Camden — Rain, fog and steamy air added natural obstacles to the third annual Ragged Mountain Scuttle 5-kilometer obstacle course Sunday, Sept. 18 at the Camden Snow Bowl.

In its third year, the event drew a large turnout of participants compared to its previous years. The final tally was 256 adventure-seeking and daring souls, brave enough to tackle obstacles with names like I Hit a Wall, Skinned Knees, Show Me the Ropes, Stick It, Tire Tracks, Balls to the Wall and Ladder From Hell among others.

Last year, 136 hardy souls turned out to trek the obstacle course.

The scuttle was designed as a family event and featured 20 obstacles on a 5K loop on the Ragged Mountain trails. A bounce house was present for children too small to participate in the mountain course.

The event was a fundraiser for the Camden Snow Bowl through the nonprofit One Community Many Voices and for Go! Malawi.

Funds raised will support the Camden Snow Bowl and programs such as the fourth-grade learn-to-ski program, serving children in Knox County. Last year the Camden Snow Bowl served 14 elementary schools and about 420 students in the region.

Go! Malawi supports education, health and well-being of orphans in Malawi, Africa. The organization also hosts a handful of 5K road races in the Midcoast each year.

Patrick Powers raced across the slick 3.1-mile trail and grappled with the obstacles with a pace that one might see on a 5-kilometer road course. Powers, the fastest overall finisher, had a time of 20:31 for the course.

William Simon, the second fastest, was clocked at 21:06 overall.

Stephanie Lauer was the quickest female to cross the course with an overall time of 24:20, placing sixth overall.
