Summer Run 2023

6/12 Hour Endurance Runs

Camp Chet is preparing a track for 6/12 Hour Endurance Summer Runs.

When: Summer-Fall, 2023

Where: 5050 Pocket Road, Whitwell, TN, 37397

What: 6 or 12 hour timed trail run.

Course Details: The course is a clockwise 6 mile loop of mixed single and double track, grass fields, forest trails, and mining/logging roads. Each loop will have 1000ft of gain and is largely runnable with some moderately technical sections. This event will be scheduled for mostly after dark and over night runs.


All of Camp Chet cabins, RV, and tent spots will be available for 2 night minimum rentals during the event. There is a limited supply and they will be in high demand by runners and their families who stay onsite before, during, and after the event.
Most campers will need to check-in on Friday evening due to sites being located along side the track.
(Note: There will be a strict cancelation policy so be sure you want the reservation before booking, which will remove it from the availability calendar for others)


Any event of this magnitude could not be possible without generous sponsors. We are currently soliciting sponsors that have a common passion for sharing the joy of outdoor experiences and being active. We also believe we live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country and love showing it off. Our sponsors share these passions and we encourage your patronage.
