Lehigh Gap Nature Center

More or Less a 10k Trail Run
& More than a 2 mile Scamper

Mission statement:

The purpose of the event is to create a greater awareness in the community of the extraordinary trail system that exists locally and do so in a way that is consistent with the mission of the Nature Center.


Here are the ways we intend to achieve this goal:

1. Limit size of the field to the first 200 entrants to reduce the impact on the trails.
2. 100% paperless online registration through Ultrasignup.com



The 12th running of the Lehigh Gap Nature Center More or Less a 10 K Trail Run and More than a 2 Mile Scamper will take place on Saturday November 11, 2023 at the nationally recognized Lehigh Gap Nature Center in Slatington, Pennsylvania.

We are excited to introduce an entirely new course for this years event. It includes the new link between the D&L trail and the LNE trail created by a local Eagle Scout. We will introduce you to an entirely new stretch of the LNE trail not used in prior events.  The course will take you through the full length of the 3 Ponds trail before ascending back up through the Lehigh Gap Nature Center Arboretum. The last new section of trail we will use is the western terminus of the Chestnut Oak Trail. The back half of the race will appear very similar to those veterans of the race which finishes on a fast technical descent back to the Lehigh Gap Nature Center.



Be advised that sections of the course are technical, rocky and steep. For more detailed course information, please check out the course page which contains a downloadable map and GPS waypoints.

2 mile course-mixed surface with portions of Rails to Trails paths. Includes 2 short steep hills and a single section of single track trail.



Awards will be given to the top overall male and female runner in both the 10K and the 2 mile Scamper.
Awards will be given to the top three male & female finishers in the 10K:
18 and under; 19-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60 & up.
