Mountain Railroad Half Marathon

We are excited to announce the second annual Mountain Railroad Half Marathon! The course for this race follows a portion of the H&BT Rail Trail. This trail originally was part of the railroad owned by Huntingdon & Broad Top Mountain Railroad & Coal Company. The railroad was built for the purpose of moving coal to market from the mines in the Broad Top mountain region.

For a more detailed history of both the original railroad and the rail trail, visit Rails to Trails of Bedford County
