Allegheny Trailrunners Trail Fest at Camp Anderson - A 3, 6, 12 Hour Endurance Event
The Allegheny Trailrunners Trail Fest is coming to Camp Anderson near Bald Eagle, PA between State College and Altoona, PA and minutes from I-99 — in the heart of The Alleghenies on July 10th, 2021.
The Trail Fest will begin Friday afternoon when we open Camp Anderson for anyone who wants to pitch their tent in the main field. That evening hang out at the main bonfire or walk from camp to camp as we can have more than half-dozen campfires throughout the 80-acres of Camp Anderson.
The main event is Saturday with three endurance runs of 3, 6 and 12 hours beginning at 6am for the 6 and 12 hour events and 9am for the three hour event on our 2 mile course --- or run it as a relay. Run during the allotted time or as little as you want... it is up to you!
