The race starts at 8:00 AM Central Time for the 50K and 9:00 AM Central Time for the Half Marathon, providing runners with cooler temperatures and a shaded run course throughout the picturesque park. Participants will have the unique opportunity to witness the highest free-falling waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains, adding to the allure of this event.

The route for the Half Marathon has been adjusted to ensure a seamless experience, starting at the Betty Dunn Nature Center parking lot and following the Paw Paw trail before looping back to finish at the pavilion. For the 50K participants, after completing the first loop, an additional loop and a marked 4.8-mile out and back section await before heading back to the finish line.

After crossing the finish line, runners can look forward to a post-race meal and music to celebrate their accomplishments. The event also offers a block of rooms at the Lodge at Fall Creek Falls for participants, providing convenience and ensuring a comfortable stay.

Not only will runners be rewarded with memorable experiences and stunning natural landscapes, but they will also receive a packet including a long-sleeve shirt and other swag. Additionally, participants will have the chance to earn award mugs, certificates, and enjoy hot food upon finishing.
