The annual Jackson River Scenic Trail Marathon, Half, 10k, 5k and 1 mile Fun Run is on one of the most scenic trails in the country. The Jackson River Scenic Trail follows its namesake river, winding its way between Clearwater Park north of Covington and Intervale to the north. The trail follows an old railroad bed of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (Hot Springs Branch) and passes through small communities, cultivated fields, and small patches of woodland along the way. You will often see wildlife from the trail (birds, turtles, raccoons, rabbits, ground hogs, and deer).
The race coincides with the Covington Cork and Pork celebration so great food and entertainment awaits all finishers!
