Frolic Through the Woods with John Martz

Tents & Trails -The Midwest Trail Running Festival, Presented by Altra

Join us for the 3rd annual Tents & Trails – The Midwest Trail Running Festival, Presented by Altra at Camp Manatoc on Labor Day weekend. This weekend extravaganza features something for everyone — trail races, a duathlon, camping, vendor demonstrations & raffles, food, a beer garden (provided by HiHO Brewing Company with the proceeds benefiting the Buckeye Trail Association) live entertainment and more! Last year, John Martz and his son participated in the weekend festivities. Read all about his great time!





Last year my son and I participated in the Tents & Trails weekend.  He is not a runner but did most of his Eagle Scout requirements at Camp Manatoc, where back in the day I too spent time hiking and camping.  I participated in the Leave No Trace half marathon, the trails are some of the best in the CVNP and are only open to the public for special occasions such as this.
We camped out Saturday evening and did some hiking on Sunday.  The hot showers were a great asset!!
Of course, Western Reserve Racing did a top-notch job organizing and coordinating the event, including a hot meal, vendors, and giveaways. We are looking forward to this year!
SIGN UP TODAY to frolic through the woods with John! John is also part of the band FLN who will be providing live entertainment on Saturday afternoon. Don’t miss out!
Saturday- Leave No Trace Marathon & Half
Sunday- Minnehaha 5 Miler and Good Turn 2 Miles Kids’ Trail Race and Dirty Duathlon
Camping throughout the entire weekend!
