2021 will be the 7th Annual running of IFTR!

 

The Iron Furnace Trail Run is a 13.1 mile run, and a 4.5 mile fun run, both starting at the same time at the Lake Hope State Park Lodge.  13.1 mile runners will meander along single-track trails taking in the beautiful views and traversing into the rugged Zaleski State Forest.  Along the way runners will be treated with deep gorges, scenic overviews, and rocky outcroppings as they make their way back to where they started.  4.5 mile runners will split off in a different direction from the 13.1 mile runners shortly into the race and run along the shores of Lake Hope before looping around and finishing at the lodge.  Whatever distance you choose, you’ll be sure to run on a great course and have a memorable experience.​

2021 Event Information
We typically open registration for the Iron Furnace Trail Run in October, but at this time we are holding off on opening registration for 2021.  We are continuing to seek information from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) about how they will be issuing permits going forward during the COVID Pandemic.  We hope to host IFTR on April 3 and once we can be confident we can carry through with the event on that day we'll open registration and update everyone through social media, emails, and this website.  If changes are needed to be made we'll announce them in the same fashion.
