Route information
The Eagle Creek course is mostly single track through forested park around Eagle Creek Reservoir. About 90% of the course is extremely runnable, but there are a few sections with steep, but short hills with lots of roots. It allows you to open up your stride on the flat sections, yet has just enough technical sections to make it interesting.
There will be a little bit of everything…but mostly single track through the woods going over roots and branches. There is a grassy open section, and there is spot you will cross over a road and run on pavement for a short distance.
The out and back course is 13.1 miles in length, Half Marathoners will run this once and Full course racers will complete the course twice.
All events start and finish at Eagles Crest following the trails to the south, crosses the causeway on 56th Street (street will be closed) and then north into the trail system on the east side of the park.
The Quarter Marathon distance does not cross 56th street, this distance will turn around at the “Big Bear” before the road crossing.
What's included
  • An unforgettable experience running the “Best Urban Based Trail Marathon” in the country (Trail Runner Magazine, 2011)
  • Choose either the super soft v-neck unisex race tee in heather dark gray or the women’s triblend racerback tank in heather aubergine (or save some money and elect the “no shirt” option).
  • Celebrate the 10th anniversary of this amazing trail run with the HUGE 7″ stone engraved finisher medal representing Hoosier limestone.
  • Free to download, professional, high-resolution, race photos. If you know us, we’ll have hundreds to choose from.
  • Post-race snacks and beverages… including our famous snow cones!
  • A self gratifying sense of accomplishment that you conquered an event that only a small number of people get to do each year (remember the field is limited and this event will sell out!)
