Laurel Highlands

Laurel Highlands, the oldest pure trail race in this area, was held on June 12-13.  Jim Harris was the leading VHTRC finisher in eighth place. Due to the closure of the bridge across the PA Turnpike, the course was seven miles longer this year. That and the warm weather made this year's event particularly brutal. You will also notice the MMT course record holder in the results. Results

Scott Brockmeier Wins 3 Days at the Fair

While 170 runners were taking on the Massanutten rocks this weekend, some VHTRC members were taking on a different challenge - running for 24-48 hours around a 0.85 mile loop in a county fairground in New Jersey.  Overcoming the desire to catch the pig races, and inspired by the cotton candy at the aid station, club member Scott Brockmeier was the overall winner in the 48 hour race, covering 240 laps, and Sandy Powell was 2nd woman and 4th overall.  VHTRC's Bill Gentry and Tom Sperduto also participated.

Alex Papadopoulos reports: "The ICY-8 became the ICKY-8 this past Saturday [May 1].  From 30 inches of snow and a cancellation to 90 degrees and sunny, runners took to the trails in Prince William Forest Park to see if the change in venue and temperatures would alter anything.  VHTRCers Brad Hinton and Johanna Lockner took top honous for overall male and female.  Ageless Mike Campbell finished a strong second overall.  Other VHRTCers included David Snipes, James Hinton, Caroline Williams, and Keith Hosman to name a few."  Results
