5K Trail Run & Walk

benefiting the scholarship funds at Camp Henry.  

Saturday, October 17, 2020 at Camp Henry | 10:00 am  

We're raising money to send kiddos to camp. Camp Henry has a long history and major commitment to making a summer camp experience accessible to all children and families – regardless of their ability to pay. Over the past ten years we have provided over $1 million in scholarship assistance to make summer camp a reality for families in financial need.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to benefit from an amazing, positive, loving, fun-filled, and life changing Christian camping experience.

The run for camp – a 5k trail run is being held on Saturday, October 17 at Camp Henry in Newaygo, MI. 

Due to the generous support of our sponsors, 100% of the proceeds go directly into each camp's Scholarship Fund.

Event Information:

The race surface for the 5K Trail Run (and Walk) is 95% natural with a quick jaunt through a paved area. The trails are well marked and natural obstructions, like roots, are spray painted for safety. The most common surfaces are grass, durable natural pathways, and dirt. Jogger strollers that handle natural terrain are welcome.

The 5K Trail Run will provide you with the opportunity to take in the sights Camp Henry has to offer as you wind through the scenic trails on Camp Henry's 212 acres. The 5K Trail Run will be timed and awards will be given. 

The 5K Trail Walk is perfect if you are interested in getting out, getting fit, and enjoying a beautiful morning on the trails. It will follow the same route as the 5K Trail Run. The 5K Trail Walk is a leisurely event so there is no pressure. 

Everyone is welcome! Although, please do leave your dog(s) at home.
