The Start is adjacent to the John Porter Memorial Lodge and the Main / Dining Hall building.
After the start, run the perimeter of the large field and parking area.
Runners will go around the large field at the eastern part of the Camp Anderson Property.
At the far edge of the Camp Anderson property line, you will enter a wooded section that might offer some mud on your journey.
Next, you head back to the pond and go along the breast.
Runners will follow a causeway between the pond and the creek back toward the Main / Dining Hall building and then past John Porter Memorial Lodge with the creek on your left.
Then you will make a left turn and cross over the stream. The course will horseshoe around and you will now be running along the creek downstream on your left.
Next, it is a slow turn toward the Chapel/Amphitheater.
After you run around the edge of the field in front of the Chapel and through the shooting ranges, you will come close to oncoming traffic – be sure to stay left the turn left toward the showers/restrooms building.
You will run close to the creek and past the “25 Pavilion”
The Rhododendron Tunnel
The Green Bridge
At the end of the tunnel, you bear right over a bridge and then toward a paved road. Though this is a rural road, please use caution as it is open to traffic.
After crossing the paved road, you will enter Camp 103.
You will have a road on your left and a hill on the right that descends down into a bowl where you will start climbing out via a set of switchbacks.
The Waging Tail
As it circumnavigates above the bowl, the course will traverse a series of gullies before a mildly technical yet short climb up the hill before descending again.
The trail will descend on an old abandoned logging road called “The Highway.” The course will remain on this carriage road until it reaches an open parking area called “The Short Bus”.
The Short Bus
Runners will cross the paved road before making a hard left turn.
The Aid Station
We will have the aid station in a pavilion amid the cool pines.
The Final Stretch
After the aid station, participants will run above the John Porter Memorial Lodge and the Main / Dining Hall building and across the timing mat, successfully completing one lap of the Camp Anderson Course.
