First, congratulations to Bunny Runyan, Jack Evans, and Stephan Dobson for sharing the win for the 2012 season of the VHTRC football contest!

We are again having the college bowl contest.  You pick all the bowls and then sit back and watch the results for the holidays.  You can participate whether you played in the regular season or not. To make your picks, go to the Bowl Contest page.

MMT - The Number Is...

It looks like the DOW closed UP at 13,169.88.  That makes our starting number for the MMT lottery 988.  (We will confirm the number tomorrow.) If you want to see how this will play out, go to the hypothetical lottery and put in 988 and UP.  If you see a problem or have a question, let us know. Applicants List | MMT Entry

Neal Gorman wins Pinhoti 100

While many VHTRC members were racing at Masochists or enjoying the shenanigans and trail miles at Potomac Heritage 50K last weekend, Neal was regaining his winning ways by capturing the Pinhoti 100 in Alabama. He gives a detailed recap of Pinhoti, and of chasing Karl Meltzer at Grindstone 100, in a report on his blog here.


The 30th Mountain Masochist 50 mile run was held on November 3. The course featured a new start that added more singletrack and a climb up Mt. Pleasant off the Loop, and 4-8 inches of snow in the last 22 miles. As a result of the snow, the final cut-off time was extended 30 minutes. There were several VHTRC members in the event as well as many runners from the old days of this traditional run.  Results
