The 2022 Chemin-A-Haut 4 Mile Trail Run and 1 Mile Walk will be the 6th year for the event to take place. The event is for all that enjoy the beauty of nature. Organizers have set three goals for the Chemin-A-Haut Run and Walk. First, to provide a fun race, for everyone that enjoys trail running or walking along natural trails under towering forests, and along scenic lakeshore and bayou. Second, to enjoy the unspoiled beauty that one of the oldest parks in Louisiana has to offer. Participants will run the same route used by Native Americans centuries ago. Finally, to invest all proceeds from the event in projects to promote Morehouse Parish such as Chemin-A-State Park, Bussey Brake, the Morehouse Memorial Airport, and a new Louisiana Delta Community College Bastrop Campus. If you have never participated in the event, organizers believe you will be impressed with the uniqueness of the run and walk and especially the hand-made medallions and awards which are made from the wood of Cypress trees.
Participants are encouraged to register with a team. Teams will be compete for the “Most Team Members,” the “Most Spirited,” and the “Most Creatively Dressed.”
