A group of dedicated volunteers, in conjunction with the Allegheny Mountains Running CLub, is putting a second ultra marathon on the 2014 club calendar in Emporium, Pa., in Cameron County. The race site is located about 2 hours north of Altoona and 1 1/2 hours north of State College. The trail races will be conducted mostly on Pennsylvania Department of Conservation's Elk State Forest lands trails.
The Sinnemahone Ultra Marathon Trail Run consists of a 50K, 25K and 2-person relay. The course is a single-loop course, starting in downtown Emporium and include much of the Bucktail Path in Elk State Forest.
The name Sinnemahoning means “Stony Lick” in the Lenape language.
