About the event
Event Update 2018 - The cost for half-marathoners has increased to the same cost as the marathoners. This is due to the new bus ride for each half-marathoner. We will take each half marathoner to a new starting area via the bus so that they can run the entire trail instead of only half of it.
We are proud to announce the fifth annual Fiery Gizzard Trail Run at Foster Falls State Park. The run is a full course run for the half and an out and back for the marathon. The trail is mostly flat ridgeline running with a few dips into the valley. On the way back all runners will go past the large waterfall by entering climbers’ access one. This will require technical running over large boulders. The capacity for this event will be low due to park guidelines.
Due to access aid stations will be further apart 6~8 miles so be sure to carry your water.

Trail running is dangerous and can lead to injuries or death. If you're willing to take these risks and still be humble then we welcome you. Please note that we do not have a medical staff, but can provide you with basic first-aid once we get to you in the field. In short you're on your own and responsible for your safety.
Is this a full half and marathon distance? Yes it is. We actually think it is slightly over due to the new trail.. More trails for your money!!

How technical is the trail Its not easy but I personally feel like its not too technical. There are a few small sections where you really need to watch your feet but thats about it.
