Iron Run Trail Half Marathon

$45 registration fee on or before May 18 at 5:15 pm; $55 after 5 pm on May 18

The Iron Run is a half marathon run (not walk!) with flat and hilly sections and small stream crossings. Most of the course has rocks, roots, logs, and possibly damp muddy areas. This is not a rail-trail run...this is a true TRAIL run! The course showcases beautiful Pine Grove Furnace State Park and the Michaux State Forest. The Iron Run half-marathon course for 2022 is the same as in 2019. The race starts at 7:30 AM. 

Race shirts (high-tech performance fabric) will be reserved only for registrations received by May 18. Shirt sizes must be received by May 18 at 5 PM so we have time to order customized shirts with our logos. We will not have extra shirts for late or same-day registrations.

Timing services will be provided by Bulldog of Chambersburg.
