Welcome to our Annual Sadlers Creek Stumble! This event is sure to bring out speed in our experienced runners as well as the best in our first timers! Sadlers Creek State Park sits on 395 acres on a peninsula that extends into Lake Hartwell, one of the Savannah River reservoirs. Campsites available on Lake Hartwell at one of lakefront sites, observing wildlife and recreational water sports are only a small sampling of activities to be enjoyed in the park. The event will be run on a 6 Mile loop that encompasses the entire park. The course will run right pass each campground during each loop. This is great for those runners in the longer distances that want to make a quick pit stop at their personal tent or aid station and crew!
