The 7th annual Chestnut Ridge Trail Race is on Saturday, Nov 19, 2016.


The race will be run entirely on the camp's single track trails and roads (dirt and gravel) at Chestnut Ridge Camp and Retreat Center in beautiful Efland, NC. The course will feature rolling hills through old hardwood forests. There are two race options – a 4ish mile race and an 8.5ish mile race. There will be 3 staffed water station for the 8.5 loop and 1 for the 4 mile loop. Walkers are welcome on the 4 mile trail. Please, Please no pets, goats or baby strollers in the race.

Please, this is a “no headphones” event. This rule is intended to provide a safe and enjoyable trail run for all participants. Running a trail race while wearing headphones means that you can’t hear those who may want to pass safely. Please be respectful of this rule for the safety of other runners.

Whom does this event benefit?

Proceeds from the race will benefit the “Pass It On” Annual Fund which supports the camping ministry, enhances facilities and equipment, and helps send children and youth to camp through the campership scholarship program. By running in the race you can help send a kid to camp!

Comments from previous races:

This was my 2nd chestnut ridge race and like last year it was awesome! beautiful setting, wonderful people, good cause. thank you for the hard work in putting this together! It is such a delight to participate, I wish it happened every season! I encouraged several of my running buds to attend, and many remarked it was their favorite trail race yet. congratulations on hosting one of the best local races....

you all did such a great job!!! It was such a fun morning. And the post-race pastries were fantastic....

Thanks for another terrific and very well run race. I cannot imagine all the work that was done to clear the trails of the falling leaf cover. The homemade goodies even sweeter....
