Kreidersville Covered Bridge - Start and Finish
100 Covered Bridge Road
Northampton, Pennsylvania 18067
Event Organizer Website
A beautiful course. Views of the Blue Mountain, 5 creek crossings, 2 historic bridges, and running down a picturesque road bordered by farms and animals grazing in green pastures. Start by running through the historic Kreidersville Covered Bridge and upon your return dash through the KCB one more time to the welcome finish line. The KCBA will provide water and light baked goods and fresh fruit after the finish. Professional timers. Complimentary KCB TShirt or collectible KCB Patch. Prizes.
For those familiar with the 5k the 10k obviously doubles the distance and it also adds another incline (when the 5k turns right the 10k turns left and goes to top of the hill, gradual grade). The hills are predominantly front-end loaded. Please check the elevations map.

Special thanks to our media sponsor RCN. We look forward to a great future together.
