The Path of the Flood Historic Races

The 2017 races are set for May 27.

Experience the Path of the historic 1889 Johnstown Flood in its entirety with the half marathon or in small droplets through the 5K or 12K races. Run the Path of the Flood Trail and go through Staple Bend Tunnel, the first railroad tunnel in the U.S. Finish at Peoples Natural Gas Park where you can see the historic Stone Bridge, which still stands after stopping the majority of the flood’s energy. Our hybrid road/rail trail course beckons you to be a part of history once again! This event is hosted by the Johnstown Area Heritage Association and the Cambria County Conservation & Recreation Authority – all proceeds benefit the Cambria County Trails and the heritage of the Johnstown region.
