The Kettletown State Park event is one of our favorites. It is a T2T series flagship event. The parks terrain is demanding, physically and visibly stimulating, that will leave you feeling accomplished and proud no mater what distance you complete.
Training and preparing for this event should not be taken lightly. Many have underestimated its challenge, however, you do not need to shy away if unsure about signing up. Their are several distances to choose from where the cutoff is generous for the lower distances. It is a good hike for the beginner but intense for the seasoned trail runner. Choose your distance wisely; One that will push and will challenge your mind, body and soul.
Don’t forget your fans!! The Park is great for families and friends. They are awarded with the picturesque views of the beach where the Start/Finish is staged; an easy place cheer you on as you complete your loop(s).
