Massanutten Training Academy

Run 3: Camp Roosevelt to Camp Roosevelt

This run covers the final section of MMT, from Camp Roosevelt to the finish. With 37.5 miles and 6,800 feet of ascent, it is the longest and most difficult of the Training Academy runs, with climbs up Duncan Knob, Kern’s Mountain, Bird Knob, Scothorn, and Jawbone (twice). At least the last 5 miles are downhill.

Start time is 6:00 am — in the dark — so you will need a light. PATC Maps G and H are also required (available online here and here, or in most local outfitters — REI or Hudson Trail, etc.).

This is an event with very real risks to your well being. The VHTRC does not provide medical care for runners at this event. Runners are responsible for their own health, safety, and well being at this event. No doctors, nurses, or emergency medical technicians, or anyone with any medical training are available along the course, at any aid station, or at the finish. The club does not supply any medical goods or services, including bandages, splints, antiseptic, or Ibuprofen or any other drugs to maintain the health of runners. Physical, medical, and emergency care is the runners' responsibility. In case of an emergency, we will endeavor to get local emergency personnel to an injured runner as soon as possible. Since most of our events are in remote areas, medical care may be far away in distance or time. Each year, runners finish — or are forced to drop out — with scrapes, deep cuts, hematomas, dislocations, and sprains. Runners have experienced cuts, bruises, bee stings, and asthma attacks. This is an event with very real risks.
