Triple Dam 10k
Saturday, February 15, 2020 @ 7:30am
We know mid-winter can be tough, so get out on the trail. Join Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy for the fourth annual Triple Dam 10K or the first-ever Mini-Dam 5K.
The 10K course is an out and back with a 1.3 mile “lollipop” loop 2.6 miles from the start. The course will lead you by not one, not two, but THREE dams! You'll cross the first dam over the Perkiomen Creek, then cross the second dam over Deep Creek and pass by the third dam along “THE HILL.” The beginning and end of the course includes some paved road, black-top path, and approximately 4 miles on packed trail. There is a total 1100’ of elevation change over the race. Most of the gain/loss is up and down one not-so-small hill. There will be two water stations along the course.
The 5K course winds around Deep Creek Lake on the tail-end of the Perkiomen Trail, then dives into the woods for a gnarly romp on the Orange Trail. The course is mostly flat and offers some of the best trail running that Green Lane Park has to offer. This is a course not for the faint of heart!
Amenities include a long-sleeve t-shirt to the first 250 registered runners. Indoor toilet facilities, plenty of parking, time clock at finish, and instant results will all be available. Held rain, sleet, or snow. Proceeds benefit the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy and the Friends of Green Lane Park.
