A 5K and 10K run on the trails of the Salamonie State Forest.

We congratulate ACRES Land Trust on the action of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources in December of 2014 to officially dedicate Kokiwanee as a statutory nature Preserve. One of the protective restrictions as a nature preserve means that it is limited for recreational purposes. So, starting in 2015, the Waterfall Trail Runs will shift to the trails of the Salamonie State Forest on the south side of the Salamonie River. And, yes, you will encounter the waterfalls of the State Forest. We appreciate ACRES Land Trust and their protection of the bluffs of the Salamonie contained in Kokiwanee. Part of your entry will go toward ACRES Land Trust.

The start and finish are at the pavilion on 600E at the Tailwaters of the Salamonie Dam near the confluence with the Wabash River. There will be a cookout after the race on the pavilion grill.

This beautiful natural area is near the point where the Salamonie River joins the Wabash River.

There will be ‘morning-of’ registration at the Tailwaters Pavilion. We are now taking credit cards for ‘day-of’ registration. You may pay ‘day-of’ by credit card, cash or check. If you have the Square ‘Wallet’ – you may pay by your Square smartphone app.

I just wanted to say Thanks! again for all your work on the run yesterday.  This was my first trail run and was a great experience all around.  The event and camaraderie made for a terrific Sunday morning.
