Event summary

The 10th Annual Eagle Creek Trail MarathonThe Eagle Creek Trail Marathon remains #1 for urban based trail marathons across the USA. Offering the quarter, half and full marathon distances, this race is one you won’t want to miss!

How to enter

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.

Route description
Route description

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.
