Note: The ODNR which manages Ohio State Parks has suspended approving special activity permits through May 2021. We remain hopeful that events scheduled after this date will be approved. If the race is cancelled due to inclement weather, trail conditions, or circumstances beyond our control, registrants will be offered a 1 year deferral/race credit toward any WRR event. Entry fees will not be refunded.

NEW DISTANCE and NEW COURSE for 2021!

Are you ready to take on the Salt Fork Fall Challenge? Salt Fork State Park’s hiking and bridle trails will test you with hills and shoe-eating mud! You will be rewarded by a scenic course on the Bigfoot and Summer Sasquatch trails you love, PLUS several miles of trails not included in our other races.

Runners can opt for the Marathon or Half Marathon. Hikers will enjoy aid station support and a generous cutoff time in the Half Marathon.

Salt Fork Lodge offers great rooms at reasonable prices. Enjoy a great meal in the restaurant, relax in the indoor/outdoor pool, and have some fun in the game room and outdoors. Call 740-439-2751 and request the race room block when making your reservation.
