Join us and take part in an event meant to showcase the Great Guernsey Trail and will consist of a Half-Marathon, a 10k, a 5k and a Fun Run. This will be a bibbed timed race with timing services provided by Muskingum Multi-Sports.

Proceeds raised at this event will support the Guernsey County Community Development’s (CDC) Great Guernsey Trail and Coal Ridge Park & Trails Development Projects. The CDC built and maintains the 7 mile paved Great Guernsey Trail as well as Coal Ridge Park & Trails. There are plans in the works to add over 7 miles of hiking and walking trails on property owned and maintained by the CDC. All trails and parks are opened to the public and are free of charge. Funding for the maintenance of the trails and the parks is by donations only.
