Fuzzy Fandango

7th Annual Fuzzy Fandango

The Fuzzy Fandango is a trail running event scheduled for Saturday, November 12th, 2016. The event will encourage runners of all abilities to enjoy the Mohican Region by running a great network of trails.

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting the race start and finish on Camp Nuhop’s Main Property. We have closed the whole property to enhance the fuzzy experience.

New this year will be the option for runners to stay at Camp Nuhop before and after the Fandango. Check out our virtual tour to get a feel for the property and options for great fall weekend for runners and families alike!

This will be an adventure away from ordinary running for some and just another day in the park for others but a great time for everyone!
