The trail course is mostly gravel and dirt roads. A true Adirondack experience. Fall foliage is estimated to be about 15%-25% peak. New in 2019, a 10K race event has been added on Friday, the evening before the big event. Do the 10K as a solo event or BE THE LOON- run the 10K Friday and then the half or full marathon on Saturday for the 2-Day Loon Challenge for a great sense of accomplishment and of course some extra LOONY SWAG! A portion of the race proceeds will benefit Old Forge HS Key Club and other local area benefactors. Visit their facebook page for additional information https://www.facebook.com/OldForgeMarathon.
