CAMDEN— The eighth Ragged Mountain Scuttle Obstacle Course took place on the Kuller Trail on Saturday morning September 17th with impressive fitness feats at the Camden Snow Bowl.

The course is a variety of natural and man-made obstacles on the trail. The layout varies each year, and is based on the terrain and weather conditions of the week of the event.

Not only did participants have to traverse the course of over 20 obstacles, but they had to tackle steep inclines and 500 feet of elevation on the round-trip, up-and-down course.

The participants, which included over 130 people of all ages and some in teams (with similar outfits/uniforms), had the option of taking the course once, twice and, for the bravest, six times.

The Kuller Trail event was presented by Cedarworks and included a General Race, Elite Round, Double Down and Ultimate Challenge categories.

There was a free class for children.

Chet Hanscom rose to the ultimate challenge by completing the course six times in a row in three hours, 14 minutes and 31 seconds.

An unknown participant, someone who registered but did not provide a name, completed the 3.2-mile course once in less than 20 minutes. Rebecca Stevens was the first woman to finish, placing sixth overall with a time of 31:01.

In the doubles option of the course, Emmarie Wallace placed first in 48:08. Stephen Wallace was the first man to finish, third overall at 48:13.

Proceeds from the event go to the Snow Bowl Fourth Grade Learn to Ski program and One Community Many Voices, a Rockland-based charity. OCMV, a 501c(3), which provides proactive solutions to prevent a temporary obstacle from turning into a financial, self-confidence or well-being crisis when no other resources are available. In return, the beneficiaries pay it through self-selected volunteerism.
