Activities: Other 200 Yards

Don't let the name fool you! While the proceeds benefit the Rails-to-Trails project, 80% of the course is on pavement. This is a completely flat, fast course with a nice & steady half-mile downhill start! Many PR's have been set on this course!

We offer more trophies (nearly 200!) in more divisions (including a Masters division in both the Run and Walk, a unique Dog-Walking Division, and scores of Age Groups) than most 5k's of this size that you will find anywhere! These unique, beautifully hand-crafted trophies, featuring an authentic railroad spike, were once mentioned in Runner's World magazine and are highly sought-after!

We also have a HUGE smorgasbord of delicious food including several types of pizza, pepperoni rolls, deli-fresh sandwiches, Donley's Delicious Delights homemade cookies, muffins, & candies, and Jessica's famous pasta salad! If you leave this race hungry, it's your own fault!

We also collect lots of door prizes! With only 300 participants, your odds of winning a trophy or a door prize are pretty good!

The first 300 registrants receive are guaranteed a Tech shirt. Sizes not guaranteed: 1st come, 1st serve so register early! Shirts can be reordered if registration numbers dictate.

Parents, stick around after the 5k for the Kids Tunnel Fun Run. All kids win a trophy! Kids run in waves, from oldest to ypungest and are greeted at the Finish Line by Spike, the Wheeling Nailers Mascot!
