Fiery Gizzard Run

SIGN UP HERE – Event Update 2017 – The cost for half-marathoners has increased to the same cost as the marathoners. This is due to the new bus ride for each half-marathoner. We will take each half marathoner to a new starting area via the bus so that they can run the entire trail instead of only half of it. 

We are proud to announce the fourth annual Fiery Gizzard Trail Run at Foster Falls State Park. The run is a full course run for the half and an out and back for the marathon. The trail is mostly flat ridgeline running with a few dips into the valley. On the way back all runners will go past the large waterfall by entering climbers’ access one. This will require technical running over large boulders. The capacity for this event will be low due to park guidelines. 

A portion of proceeds goes back to the park.
