marathon: race description
Along the Pennypack Creek within the limits of Pennypack park. Course is basically a Lollipop course (weather permitting, if it rains too much the week before the race, it will be an out and back only). About 11 miles on a paved bike path and 2 miles on trail (mostly crushed cinder, very runnable). No traffic at all. It's actually pretty cool , that you run miles and miles within the city limits of Philadelphia without seeing a house or a car at all. First 3 and last 3 feature a couple minor hills (steep but short). Beautiful course along the Pennypack creek. No traffic, no cars, just trees, nature and views of the creek.
