Ironmaster’s Challenge

April 28, 2019 @ 6:30 am - 5:30 pm UTC-4

For 10 years, participants have been enjoying this springtime adventure 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.

STARTING TIME: Individuals timed and recorded for 10 hours from start of earliest event.

  • 50K Ultra: 6:30 AM registration begins at Furnace Stack Pavilion, 7:30 AM start, finish by 5:30 PM
  • 15K Challenge: 8 AM registration begins at Furnace Stack Pavilion, 9 AM start, must finish by 2:30 PM

All proceeds from the race support Central PA Conservancy’s mission to protect natural resources in a 5-county service region through land acquisition, conservation easements, education, and outreach
