The 11th running of the “Dirty Kiln Trail Races at Canoe Creek State Park” brought to you by Allegheny Trailrunners, Inc. will be Saturday, April 8th, 2023! This years race will be run *BACKWARDS* to previous years. Trail runners will have a choice to run the 10K course up Moore's Hill and around the lake or the half-marathon course around the park a second time but on a more hilly and challenging half-marathon course! Both courses have a lot of variety of trails from wide paths, winding singletrack, stream crossings and mud… lots of mud. more information.
Ironstone 100K is a savage point-to-point 100 kilometer ultramarathon on the Alleghenies wildest trails. Amazing in its terrain and rich in heritage, the ultramarathon starts at Canoe Creek State Park in Blair County and utilizes the Standing Stone, Mid State, and Lower Trails before ending in Greenwood Furnace State Park in Huntingdon County. With its unforgiving technical terrain, it will be one of the most challenging ultras in the region, on par with races like Eastern States 100, Black Forest 100K and Worlds End Ultramarathon. The race begins at 2pm in Canoe Creek State Park and soon travels along the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River on the Lower Trail - a fast and flat section of rail trail. More Info
