     This the 5th Annual Apple Harvest 5K Trail Run.  The race has always taken place at Pleasant Grove Park - in large part due to the beautiful and expansive trail system.  The race was started - and continues to be organized by the Monticello Scouting District and is part of the Apple Harvest Boy Scout Camporee.  This is the 39th year for the Camporee.

    Fitness has been a pillar of the scouting program for over 100 years.  For many years, a 5K walk/run was part of the camporee.  We even had a Triathlon one year- with swimming, mountain biking, and trail running.

 In an effort to promote fitness in the community, it was decided to open the race up to non-scouting youth and families.  We have made many changes over the past 5 years.  We want this to be a premier trail running event for youth and families in Central Virginia.  We have tried to figure out what will encourage more youth runners/families to attend- and we think that one of the most important factors is the cost.  So- this year, we have made additional reductions in registration fees for youth runners under 15 as well as families.

     We have been blessed by numerous sponsors- who financially support our race.  We could not be successful without their help.  If you have the opportunity, thank them for their support.  One way to do that is to support their business.  All of the profit from our race goes to provide scholarships for scouts who need financial assistance to summer camp.

  We do want to recognize and award the winners of our race.  We will award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes for our Overall Mall and Overall Female.  We will also award in each of the following brackets for men and women:

                                    14 and under                        15-19             20-29             30-39

                                     40-49                        50-59             60 and over

    While at the race, we want to encourage you to take time to walk around the Scout Camporee and see what it is all about.  The theme this year is “The Wild Wild West”.  Scouts will be competing in a variety of western themes events as well as traditional scouting skills.  We do ask that non-scouts refrain from entering the campsites.

We hope you have a great time at our event.  And please - consider coming back next year!!
