What's the Weather Like?
Don't forget the U.S. Weather Service page. It takes some getting used to, but it is very helpful.
This is for those who want to see it. During the daylight hours, you can see what the weather is. Sort of. Is it overcast, sunny, or raining?
1. View from the Blue Ridge: You can see a live view of the Massanutten Mountains from the Mountain View Web Cam in the Shenandoah National Park. (More about the camera.) The camera is not in the Massanuttens, but it is pointing west toward them. The most distant ridge is in West Virginia. The two ridges in front of that are the Massanuttens. If you look closely, you will see Kennedy Peak and Edinburg Gap. The start/finish is between those two landmarks. It is not visible. This camera is above 3,000 feet. The Massanuttens are 2,000 feet. Fog that the camera sees may not be replicated on the course. Explanation of the camera's image:
2. View from Page Valley: This camera is south of Luray and points, we think, to the east -- the Blue Ridge. The Massanutten Mountain is behind the camera. This weather, however, should be similar to that at the race. Luray Weather Cam

That's all, folks!
Sunday 16:05 There were 199 starters and 120 finishers. We will have much more information about the event up soon. Thanks to all who made this weekend so great, and congratulations to the runners who faced very tough conditions so well.
Sunday 14:16 Here is what our weather station got for the weekend:
Temp (at 14:15) 81.5° (89.8/59.4)
Humidity 74% (96/49)
Sunday 10:52 We put out a rain gauge. Over the weekend through this morning, we got .4 inch of rain. There were two good periods of rain and a few periods of drizzle.
Sunday 04:44 Kathleen Cusick survived to finish ahead of some very good women who were shooting for the win.
Sunday 00:19 Brian Rusiecki won his first MMT. He is a three-time winner of Bull Run Run.
Saturday 20:58 The sun has set. It is nice now.
Saturday 16:58 We have had about a half hour of rain here at headquarters. So far, 1/4 inch. It is not a very violent storm. Here, anyway.
Saturday 12:38 Yes, it is warm here. So far, no rain (at headquarters, anyway).
Saturday 10:23 The word her is that Eva Pastalkova is after Angela Shartel's record set last year. Eva is a few minutes ahead of Angela's pace at Elizabeth Furnace. If you want to follow it, the splits from last year are here: http://www.vhtrc.org/mmt/splits/14-splits.html
Saturday 10:00 We don't have a radio at aid station 3, Woodstock. We should receive data from them by e-mail since they have cell access up there. But it will be delayed. Thus we have data from aid station 4 before 3.
Saturday 08:50 Jim Blandford, Jason Lantz, and Jared Fetterolf were leading at Edinburg Gap. Eva Pastalkova and Janessa Taylor were the leading women. We discovered another DNS. So there were 199 starters.
Saturday 04:25 Our next report will be about 9 or 10 am when we will have the times from Edinburg Gap, the first real aid station.
Saturday 04:23 The temperature and humidity numbers above come from a thermometer about 100 yards from the start/finish. The highs and lows should be during the race, not for the day.
Saturday 04:19 It was cool and humid at the start. There were 200 starters we think. (Three people did not check in, but they may have started. Eight people did not pick up their numbers.)
Saturday 02:35 It's cool at the start. Good luck to all!
Friday 20:03 Most people are checked in. The Solo list is updated. It rained a little, but not much. Up early in the morning!
Friday 17:37 One note. Camp Roosevelt will be closed to the public during the race. The aid station will be there, but parking may be tight. You can park in the dump station or in the horse parking lot east of Camp Roosevelt. Runners will be in both places. Be careful!
Friday 13:50 That temperature is real. It's a great day to sit under a tree and drink beer!
Friday 13:23 It is beautiful here now. Not sure how long it will last. We are set up. The temperature on this page is the temp here. We should be able to update it frequently.
Thursday 18:08 Bring bug spray! If you want to worry about something, the temperature is probably going to be a bigger problem than the rain.
Here are a points you should remember:
- If you drop, return your bib number to the aid station captain or other official. The only way you should leave with your bib number is if you finished.
- Nothing on this Web site will be available at the event. If you want something, print it out and bring it. If you need the crew instructions, print them for yourself. Crew Instructions
- The Camp is not near civilization. The nearest food, coffee, 7 Eleven, etc. is at least an hour round trip from the Camp. Also, there is no cell phone access at the Camp. (To get cell phone access, drive 1.7 miles east on Route 675. You should get coverage at the top of the hill.)
We will be radio headquaters near, but not at, the finish line. We may have Internet access where we will be. We hope that the walk to upload data that we had to make in past years will again not be necessary this year.
We hope to have our first update by noon on Saturday. That should confirm who has started and should have the results from the first major aid station at Edinburg Gap, 12.1 miles. Then we will try to upload as often as we can.
We have learned there is much room for error. Most of our information will be accurate. Some will not be.
If you have a question or want to understand the process better, check out the frequently asked questions.
If you are interested in the updates, let us know. Late at night, it helps to know someone is out there! You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
