Registration Closed Fri. May 7, 2021 @ 12:00 AM

Cancelled Event



Unfortunately we have to cancel the 2021 version of the race, due to a construction project that affects our race course. We will reevaluate our options and work on a new course, and hopefully this race will be back for 2022. All registered runners will receive a full refund.
Uberendurancesports proudly presents the Pennypack Trail Fest. A race catering to hikers, new trail runners and seasoned pros as well. By offering multiple distances to run, there is a race for everyone. This race takes place in Pennypack Park, a wonderful green oasis within the city limits of Philadelphia. This race is modeled after the Dirty German Race in May, but features a brand new course. Over 50% of the course will be new to runners who previously ran the Dirty German.

As usual, you can expect top notch organization and a well marked course. The best aidstations around will get you through the race, and Uberhans, America's toughest accordion player will be at the finish to entertain you. We also have great swag and 2 professional chefs, feeding you at the post race party. This is a great time of the year running this race. The air is typically brisk and the leaves are changing color. What are you waiting for, become a trail runner today.
