A Wet Potomac Heritage 50km - Results Available

The weather was not that bad at the Potomac Heritage 50km. Yes, there was rain, but it wasn't too hard. Also, it was not too cold. But the streams were high and the mud on the trail got a bit squishy.


Kerry's report and results are now available.


The event was great as usual. A well-marked course and great aid stations. The post race festivities were up to the usual high standard of our hostess, Kerry.


A big thank you to Kerry and all of her volunteers!

Oil Creek 100

Jim Harris reports:


"A handful of VHTRC individuals were at the inaugural Oil Creek 100 Trail Runs this past Saturday [October 10] - Bob Combs, Margie Hughes, Brian Musick, Hunt Bartine, Tom Sperduto (first 100) and I. Probably others that I missed. Great race. Technical course with over 17,000 feet of gain. Excellent first year event and Tom Jennings is to be commended for all of his effort as a first time RD."
