Starting crowd in 2010.
Start and finish at Overton Lodge on Standing Stone Lake, Hilham. Start across the lodge following Morgan Creek to turnaround at 1.5 miles. Continue past the starting line to a second turnaround at 3.7 miles. Same way back to the finish. Considered a fast and scenic course.
Course History Originally a 7.1-mile race, The Reindeer Stampede 7 Miler, started in 1995 as the last race before the Christmas break. It started at the cross walk near the Recreation Hall and leaving the park going south on Hwy 52, then making Fletcher Circle, headed north on Hwy 52 passing the park entrance and turning left at the next road. A few years later the campground was paved and the course was changed to The Reindeer Stampede 10K. It looped through the campground and headed out ofthe park to Hwy 52, making a right turn heading south to a turn-around, then heading back into the park looping the campground again and finishing at the Hall. Runners complained of turning into the campground loop the second time when they could see the finish. So, the next year the course was changed again, leaving out the final loop of the campground and taking in Fletcher Circle from the original course and finishing back at the Recreation Hall. In 2005 the date of the race was changed to mid November, trading with the date of Johnsonville Charge. This allowed for the use of Overton Lodge and the whole course to move down to the lake. The Reindeer Stampede name would no longer work because of the date change. The name Bigfoot Scramble 5 Miler was chosen because of the rumors of Bigfoot being spotted at Standing Stone. Course was certified in 2013. All courses were designed by Lynn Burnett, Livingston. The 2020 race was canceled due to Covid 19.
