The Wissahickon Trail Classic was established in 2006 to highlight the Wissahickon Valley Park as one of the best trail running destinations on the East Coast. Back for its 14th anniversary after a 3 year hiatus, the Wissahickon Trail Classic will engage hundreds of trail runners from the region, providing a unique race experience in Philadelphia’s premier park. Benefiting Friends of the Wissahickon, funds raised through the Trail Classic will go directly back into the stewardship of the Wissahickon trail system and watershed.
