Races and Course Descriptions
We've revamped all our races for 2020! Course descriptions and maps below are subject to change.
5K TRAIL RACE
3 water crossings, 1 bottled water stop
After the gun goes off, get ready for an exciting start that takes you through our horse pastures and right into the barn. After running through the barn, you’ll arrive at your first water crossing. We hope you planned on getting your shoes wet! Next, you’ll head along the River Dale Trail where you will get a scenic look at the river as it flows through the landscape. Keep your eyes peeled, you might even get to see a bald Eagle or two! At the end of this trail you’ll hit the next two water crossings. To finish you’ll do a nice little climb that heads back up to the Conestoga Wagon Trail. This trail winds behind the camp's Teepee Village which is used by campers all summer long. Finishing up you’ll shoot across two more trails, the Mohican Trail and Justin’s Trail, and through the Fort Roller gates where everyone will be anxiously waiting to cheer for you!
There will be one water stop on the course at the 1.5-mile mark.
10K TRAIL RACE
3 water crossings, 2 bottled water stops, 1 rock scramble
To start your 10k race, you’ll head along the same path as the 5k, hitting the same three water crossings. After the water crossings, you’ll peel off of the 5k course and head up through RVR's paintball fields and down a single track through the Old Alamo Trail. You will hit mile 4 which will bring you out on a gravel road and down to the Townsend House. Here you’ll wind through the woods and up to our historic rock scramble and then onto the highest point in the course. Half a mile from the finish you have a long downhill to the Conestoga Wagon Trail and back up to the Mohican Trail. Finish up by running through the Teepee Village, onto Justin’s Trail and into the Fort Roller gates where the crowds will be going wild and the music will be playing just for you!
NOTE: 10k run is a little more than 6.1. This is to ensure our half marathon runners hit their 13.1 distance. What’s a few more feet going to hurt, am I right?! ;) Water stops will be at the 1.5 and the 4.75 mark.
HALF MARATHON TRAIL RACE
6 water crossings, 5 bottled water stops, 2 rock scrambles
Our half marathon is two loops of the 10k route. Unsure about doing a double loop run? Don’t be! We guarantee you will love this course so much you’ll want to do it again! After finishing up the 10k course at Justin’s Trail, instead of heading through the Fort Roller gates you will hit our Drop Zone. The drop zone is going to make your half experience much more convenient. Want to pick up some extra fuel or water for the race? Leave it in the drop zone ahead of time and pick it up before you head out for your second loop. Don’t want to wear your jacket anymore, drop it and pick it up after the race! Bathroom stop? We got you covered. The drop zone is also a great place for your family and friends to see you and help keep you motivated. The halfway mark will be the perfect place to get recharged. When heading out for your second loop, make sure to keep those eyes open. We are sure you’ll see different things the second time around that you didn’t notice on your first lap!
