It was a beautiful day at the 22nd HAT Run held on March 20 in northern Maryland. Some, however, suffered from poor training brought on by earlier storms. The top spots were pretty well dominated by Pennsylvanians. Guess they didn't get as much snow and could train more! Results are now available on the HAT Page
Leigh Schmitt and Aliza Lapierre set new event records at the 2010 Bull Run Run held on April 10. The team results are now ready and there is a report. Aaron Schwartzbard's photos are up and, new, the all-time data now has 2010 results. All is linked from the BRR 2010 Report page.
The hit of the day was the Wolf Run Shoals aid station which was definitely not in Kansas. Click the photo for a bigger version.
Bobby Gill and Justine Morrison were the top VHTRC finishers at the Holiday Lake 50K on Saturday. Bobby was 4th overall in 5:10 and Justine was 11th overall and first female in 5:15. Jack Kurisky was first male master and fifth overall in 5:11, Martha Wright was first female master in 6:21, and Janice Heltibridle was first female supermaster in 6:55. Many VHTRC members were there, no doubt trying to get in a "trail" run after Snowmageddon. Times were slower than usual due to 5+ inches of snow and ice on the course, which is now closer to a true 50K than in years past with more single track. Because of the snow, RD David Horton extended the cut-off time to 9 hours and 244 out of 268 runners finished. Results are here.
Gary Knipling hosted the annual Eagle Run on Mason Neck on January 31. The day started out cold, but with no wind and a bright sun, it wasn't too bad. Gary had aid stations almost every mile. Eagles were spotted, but fewer than normal. After the run, Gary led everyone in prayer as the group celebrated sobriety and abstinence. Photos from: Eric McGlinchey | Bobby Gill | Anstr
We would like to thank the voters for their participation in the logo election process. Logo number five, submitted by Andrew Speidel, has been elected as the winning logo. (His, now "our," logo is at right.) The runner up was logo number one, submitted by Doug Sullivan and the third place logo was logo number six, submitted by Laura Bur.

Gary has come up with the results from the Redeye 50km held on January 1. This traditional event was given to us by the the Slugs and particularly Dan Grayson, James Moore, and Bill Sublett. James was there to keep the tradition alive. Thanks to Gary Knipling who, with help from Jo Lockner and Bob Phillips, put on this year's event. As usual, the aid station was a cornucopia of cholesterol left over from the holidays. Results | Photos by: Ted Bielawa | Anstr Davidson.
