Join us Saturday February 12, 2022 at Camp Wesley Woods!

Come explore the trails of Camp Wesley Woods located in Townsend beneath the foothills parkway. Race will start on Gravel service roads and will enter into the perimeter trail system consisting of double and some single track trail terrain. Hilly terrain will be present! This event will feature a 6-mile race as well as a 3-mile hike option for those who choose to not run but still support the camp by participating in an adventure!  The 6-mile run course will be a "figure-8" fashion with turn around point located at the summit of the GLORIOUS Sunset point trail spur before returning to back and heading into the loop and then off to the finish. Water/ aid station will be available at the gravel road/ trail intersection along the main road of camp (mile 2 & mile 5). 

Hiking and History Guide

Hike will be a single loop without the spur extension. For Hikers interested in hiking the trail, you may choose to hike at your own pace, or, with two local trail hiking experts in the area; Charles Maynard, a master storyteller and smokey mountain historian, along with Bob Hayes, local trail expert. Both will lead hiking groups for those who wish to journey together at a leisure pace and learn more in depth about the ecology of the trail along the way.
