Mo Fall Marathon & Half Marathon

Sat, October 7, 2023
Mohican State Park
Trail Marathon & Half Marathon

Part of the Ohio Endurance Series – Hikers Welcome in the Half Marathon!


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! Mohican State Park’s varied landscape promises an unforgettable experience for both new and experienced participants. The harmonious blend of rugged trails, gentle slopes, and occasionally demanding ascents offers a dynamic and diverse course. 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!


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).
