Event Description

The 2018 race will be dedicated to Paul Butchko, who along with his brother Joe, founded the Laurel Highlands Trail Race almost four decades ago. Paul's unexpected death this past year was truly a sad day for our trail family. Paul and his extended family have been running and volunteering at the race every year. For those of you that have had the pleasure of meeting Paul, you know he will be sorely missed. 

Each year, proceeds from the race are donated to the Laurel Highlands Trail through the Pennsylavania Parks and Forest Foundation. The money donated goes directly to the trail to provide material and services for maintenance. This past year, our donation was used to upgrade twelve shelters in the overnight areas of the trail. Future donations from the race will be made in Paul Butchko's name as a tribute to Paul's love of the trail.
