Massanutten Training Academy

Run 2: Elizabeth Furnace to Camp Roosevelt

Training Run #2 goes from Elizabeth Furnace to Camp Roosevelt, roughly the middle third of MMT. There are several gravel road sections (between Shawl and Veach Gaps and between Indian Grave and Habron Gap) and the trail is otherwise generally runnable, making this one of the “easier” Training Academy runs.

Jack Anderson’s photos from the snowy 2013 event provide an excellent sense of the event and the course — how this training run should be a group effort, allowing runners to meet and learn from each other, as well as to help ensure that all are able to remain on this unmarked course over its full 30+ mile length. See also Gena Bonini’s and Doug Sullivan’s photos from 2009.
