Elizabeth DeNunzio Memorial Trail

Elizabeth DiNunzio

Mount St. Mary's University senior Elizabeth DiNunzio was just weeks away from graduating in 2009 when she was struck and killed by a vehicle while jogging on Old Emmitsburg Road just a few hundred yards from campus. She was finishing her training for the Pittsburgh Marathon, which was to be held that very weekend. Elizabeth was an avid runner who had participated in races throughout the Mid-Atlantic.

In an effort to provide a safe place for students to run, over $130,000 was raised to create the Elizabeth DiNunzio Memorial Trail. The trail is designed to utilize the Mount's bucolic 1,400-acre campus located against the scenic backdrop of the historic Catoctin Mountains. This 2-mile ecologically friendly running path begins at the tennis courts on East campus and loops through natural area on the east campus before returning to the ARCC.
