OWBC RedBud Trail Challenge
The Redbud Trail Challenge is a Trail Hike/Run to benefit Ohio Wilderness Boys Camp (OWBC). Bring the whole family to participate and choose between a 5K or 10K course. It will be run on OWBC's lovely 600 acre forested property located in the hills of Southeast Ohio. The trail will go through 2 primitive campsites (the 5K will go through 1 campsite) which the boys built and where they reside. A few more unique features are crossing the 68' span Nehemiah suspension bridge, the beautiful springtime forest lush with Redbud and Dogwood blossoms, and huge boulders alongside the trail. There will be 3 refreshment/first aid stations (1 on the 5K course) spread out over the course of the trail. The 10K trail is fairly difficult and has 1,700' of elevation gain and is approximately 30% single track and 70% old logging trails. The 5K is a bit less rugged for those who want the fun of hiking in the woods, but not the difficulty and length of the 10K. All participants who register before April 11 will receive a T-shirt and a wooden award plaque. After the event, hang around with your family and friends while enjoying a scrumptious meal for the whole family. All proceeds from the race will support the mission of Ohio Wilderness Boys Camp, a nonprofit organization helping troubled boys and their families find new hope. Register today and help us help boys. Hope to see you on the trail.
Ohio Wilderness Boys Camp is a nonprofit organization operated from a Christian ethos and value system and exists to help bring healing to troubled boys and their families.
