Welcome to Pisgah Runners, home of the Chief Wetona Challenge! Please use this link to register for the 2017 CWC.

Race details: Race Day – May 21, 2017.  The 14 miler will start at 9:30 am and the 7 miler will start at 10:30 am. Starting area is near the Poolside Pavilion at Mt. Pisgah State Park.  The 7 mile course stays in the state park and hasn’t changed from years past. The long course is still being worked on, mostly because single track was added to the County Park and we’re working on how to best showcase the parks and elevation.

Both CWC distances, the 7 and 14, will be part of both the Central Pa Trophy Series and the National Trophy Runner Trail Series again this year.

All registrants will receive a blanket and some other goodies at packet pick up.  All families are invited to eat again this year at no charge. Come out, support your family and friends, and enjoy the day – hopefully the weather will be better this year! 🙂

Mt. Pisgah State Park is located at 28 Entrance Road, Troy Pa.

In the meantime, check out the Facebook page, which is where current conversations, photos of the blanket, etc are!


After all of the numbers have been crunched, the CWC will be donating $3200 to the backpack programs!!! Thank you all so very much for your help and generosity! ...

wanted to add my voice (in silent fb form--you're welcome 🙂 to the thanks for this race. sooooo glad we made the trip up to visit john and amey in their native habitat! such an amazing variety of scenery and surfaces (the mud was the /perfect/ consistency) and all the runnable terrain (aka ALL THE LACTIC ACID). and i had the honor of a several mile long personal tour by johnny j himself (the highlight being the "Amey's birch trees" section 🙂 And also the inspiration of watching john cross the finish line and then immediately turn around and start encouraging and cheering and congratulating everyone else. By name! (b/c, of course, john boy knows no strangers...:) and then all the volunteers everywhere (i hear you lori kingsley--LOUD AND CLEAR!), and the CHIEF, and adam russell and crew with their goldilocks perfect gatorade mix, and the gourmet egg scramblers and bacon and sausage friers and pancake flippers slaving away to feed the hungry trail hordes, and then tania's BEST CUPCAKES I'VE EVER HAD OR WILL HAVE IN MY WHOLE LIFE (and i've had more than a few....), and the whole crazy wonderful trail community who knows that the best way to celebrate life is to get out there and soak it up into every fiber of your being! (and then try to rinse it out of your shoes afterward for like 20 minutes before realizing the water is never, ever, going to run clear...:) ...

Does anyone have details (distance and elevation) of last year's Chief Wetona Challenge for the 14 mile event that you can post? Those of you with those fancy watches seem to have that information at your fingertips 🙂 Thanks. ...
