About Trail Triple Crown

Run entirely within Delaware’s White Clay Creek State Park and White Clay Preserve, a 3,300-acre park spanning from the Pennsylvania border to the city limits of Newark, the Trail Triple Crown races take place on moderately hilly terrain in the park’s mixed hardwood forest areas, along with streams and upland meadows. Mostly single-track trails, the course also includes sections of dirt roads and only a few hundred feet of pavement for road crossings.

The Triple Crown Trail takes runners on a course that links four trail loops with short out-and-back trail connectors. Come well-trained and prepared.
