Along with the Charlottesville Area Trail Runners, Crozet Running is proud to present the 5th Annual Camp Holiday Trails 5-Miler!
What: A scenic, challenging 5-mile footrace along Reservoir Road in Charlottesville. All proceeds benefit Camp Holiday Trails. This is a unique experience to be able to run into the camp and be greeted by the campers and counselors!
When: Saturday, June 29th, at 7:30am. Race day registration and packet pickup is from 6-7am. Packet pickup is also at Crozet Running on Friday June 28th from 10am-6pm.
Where: The course starts in the parking lot of Trinity Presbyterian Church, on Fontaine Avenue Ext just off the 29 Bypass near I-64 (see course map below). From here, runners will turn left onto Reservoir Road and take this all the way to Camp Holiday Trails, where they will then turn left into camp and run the dirt road to the top of the Camp. Runners will then loop around and retrace their steps to finish at Trinity Presbyterian.
Course Description: The course starts and finishes at Trinity Presbyterian Church where there is ample parking. The first and last 0.8 miles of the course are on rolling paved road, but then the course turns into a scenic, shaded, serene gravel/dirt road that follows the reservoir stream all the way to Camp Holiday Trails. Here, runners turn left into Camp and head up the gravel camp road all the way to the top of the camp where they will be greeted by campers at the top! Runners will then circle the camp lodging and buildings and then retrace their steps back to the finish at the church. The course is very hilly but does have some flatter sections for faster running.
Cost: $20 early, $25 after June 15th, $30 race day
