The VHTRC Board agreed with MMT RD Stan Duobinis's suggestion that we move the start/finish of the event from the Skyline Ranch Resort to the Caroline Furnace Lutheran Camp. Here is the explanation of that move:
Thanks to Kerry Owens for hosting the annual VHTRC party to celebrate summer and honor our volunteers. There was great food, "refreshments," and a wonderful setting. The weather was not bad either. A good time was had by all!
Jaret Seiberg finished the Grand Teton 100 miler on September 6. The event is held in Idaho on the western side of the Tetons. Jaret reports:
"This is a small race, but very professionally run and in a beautiful setting. ...the Grand Tetons are in view for much of the race. Most of the course is run between 8,000 feet and 10,000 feet, though it does drop down to 6,700."
The Ring started at 7 am this morning. Only two entrants didn't show - Mike Mason and Ernesto Casarez. There are 30 runners out there. VHTRC.org will set up its headquarters at Powells Fort.
