Beginning at the Hocking Hills State Park Naturalist Cabin, the Indian Run winds through vast wooded areas of the Hocking Hills State Park and Hocking State Forest, crossing streams, deep gorges, shimmering waterfalls and lush forests, leading uphill and down. The Indian Run is the ultimate challenge to the runnera?Ts power of concentration.
Indian Run Race Times
The 60k run (37.28 miles) steps off at 7 a.m.
The 40k race (24.85 miles) will begin at 8 a.m.
The other races (5k, 10k and 20k) are individual starts between 9 and 11 a.m. Each runner in these races has an individual start and finish time recorded for them; therefore runners can choose to start their race any time within those two hours. 10k and 5k runners catch a bus at the located in the Naturalist Cabin area, to get to their start locations, and should plan to check in at registration 1/2 hour before beginning their races.
All runners must check in with a (human) timer before beginning their race. All runners will be equipped with chip timing devices. Start times for some races are recorded manually and not with the chip timing. Chip timing is used to record all runners' finish times. More information on chip timing below.
Same day registration and check-in for pre-registered runners for the Indian Run both begin at 6:30 a.m. All races meet and finish at the Hocking Hills State Park Naturalist Cabin, 19852 S.R. 664 S in Hocking County. Refreshments will be available for runners after their races.
Pets are welcome to run the course with you (on a leash of course!). Walkers are also welcome at the Indian Run.
