Trail Run

2024 5k Trail Run, 10k Trail Run, One Mile Fun Run/Walk

Saturday, September 21, 2024

Our annual Trail Run occurs during our yearly Harvest Festival.

You can pre register for the trail run below, or you can also register the day of the race.  Registration opens at 7:45AM on the day of the race, closing at 9:00AM in preparation for a 9:30 start. 

There is a run for everyone with three different distances!

Afterwards, feel free to shower in our showerhouse, attend the awards ceremony, and purchase some classic Susque food to help you fill back up as you enjoy live music and all of the activities of Susque’s Harvest Festival.

Three Runs Available

5k Trail Run

Hit the trails in support of Susque! Susque’s 5k trail run will challenge you as you wind through the hills, streams, and various areas at Susque. During the course, you will gain 469 feet of elevation and enjoy great views of the camp below. The 5k is a timed event, but is open for all ages and abilties.

10k Trail Run

Our 10k course is the same as the 5k course, just twice!  It’s 2x the fun for the same price!

1 Mile (ish) Fun Run or Walk

For those who want to enjoy the day at Susque, but are looking for something a little less intense, the Fun Run will provide an easy, flat, approximate 1-mile circuit to enjoy the sights and sounds of Susque in the fall.
