2015 IRON RUN HALF-MARATHON AND CHARCOAL CHALLENGE 5K RUN/WALK
THANK YOU to all participants at our very successful 5th annual fundraiser races. There were 112 runners at the half-marathon start, and 77 runners or walkers at the 5k start. That’s our biggest turnout so far! Thirty-three hard-working volunteers made it all possible.

We appreciate your support of Pine Grove Furnace State Park. We raised (after expenses) more than $4,500. All of that money stays at Pine Grove Furnace State Park for projects such as a new hiking bridge across Mountain Creek between our park’s two lakes.
We hope to see you in June 2016 for the sixth annual races!
