A short history of Trans Continental footraces

For a while I wanted to publish a pdf about the history of all of the Trans Continental footraces. I am still waiting for some more photos. Here is the first version of it.

2019 RUN FOR THE RED ANNOUNCEMENTS
Registration Opens December 1st
Okay runners, here’s the deal: we don’t want to open registration for 2019 until we have a finalized, BQ certified course for you. It’s in the works to get certified in November, so we are pushing the opening of registration back until December 1. What we can tell you is the Marathon and Half Marathon will start at Northampton Community College – Monroe Campus in Tannersville and finish on the stadium track at Stroudsburg High School. Mountain View Vineyard, Winery, & Brewery will host the halfway point. Course information and certification details will be posted once certification is complete. Stay tuned for more updates!

FROM PRETZEL CITY SPORTS:

12/09 – SHIVER BY THE RIVER 5K & 10K WINTER SERIES – Race # 1: the 29th annual version of this race series comes back with a bang; the starting time has been moved up to 10 am and a new course with less traffic is probable. You can ONLY register for the entries series in advance and there are big savings if you do, versus signing up for the individual races. This Pagoda Pacers event has indoor registration and grub. While they give a VERY limited number of awards per race (LOADS of awards at the end for those that run 3 races or more), they have outstanding post-race grub and it’s one of the best organized events around. A meeting place and great competition for all regional runners who are not wusies afraid to run in the cold.
