Leave No Trace Trail Marathon and Half Marathon


Saturday, September 2nd, 7:30 a.m., Camp Manatoc


Part of Tents & Trails, The Midwest Trail Running Festival!
The Spirit of Marnoc (Love of the Outdoors) is said to dwell in the woods of the high plateau at Camp Manatoc.  This unique, mostly single-track course is only open for public use once per year!  Now is your chance to challenge yourself by exploring the Boy Scout camp’s technical trails.  As beautiful as it is difficult, you’ll run through a white pine grove, tons of quick turns and plenty of hills.  Just when you’ve had enough, you’ll discover that we saved the best (worst?) hill for the sprint to the finish.

Check out Tents & Trails, The Midwest Trail Running Festival weekend and camping options!

Please note-Dogs and outside alcohol are not permitted at Camp Manatoc.
