2018 will be the 11th Annual Susquehanna Warrior Trail 5K Race/Fun Walk. Please join us as we work towards providing our community with a safe, vibrant, attractive riverfront recreational area.  The Susquehanna Warrior Trail (SWT) is an integral part of this vision.  The trail has successfully repurposed a formerly inaccessible natural area on the bed of the former Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad in Luzerne County into a 12 1/2-mile hiking and biking trail along the Susquehanna River.  It now provides hikers, bikers, and cross-country skiers a safe and scenic outlet for healthy exercise much needed to offset our sedentary lifestyles.  SWT has no paid staff and is maintained entirely through the cooperative efforts of volunteers from local businesses, schools, and scout groups, as well as interested individuals.  This trail is truly a community asset and an important component in connecting the developing trail systems in central Pennsylvania to trails that stretch into Philadelphia, inviting other local communities to work with us towards regional success.

Fee: Entry fee: $20.00 by March 18th. $25.00 thereafter.
