Thank you to all who participated in 2022 and earned their finishline celebration! The day was not without some weather challenges, but all got through and experienced a few glorious rays of sunshine! See you next year!
The 2023 Ironmaster’s Challenge will be held in September next year. The date will soon be announced.
Where: Pine Grove Furnace State Park and Michaux State Forest in Gardners, PA
For over 12 years, participants have been enjoying this trail challenge in two separate events, a 50k and 15k, both culminating in a finish-line picnic celebration at the Ironmaster’s Mansion at Pine Grove Furnace State Park, the famed halfway point along the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. We cannot wait to offer another fun and satisfying day — you will experience the same rock scrambles, grueling ascents, ridgeline vistas, spring wildflowers, rushing streams and lakesides, and epic single track trails through Michaux State Forest.
All proceeds from the race support Central PA Conservancy’s mission to acquire, preserve and protect local land and natural resources through land acquisition, conservation easements, and outreach.
