Run the Kokosing Gap Trail this Earth Day
Sunday, April 12, 2011

Kokosing Gap TrailExperience the beauty of the Kokosing Gap Trail with hundreds of other runners during the Earth Day Challenge Marathon and Half Marathon. The race starts on the Kenyon’s College’s clandestine campus, then continues onto the trail itself. The Kokosing Gap Trail is a 14-milelong paved recreational trail built on the former Pennsylvania Railroad that lies just south of the campus, just across the Kokosing River.

Keep your heart pumping and your eyes open as you run over bridges, past trees, and under tunnels. This route is all about you versus yourself, with as little outside distractions as possible. The Kokosing Gap Trail provides perfect even-terrain, with very few climbs or dips on a well-maintained path. The course continues along the trail all the way back to the Kenyon campus, up a scenic hilltop, and a left on Duff Road, where runners head north and then back up to the Kenyon Athletic Center for the finish. There’s no better way to celebrate the planet then with a soul-defining run on the gorgeous Kokosing Gap Trail.
