2020 Chernisky Classic

The 6th Annual Chernisky Classic 5K Run/Walk & 10K Run is a family-friendly event that includes an out-and-back 5K and 10K course on the nationally recognized Ghost Town Trail, recently named the 2020 DCNR Trail of the Year, as well as a free Firecracker Race for kids 8 and under. The event always takes place the Saturday after the fourth of July, making this year's date July 11th. Firetrucks and firefighters will be at the event to greet and interact with kids. 100% of proceeds benefit the Training Facility of the Volunteer Fireman's Association of Cambria County.


Both the 5K and 10K out-and-back courses take place on the Ghost Town Trail, a nationally recognized rail-trail in Cambria County that has been named the 2020 Trail of the Year. 5K participants will pass by a water station at the turnaround point; 10K participants will pass by water station twice. Restrooms are located at the Start/Finish Line at the Young People's Community Center (300 Prave St., Ebensburg, PA 15931).
