Lehigh Gap Nature Center

More or Less a 10k Trail Run

and 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 Active.com.
3. Water bottles with wrist straps instead of water stops.

Course:
The Ninth annual Lehigh Gap Nature Center More or Less a 10K Trail Run is returning to the top of the gap in 2019.

The Alp d'Huez mountain top finish includes a 1,000 vertical foot climb in the last mile of the event. By far one of the most difficult and rewarding finishes in trail running.

Two of the course director’s favorite sections of the trail system are featured in this year’s course. They are a spectacular view of the Lehigh River on the Chestnut Oak Trail and the western end of the Prairie Grass trail.

The technical course features a variety of terrains from rails to trails, single track and open fields with beautiful views of the Lehigh River and the North face of the Blue Mountain. Be sure to check out the course map at www.lgnc10k.com.

The 2.3 mile Scamper has terrain suitable for family members of all ages and ability levels and still includes the short but challenging Bobolink Trail.

All proceeds from the event help to support the nationally recognized 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.
