About This Activity

Join us for the third annual Broken Boulder Trail Race. Just like last year this is a free race. A chance for us to show our thanks to our running community.

The Broken Boulder Trail Race is an amazing tour of the beautiful Ferne Clyffe State Park! This tough but runnable course will highlight all of the great sights within the park: High lookout points, creek crossings and even a natural land bridge. The trail will consist of some technical single track along with some wide fire roads. With over 1400’ of climbing this ain’t your dad’s turkey trot. 

The first and last 1/2 mile of the race will be on the road. The rest of the race will be trail. Great caution is advised as there are very dangerous ares within the park so be alert and stay on the trail. This race is a cup less race. Meaning you will be required to bring your own device to carry hydration with you; e.g. hydration vest, handheld bottle, plastic bag, or the last minute water bottle you got at the gas station duct taped to your hand. There will be 3 aid stations on the course. Aid Station One is at mile 2.75. This one will be passed again at 3.5. Aid Station 2 is 4.75 miles at the top of The Boyscout Trail. Aid Station 3 will be around mile 6. After this aid station you head off to a more remote section of the park. Again, be careful and stay on the trail.
