During the course, you will gain 469 feet of elevation and enjoy great views of the camp below. The 5k is a timed event, but is open for all ages and abilties. Afterwards, you can shower in the new showerhouse, attend the awards ceremony, and purchase some classic Susque food to help you fill back up as you enjoy live music and all of the activities of Susque's Harvest Festival.
