About Knobstone Trail Run

Join us for our annual Knobstone fall trail run/walk!

We offer 5 K, 10 K, 10 mile, and 13.1 mile courses that wind through the mature, hilly, and shaded woods of Morgan-Monroe State Forest.

Get ready for a rugged trail race with plenty of steep hills, long flat stretches and long ascents broken by switchbacks at the Knobstone Trail Mini Marathon, 10K & 5K, which takes place as the fall leaves are turning every fall in the Morgan-Monroe State Forest about 35 miles south of Indianapolis.

You’ll definitely want to be prepared to run in a trail environment and have the proper footwear (e.g., trail shoes) at this race, but if you’re up for the challenge the view is reportedly spectacular from the ridges and hills along the wooded forest trails.

The courses follow forest trails, and have long, mostly level stretches with some steep hills, which are tempered by switchbacks. Trails are flagged at frequent intervals with bright ribbon, and are cleared before the race to ensure they are mostly free of natural debris.
