About The Salisbury Viaduct Marathon
The Salisbury Viaduct Marathon, held in Meyersdale, Pennsylvania on 30 September 2023, is a spectacular half marathon that offers participants an unforgettable experience. The race course takes runners across the iconic Salisbury Viaduct – a historic railway bridge that spans the Casselman River valley – and along some of the most stunning scenery Pennsylvania has to offer.
The route of this half marathon is absolutely breathtaking – it begins at Meyersdale’s town square and winds its way through rolling hills and lush fields before crossing over the viaduct itself. From there, runners traverse narrow trails and dirt roads until they reach their final destination: a picturesque lakefront where they can take in panoramic views of rural Pennsylvanian countryside. Along with its scenic beauty, this race also features plenty of challenging climbs throughout its entirety; however, these are more than offset by gorgeous downhill sections as well!
