The Indian Summer Distance Classic is a 10 mile and 4 mile race held at Lake Macbride State Park. The course winds next to the lakeshore on a soft, limestone trail. The trail is well maintained and there are a few short stretches of asphalt. There’s one significant hill about 1/2 mile from the start which you will ascend right before the finish. The views are beautiful and the times are fast. Join us for this fall classic!
