On September 19th, PVCA will host their Inaugural 5K Tunnel Trot at the 2021 annual Crickfest celebration in Coburn, Pennsylvania. Runners, walkers, trotters, wanderers, and moseyers alike will navigate the 3.1 mile course alongside the gorgeous Penns Creek. The scenery abounds as Bald Eagles hunt for trout, migrating songbirds harmonize in morning chorus, and if you're really lucky, perhaps even a salamander or wood turtle may cross your path. Beginning at the Coburn Park and the confluence of Elk, Pine, and Penns Creek, the course follows Penns downstream along a relatively flat dirt, gravel, and partially paved road to the historic Coburn Tunnel and back.
Get out and get movin' with this fun opening event for the 2021 Crickfest Community Celebration - a family friendly event- featuring live music, local food trucks and bakeries, watershed education booths and activities, a petting zoo, pony rides, a silent auction, bottle rockets and duck races, and much more. Your 5K registration fee will help the Penns Valley Conservation Association pay for Environmental Education in the Penns Valley Area School District. Local field trips, hands-on experiences, and school gardens all have been provided for the local public school for 20 years without any cost to taxpayers thanks to our fundraising events and sponsorships. Thank YOU for joining in the fun this fall and assisting with continued environmental education for the youth of Penns Valley.
All participants registered before September 13th will receive a commemorative 2021 Tunnel Trot t-shirt.
Event check-in begins at 9:00 AM
Trot starts at 10:00 AM
