Do you have what it takes? Give it your all at the Moccasin Lake Challenge

Saturday, September 1, brave runners will put their grit and determination to the test at the Moccasin Lake Challenge. The grueling, 19-mile road begins at 6,000 feet and makes the climb to a whomping 9,000 feet.

Crossing the finish line, runners/walkers take in the majesty of the glacial fed Moccasin Lake and experience a great sense of accomplishment to carry them through the year.

Moccasin Lake is considered to be spiritually healing.

Since its inception 7 years ago, The Moccasin Lake Challenge has never been about winning a race, it’s all about dedication and giving it your all.

“I just want people to test themselves and see how beautiful life can be,” said Mike Chingman, Founder of the challenge. “This year our vision is to have all attendees share in the dedication to our elders and start the challenge together.”

The dedication will begin at 8 am and the challenge will start around 9 am. Starting point is approximately 1/2 mile past the very end of Trout Creek Road.

Runners are asked to bring a donation item for an elder. All items collected will be given to the community elders at the Moccasin Lake Challenge Committee Elders Feast and giveaway in September.
