Crossing the Stream at the Potomac Overlook Trail Runs

Potomac Overlook Trail Runs
4k - 8k - 12k

Saturday, March 26, 2005


by Ed Demoney, RD

142 runners braved Potomac Overlook Regional Park trails today to run one, two or three 4K loops. Cool weather and overcast skies were good for running with everyone grateful the rain stayed away so they could come play in the woods in Arlington, Virginia.

Bryon Powell, Arlington,12K winner in 2004, decided one loop was enough this year and finished in 16:09 with a wide margin over Andrew Beck, Fairfax, age 10, in 18:56. Only one other runner, Neil Whiteman, Arlington, also broke 20 minutes. First 4K woman was Susan Edmonds of Baltimore who finished in 22:01 with Arlington's Emily Blagg, age 10, not far behind at 22:27.

First place in the 8K was Washington's Simon Issacs with a time of 31:29. In second place was Arlington's Garth Terry in 36:31. The woman's 8K winner was Nora Kaoves from Washington in a time of 50:07. Amy Gay of Arlington finished second in 51:05.

Crossing the stream in Potomac Overlook ParkBoth 12K winners were close to record breaking times but finished seconds short. Tommy Nohilly, visiting relatives within walking distance of Potomac Overlook, found out about the race about an hour before the start and finished first in 47:32. Nohilly hails from Kotonah, NY. Second was Michael Vega of Ashburn in 52:31. Laura Dewald, Baltimore, ran a strong 12K, finishing in 1:04:15, well ahead of Yvette Davis, Annapolis, in 1:07:20.

As usual, there were Mad Bomber Hats, spring flowers and assorted cakes for age group winners. Brent Reynolds, the one and only Mad Bomber appeared in person this year but was unable to run due to a recent skiing injury. Pansies were the only available choice of flowers with spring being a little late this year.

In addition to the Mad Bomber Hats and flowers, certificates for a pair of Inov-8 running shoes were awarded to the 12K race winners thanks to Chris Scott and VHTRC. Inov-8, England's fastest growing specialist off-road running brand is a new name to most runners, launching its US operation last year.

Laura DeWald at the Potomac Overlook Trail RunsIn addition to the numerous awards, runners were treated to an assortment of cookies, crackers and other refreshments after their run through Potomac Overlook.

They needed a treat considering the challenging trail, two stream crossings to be negotiated on rocks on each loop, and a treacherous descent about a mile into each 4K where a misstep could send a runner hurtling over a cliff to rocks and the Donaldson Run stream far below. Everyone survived, of course, as they have since the trail runs originated in 1991.

Volunteers from VHTRC and Food for Others provided great support for the event. Course markings by Anstr Davidson, timing and results support by Valerie Meyer and Jim Pottmyer and logistical efforts of Joe Clapper were especially noteworthy, not to mention the harried parking/registration/t-shirt efforts of Richard Guadagno, Anne Suter Zimmer, Roxanne Rice, Liz Reinert, and Rosalie Demoney.
