Welcome to the first running of the North Ridge Nightmare Trail Race brought to you by North Park Trail Runners. This race takes place in the Halloween season, so we plan on a holiday theme to things.

The race offers 13K as well as 6.66K options. Both races will start at 9:00am.

Packet pickup will begin 1 hour prior to race start.

Race swag will include a race themed "trick or treating" bag as well as a tri-blend (super soft material) race shirt. Shirts and bags are guaranteed to all participants that register by September 1st (we will try to order enough at that time to cover additional registrants, but cannot promise that you will have the stated swag for sure if you wait, so register early).

Proceeds from the race will fund NPTR endeavors, including efforts to support North Park as well as fund other NPTR organized events.


Taking place in mid October, this race looks to offer beautiful Western PA fall foliage views, a mix of flat/fast trail, challenging climbs to test you, some technical single track trails....and, oh, part of the course is haunted. Yes, we have included the "most haunted street in Pittsburgh".

The 13K course will have 3 aid stations approximately every 2 miles of the course. The 6.66K will have 2 aid stations located approximately at mile 2 and mile 3 of the course.

The Venue/Check-In

The Start/Finish of this race will take place at the Spillway/Boat Launch location of North Park. Check-in will begin an hour prior to race start at Beaver Shelter.
