“5k course at South Mountain Christian Camp, wide trail with a few sections of gravel road and grass.”— Steve Collins
Featured Race - Oct 26, 2019
Crossing another camp road, the course picks up the longest stretch of continuous trail (and the longest continuous climb) for nearly a mile. This section includes five bridges crossing over a small creek before emerging from the woods at the north end of the property.
From here, the start/finish point is visible, but you're not finished yet. Crossing the camp road again, the course weaves southward once again eventually following a tree line alongside a meadow all the way to the lake, then turns back to the north for the final trail section uphill once again to the finish.
Deer, turkeys, and groundhogs all all spotted regularly.
