Path of the Flood Historic Races 2019

© © Path of the Flood Historic Races

Short review

The Path of the Flood Historic Races allow runners to experience the historic 1889 Johnstown Flood in its entirety with the half marathon, or in small droplets through the 5K or 12K races. The course follows the Path of the Flood Trail and goes through Staple Bend Tunnel, the first railroad tunnel in the U.S. The finish is 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.

Registration is free for youth 17 years of age & under for all three mileage options, thanks to 1889 Foundation. For 2019, due to increased participation, there will be a cap of 500 runners for the Half Marathon and a cap of 500 for the 5K. Register early to avoid missing the race!
