2011 Registration Open


Check out a video from the 2009 run!


The Hocking Hills Indian Run is one of the truly unique running events in the Midwest.

Starting at the Hocking Hills State Park Dining Lodge the trail winds through vast wooded areas of the Hocking Hills State Park and the Hocking State Forest, crossing many small streams, uphill and down. Much of the course is forest trail with some dirt roadway and pavement. The deep gorges, shimmering waterfalls, and lush forests provides the ultimate challenge to your powers of concentration.

For The Runners

All runners must check in with a (human) timer before beginning their race. Start times for some races are recorded manually and not with the chip timing.

Registration for the Indian Run begins at 7:30 a.m. race day (6:30 a.m. for 60k race only). All races meet and finish at the Hocking Hills State Park Dining Lodge, 20160 S.R. 664 S in Hocking County. Showers and refreshments will be available for runners after their races.

Pets are welcome to run the course with you (on a leash of course!). Walkers are also welcome at the Indian Run.


Chip Timing!

Chip timing provides Indian Run racers with accurate and timely race results. Indian Run is proud to continue our partnership with Premier Sports of Columbus, and all races utilize chip timing again in 2011. Premier Sports will determine all winners. All awards will be mailed.
