Overview

The approximate 13-mile figure 8 trail course will start at Greenwood Furnace State Park, traverse Rothrock State Forest to Alan Seeger Natural Area and back to the park. The route will be marked with orange flagging, and volunteers will be stationed at all road crossings. The course features two brutal ascents and descents with some recovery in between. The trails include a stream crossing, 3 footbridge crossings, rock gardens, mud, and some nasty scrambling.

Description

The Greenwood Furnace Trail Challenge is an intense, rugged, singletrack half- marathon. A figure 8 route of rocky climbs and nasty downhills; it starts at Greenwood Furnace State Park, climbs to the fire tower, drops down into Alan Seeger Natural Area before climbing back to the tower, and then returns down to the park.

All proceeds from the race will go towards two charities, one local (Big Brothers Big Sisters of Centre County, PA) and one international (seedzambia.org).
