About the Race
This race is in memory of Damon Young, who passed away from kidney cancer in 2006 at 24 years old. He loved nature and spent countless hours exploring the land where he grew up. He hoped to have a yearly race in his memory to raise money for a scholarship fund that would benefit Tunkhannock High School graduating seniors. We're so excited to be hosting this race on the land Damon loved so much!
Start and finish will be at the Young Family property in Centermoreland. The race starts on a downhill, continuing on a dirt road with small rolling hills. There is a rocky ½ mile hill climb on a 3-season township road to a turnaround. The 5k Walk and Run return to the start/finish. The 10K leaves the road with a left turn onto mowed fields following the edge of the Young property. It continues back onto the road before entering the woods for some winding, hilly trail running. Upon exiting the woods, racers return to the start/finish on the dirt road.
Pre-registration ends June 17, 2021. Race-day registration will be from 7:00-8:30 AM the morning of the race. Please make checks payable to “Damon S. Young Memorial Scholarship.”
