FULL EVENT DETAILS
Tecumseh Trail Challenge Marathon, and later-added 50k, became famous for its point-to-point, epic route through the hills and hollers of Brown County, Indiana.
DINO and Indiana Trail Running are committed to providing another excellent experience in the 21st running of this fall classic trail run race! We have been hard at work with the true to its name "Tecumseh Trail Challenge" redesigning the race around the railroad closure to provide a more nostalgic course we know runners will be excited about this year! Come run with us through the demanding, challenging, yet beautifully rewarding terrain during the autumn colors this fall as we create something special together! The event has evolved into a festival-type atmosphere with the energy of Indiana Trail Running Association as an event partner.
50k, Marathon, & Half Marathoners receive medals, awards & meal with entry. 8 miler fun run will not receive awards or medals; finish food included. The popular sweatshirts are an optional item this year (just $10). Must register by 10/9/23 for sweatshirt.
