Neal Gorman wins Pinhoti 100

While many VHTRC members were racing at Masochists or enjoying the shenanigans and trail miles at Potomac Heritage 50K last weekend, Neal was regaining his winning ways by capturing the Pinhoti 100 in Alabama.

In coming up with a way to express and share some of my observations and comments about the recent 2012 UTMB in and around Chamonix, France, I will borrow a method used by Anita Finkle to recognize her “top 10” memories/reflections from past runs she has done.

Elizabeth's Furnace 50km Results

It was just about a perfect day for running the Elizabeth Furnace Fat Ass 50km on Saturday March 10, and the 55 participants in this year's race took full advantage.  Kyle Lawrence, a very very late entrant in the field, led literally from start to finish to win in a time of 5:35.  Michele Harmon was the first woman to the finish, with a time of 7:04.  There were 41 official finishers.        Results | EFA 50km site

The Old Web Site Stuff - Now Available

First VHTRC logoBased on a ground swell of one or two users, we have made the old stuff on the Web site available.  John Dodds's posts, the crazy pictures, and the stuff from the infancy of the club. It's all there but - many of the links are broken and the navigation is out of date. It's like wandering in the woods without trails.  But you will stumble on interesting things like, to the right, the club's first logo as sent out in a fax from Chris Scott. Also, breathless headlines like, "180 Finish Bull Run Run!"  This new section has the sophisticated name: Old Stuff. The link is on the top, right of every page.
