About This Activity

The Black Moshannon Monster Hunt is an adventure scavenger race that will be held at Black Moshannon State Park.  You will go to a station, complete an activity, and get a clue to continue to the next station.  The race course will not be revealed in advance.  You must figure out which trail to take from the clues.  Each station will include a Holloween theme to help you with the clues.  Participants will get wet and muddy!  Awards will be given to the first and second place in the 5K run.  There is also an award for best costume of the day and group costume.

5 K Run Or Hike

This is a 5 K course that includes some roadways, but mostly trails.   Participants will have a kayak or archery activity (equipment provided).  An obstacle course with a mud pit will need to be overcome before ending the race at the slip and slide.

Early registration is $20.  T-shirts are guaranteed if signed up at least two weeks before the event.  Race Day check in is from 11 am to 12:30 pm at the beach area.  The race begins at 1:00 pm.   A bake/craft sale will be held from 12:00 pm until race finish at the Environmental Learning Center area.   No refunds will be given.

The Black Moshannon Monster Hunt Race is held in memory of Mike McCloskey who was a dedicated park volunteer and outsdoorsman.  He lost a long, hard fought battle to chronic lymphocytic leukemia in January 2013 at 41 years old.     The proceeds from each year's race is donated to local family in need due to a medical condition.   The 5th Annual Black Moshannon Monster Hunt Race is to benefit  Leslie Mersinger.   Leslie was diagnosed with colon cancer and  is currently  undergoing chemotherapy.  She is a single mother of three boys.
