Come join us at Camp Shenandoah in Swoope, VA for the inaugural Tender Toe Trail Trot! Join us for a 5K, 10K, or Half Marathon that takes along the hills and trails of Camp Shenandoah. The course winds through wooded trails and dips across streams before taking you through our Wallenborn Conservation Reserve where you’ll enjoy the scenic views of Little North Mountain and the surrounding countryside.

Normally, we tell our Scouts “no running in camp,” but you all are more than welcomed. This course is definitely not flat and can be challenging in spots, but the scenery can’t be beat.

Runners will start and finish at Camp Shenandoah.

All runners signing up by September 30, 2019 are guaranteed a shirt. Awards will be presented to the top 3 overall male and female finishers, and to the top 3 in each age group: 10 & under, 11-14, 15-18, 19-29, 30-36, 37-45, 46-55, 56-65, 66 & over.

5K Map


The 5K portion of the Tender Toe Trail Trot will start at the gates in the parking lot. From there, runners will head into camp, past the handicraft shelter, across the creek, and past the Stewart campsite. Runners will go through Scoutcraft, up the stairs to the top of our shooting sports ridge, passing the rifle range and the archery range before heading down the hill. Once runners cross the stream, they will loop back towards Nature, past the Coty campsite, and turn left towards the Gilkeson campsite and head towards the Stem Area. Runners will pass the water tower and head toward the shower house, crossing the creek to pass Barnett, Forbes, and Andrews. Runners will come out behind the dining hall, go past maintenance, and run that gravel road to camp’s entrance. Runners will make for the Wallenborn Reservation, running to the top of the hill before hitting the Blue Trail. The trail is marked with blue trail markers and snakes you through the Reserve. Runners then hit the Hunters Access Road, taking them back into camp. Running back into camp, runners will run through the finishing lane, the finish line, set at Aquatics.

10K/Half Marathon Map


The Half marathon course is the 10K course run twice.

The 10 K race is comprised of three loops. An outer loop, the Wallenborn Loop, and an inner loop.

The outer loop begins at the gates in the parking lot, but at the beginning, runners will run out of camp, around the lake, and access the Boundary Trail by the dam. The trail runs behind the shooting ranges, behind cope, along the boundary, until looping back toward the Spring Box. From the Spring Box, runners will head back toward camp and then hang a left as if going towards Morrison. Runners pass Gibbons, Bosserman, and Ridgeway, before cutting through the OA ring, along the trail to Barnett, and then out of camp along the maintenance road.

Runners exit camp and run along the Wallenborn Reserve (Wallenborn Loop). Once they get back into camp, they will run the inner loop (see 5K) description. If they are running the 10K, they will finish through the Finishing Lane at Aquatics, if they are running the half marathon, they will run a second lap.
