Join us for a beautiful and challenging trail race at Camp Crooked Creek Scout Reservation right in the middle of bourbon country. If the wind is right, you'll smell the sweet aroma of mash from the distillery located just a few miles away.
This challenging 12.7-mile loop featuring over 2,000 feet of elevation gain per loop will meander through 1,000 acres of rolling hills covered with a hardwood forest of oak, hickory, and beech trees, spectacular natural views, and abundant wildlife. Runners will also enjoy a few miles along the amazing 70-acre John Barr lake located right in the heart of the start-finish line and runner's village. This well maintained and legendary trail has never been available to the general public to run until now.
With options of 100 miles, 50 miles, marathon, and 1/2 marathon distances this event has a challenge waiting for any runner!
The Start/Finish line will offer 5 acres of lawn for runner's to spread out their support tents, and runners taking the 50 mile and 100 mile challenge will enjoy a "Pit Road" that will allow your team access to you at the start-finish line and again just a few miles into each loop. As an added bonus heated shower houses will be available for runners to freshen up after conquering the "Crooked Creek Crusher" course.
The Crooked Creek Ultra course is located 15 minutes from the Louisville International Airport, just off Interstate 65 in Shepherdsville Kentucky, and is a great option for runners looking to mark a Kentucky event off of their list and possibly hit a few bourbon tours while in town.
Multiple lodging options are available within 10 minutes of the camp and (unheated cabins) will be available for a small fee while they last at Camp Crooked Creek. Primitive camping options will also be available with access to heated bathrooms and the shower house.
