For over 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 are sorry we could not offer the 50k in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, however, we look forward to offering both events once again in September 2021. You’ll experience the same challenging and rewarding day — the rock scrambles, grueling ascents, ridgeline vistas, wildflowers, rushing streams and lakesides, and epic single track trails through Michaux State Forest.

For those new to the race, the Ironmaster’s Challenge features a 50K Ultra and a 15K Challenge, both of which are open to trail runners and hikers, and feature the beautiful woodlands of Pine Grove Furnace State Park and surrounding Michaux State Forest. Each course is wheel-measured and each event is professionally timed by Pretzel City Sports for instant results. Radio communications, staffed food and water checkpoints, and additional water stations are provided. Every year participants praise the trail course for its challenging features, scenic quality and diversity, and finish-line reception at the charming Ironmaster’s Mansion.

Other benefits included in your registration are a tech t-shirt, a finisher’s premium for the 50K Ultra event, a finishline picnic lunch, and a plentiful supply of local beer provided by our beverage sponsor, Molly Pitcher Brewing Company (Carlisle, PA). Each participant will be provided with instructions, trail maps, check point locations, and water/aid stations.

The Ironmaster’s Challenge is organized as a fundraiser by Central Pennsylvania Conservancy (CPC), the nonprofit land trust for the surrounding five county-region. All proceeds from the race support CPC’s mission to acquire, preserve and protect important natural areas in our region through land acquisition, conservation easements, and outreach. Many of CPC’s projects seek to protect regional trail resources for public access, recreational use, and permanent protection of the surrounding scenic landscapes.

Regardless of which event you choose, you will have fun. Sunshine, fresh air, and forested trails beckon you to join us … besides, you’ll be supporting a great cause! We hope to see you on the trail. Please contact us anytime with questions you may have.

Please NO pets and NO smoking.

Please join us for a bird walk through farmland, into a forested area, and along a stream on Saturday, June 26 at 7:30 AM.
We will be meeting at the home of Cynthia and David Salisbury – 320 Scott Road, Gettysburg.
Directions to their home are as follows:
From Gettysburg, take 116W, turn left on Knorr Rd (just past Weikert’s egg farm). Knorr Road changes to Scott Road at a sharp bend. Their farm is the second home on the right after that bend. Someone will be at the end of the driveway to give parking directions upon your arrival.
Hiking boots are recommended and bug repellent might be needed.

SMAS member, Bonnie Portzline, will present a new slideshow of her best photos of birds in and around Gettysburg National Military Park. There also will be a few “Name that Bird!” challenges as she tells backstories to the photographic drama, behaviors, beauty, problem-solving and lighter moments she has witnessed with her camera as birds go about their lives on land hallowed by the ultimate sacrifice. Since the 2013 sesquicentennial of the battle, she has given more than 50 slideshows of her ongoing photography project, “Birds With A Gettysburg Address.” She continues research on her thesis that the birds of Gettysburg provide another historical lens for greater understanding of the story of this most famous little town.

The parking area is located off of Long Lane behind the Gettysburg Hospital.

We will have light refreshments beginning at 6:30 pm, followed by a very brief business meeting. Presentation to start at 7:10 pm. This meeting is free and open to the public.
