8th Annual Susquehanna Super Hike and Ultra Trail Run (25K/ 50K event)

September 10 - September 10, 2016

The Susquehanna Super Hike & Ultra Trail Run is a trail challenge event for adventurous trail runners and hikers on the wild river hills of the lower Susquehanna Gorge.

This daunting trail challenge event on the Mason Dixon and Conestoga Trails alternates breathtaking vistas with steep descents into dark, scenic hollows followed by strenuous climbs to the next vista. Prepare yourself for the steep hills, rocky terrain and deep ravines of the Susquehanna Super Hike, an arduous, undulating and challenging course.

Although the Susquehanna Super Hike is a supremely challenging timed event, the challenge is not to “win” or “come in first,” but to complete the hike in 12 hours or less. For many participants, the Susquehanna Super Hike and Ultra Trail Run is the ultimate test of physical fitness and mental toughness. “Winning” is the personal satisfaction that comes with finishing the course in the allotted time.

Just a few of the highlights of the 2015 course included Wind Cave, House Rock Vista, Tucquan Creek, the Pinnacle Overlook, Kelly’s Run, crossing the Susquehanna River on the Norman Wood Bridge, historic Lock 12, and Oakland Run. Participants of the longer cours enjoyed the scenic Urey Overlook and Otter Creek.
