The Daniel Boone Scramble 15k Trail Run will take place on Aug. 11 at Camp Daniel Boone in Haywood County.
The Daniel Boone Scramble has a variety of terrain for runners to negotiate.
“Their shoes will hit single track dirt, tarmac, gravel roads, stream crossings, steep climbs, and steep descents,” said Bill Lawrence, a trail runner in Haywood County who designed and course for the trail run. “The views vary from vistas of Cold Mountain and Shining Rock Wilderness, to an intimate vantage point of Camp Daniel Boone Program Areas and isolated backcountry fauna. A lot of effort has gone into making it a scenic experience for the participants, something they would like to just go out and hike one day.”
The night before the race, participants can tent camp or stay the night in one of the bunkhouses at Camp Daniel Boone.
This is also the third and final race of the Brooks-Jus’ Running Trail Triplicity Series. Anyone who ran DuPont, Rock2Rock and the Daniel Boone Scramble has the chance to win prizes, including a coveted entry in to the Shut In Trail Run
