Two Days. Two Full Marathons. Two Half-Marathons. Two 10k’s. Two 5k’s.

More than just a Race...



In order to keep athlete health and safety as our top priority, we must reschedule the events. The Two Rivers Race Festival events, scheduled for March 28th and 29th, are postponed. 

Today, the Pennsylvania Governor stated that he is instituting social distancing programs (he suggests staying at least 6 feet from another person) and he discourages gatherings of more than 250 people. 

Once we understand the extent of this virus and have a realistic timetable when we can reschedule the event, you will be the first to know of the new date. I am looking at Sept. 19-20, of course pending a safe environment to race.

You will have these options:

  • Race in another of our 2020 events: Promised Land Trail Challenge and/or the Siesta Key Triathlon. We have been doing a second marathon in September but we don’t have firm plans for it yet as of today.

  • Race in the rescheduled Two Rivers Marathon events

  • I realize these options may not be optimal for all athletes. I’m perfectly fine with discussing other options with you on an individual basis. 

  • Please give me some time before we start those discussions.

As of today, the priority is our health. We don’t know how long this virus will last and what effects it may have. The proper decision on rescheduling will be made when those items are known. I would estimate that we won’t know for 60-90 days. If it’s less than that, so much the better.

I will be in touch with you soon. I wanted to be the first to know of this change in the events. Contact me: 570.470.4922 | email

Thank you.

MARCH 28 & 29, 2020 | 9 AM, HAWLEY, PA  


RACE START TIMES | Marathon & Half Marathon - 9 AM | 10k & 5k - 10 AM 



We have the best new sponsor ever. Zulu Audio is supplying Alpha Series Wearable Bluetooth Speakers to any athlete to runs the marathon or the half marathon! These are VERY high quality with4.5 star rating on amazon out of 5 stars

  • This may never have been offered to every marathon and half marathon finisher at a race. We do it BECAUSE WE LOVE THE ATHLETES.
  • Any athlete who is registered now for the marathon or the half will get these.
  • Any athlete who registers for the half or full by March 15 will get these.
  • These are maybe the coolest items you'll ever receive at an event!



We are now in the top 25 of Boston Qualifier times of all marathons in the USA. 


A big reason for the growth has been the oversized, HUMONGO finisher’s  medals, the unique apparel, a beautiful course, the best schwagg, and  the post race food.

All finishers will receive:

  • Conqueror Medals (5.5 inches — BIG!)
  • Hawaiian lei 
  • Catered hot lunch
  • Beautiful shirt

Extra schwagg to the Double 2-day racers:

  • I Did the Double shirt
  • Jackets to athletes who race both days

Runners who qualify for the Boston marathon:

  • I Qualified for the Boston Marathon shirt


We started this festival in 2017 and we’re going to keep it going! We had our most successful events ever, with more than 700+ registered athletes. There is a hill or two early in the race but the 600 feet of net elevation loss and generally flat last 16 miles of the marathon make it fast, fun, and friendly.

Our goal is to be the most athlete friendly event in the country. 

The Lackawaxen Volunteer Fire Department will be the beneficiary of this event. They do a great job (responding to more than 200 calls a year) and they are great citizens of the community.
