From Stephanie Wilson: Recently I posted a brief comment on the VHTRC listserv with a link to photos that I took at Elizabeth Furnace 50k run. I received a number of emails subsequently from individuals who either couldn’t open the Picasa link or wished to receive a more detailed account of our run that day. I thought I’d post a race report here with (hopefully) a functional link to the photos of the run as well.
Six people completed what Quatro calls the the "Fish Hook 46 miler" - Signal Knob Parking lot to Camp Roosevelt. As he notes, this may be a preview of Camp Roosevelt's new status as a popular drop point at MMT. Results
Larry Ryan held on to a two game lead to win the 2009-10 VHTRC College Bowl Contest. Kevin Bligan was second, and four people were tied for third. The contestants generally had difficulty predicting the many upsets that occurred. Some of us had more difficulty with that than others. Final contest results
Many happy, but confused runners enjoyed the annual VHTRC Magnus Gluteus Maximus 50km on December 12. The day dawned cold, but clear, reducing attendance but providing for great running. Thanks to Joe and Michele for their work on the event and to Gary Knipling and Bob Phillips for the second aid station.
