This year’s event is held at the Bear Heaven Campground at Otter Creek Wilderness which lies in a bowl formed by Shavers Mountain and McGowan Mountain. Club members, please join us at this free club event for a day of running, fellowship, and club related meetings. These trails are often wet and muddy, so bring a change of clothes and shoes.

Directions



Activities


The day begins by doing what we do best, with a trail run! A 10 mile run is planning starting from the Bear Haven Campground. Shorter runs may be chosen by driving to the Otter Creek Trailhead and running an out-and-back. Afterwards, lunch is shared before getting into the meeting. The past year’s races, events, and stats are discussed. It is at this meeting where financial reports, RD race reports, and club suggestions are presented.
