The God's Country Marathon is Pennsylvania's second oldest marathon and has been named one of the "best small marathons" and "10 toughest marathons" in the USA by Runners World Magazine! The course begins at the Galeton High School at 1300 feet above sea level. After touring around beautiful Berger Lake in Galeton, runners head west on scenic Route 6 entering the majestic Susquehannock State Forest. Just past the 15 mile mark, you wind up over Denton Hill peaking at 2424 feet above sea level. The challenge of the course is "Conquering the Hill!" After the decline and a few rolling hills, it's all downhill into Coudersport, the county seat of Potter County. The finish line is at the historic Potter County Courthouse Square. Amazing volunteers, breathtaking scenery and heart breaking hills make the God's Country Marathon a one-of-a-kind race. The God's Country Marathon is a USA Track & Field certified course and sanctioned event and is a qualifying race for the Boston Marathon. Get yourself to God's Country and "Conquer the Hill!"
