DESCRIPTION

At the Mo Fall Marathon and Half Marathon, the vibrant hues of fall foliage merge with the challenge of rugged trails, making it a must-attend event for runners, hikers, and even four-legged friends!

Whether you’re a newcomer looking to build endurance or a seasoned adventurer in search of a new challenge, Mo will deliver!

A lush forest of deciduous and evergreen trees forms a canopy overhead. Ferns, mosses, and woodland plants are woven into a thick carpet below. Numerous streams add to the ecological richness and provide habitats for a variety of wildlife. This maze of natural wonders surrounds you with a sense of seclusion, creating the perfect environment for you to experience Mohican’s trails. Lace up your shoes, leash your pup, and get ready to embrace the colors and challenges that define the Mo Fall Marathon and Half Marathon!

COURSE

The course is a 13.1-mile loop that begins and ends at the historic Mohican Lodge. Along the way, you’ll encounter some of the park’s most famous landmarks, including Lyons Falls, where the rushing waters create a soothing soundtrack for your journey. Your path will also take you across the iconic covered bridge, a symbol of Mohican State Park’s timeless charm. Marathoners will experience over 4000 feet of elevation gain (2000 for the Half).
