What's the Weather Like?
Don't forget the U.S. Weather Service page. It takes some getting used to, but it is very helpful.
View from the Blue Ridge: You can see a live view of the Massanutten Mountains from the Mountain View Web Cam in the Shenandoah National Park. This camera only refreshes during the daylight hours. The camera is not in the Massanuttens, but it is pointing west toward them. The most distant ridge is in West Virginia. The two ridges in front of that are the Massanuttens. If you look closely, you will see Kennedy Peak and Edinburg Gap. The start/finish is between those two landmarks. It is not visible. This camera is above 3,000 feet. The Massanuttens are 2,000 feet. Local fog may not be replicated on the course. See this detail of the camera's image:
View fromI-81: This camera is on I-81. It is just south of Edinburg and faces south. The Massanutten Mountain is to the left. The ridge in the distance is Bird Knob. I-81 Camera

The 2013 MMT is underway!
Saturday 05:27 The runners started at 4 am. There were 197 starters and one person who did not check in. So it could be 198 starters. We will find out at Edinburg. It is 60 degrees and calm. We have entered the Did Not Starts. You can see them at the bottom of the "Results" link to the right. Several people have joined the Solo division. There is not an up to date list, but if you look at a runner's splits it should reflect if he or she is in the Solo Division.
Friday 18:55 All but about 15 people are signed in. It was warm today, hopefully a bit cooler tomorrow. We should have the starters list about 4:30 am tomorrow, and then the first aid station results around nine or so.
Friday 07:19 A Cicada!
Friday 05:44 49 degrees, calm, and clear at the Camp. If we weren't awake anyway, the whippoorwills took care of that.
Thursday 17:17 While it looks like we will be able to upload data more often, we will likely get started slowly. We will not have radio support at the aid stations until Elizabeth Furnace at 33 miles. We will have the data from Edinburg, 12.1, because we will drive the results back. After Elizabeth Furnace, we should have data from all the aid stations except for Shawl and Indian Grave Ridge. We are handling Bird Knob by a cell phone to radio link. So those times may be delayed.
Thursday 17:02 We uploaded a couple of pictures of the Camp. It is quiet and peaceful now. It will change tomorrow. Take the photos link to the right.
Thursday 15:31 We have Internet access at the Camp! The official temperature on the $1.95 Walmart thermometer is 76 degrees. It feels like about 96. The humidity is very high. But it looks like we will be able to upload without long walks.
Tuesday 21:23 We finished our testing. We will see how things go this weekend.
Saturday 07:41 We will be testing this page. In the past, we have learned just about every way to mess up. We are trying to do better this year.
May 6, 2013: We are working on this page now. The data you see are for testing.
We hope to have more frequent updates this year. Runners will again have the ability to upload pictures that will be linked to this page and will appear on their indivitual results. The upload function should be ready by Wednesday afternoon, May 8.
Here are a points you should remember:
- If you drop, return your bib number to the aid station captain or other official. The only way you should leave with your bib number is if you finished.
- Nothing on this Web site will be available at the event. If you want something, print it out and bring it. If you need the crew instructions, print them for yourself. Crew Instructions
- The Camp is not near civilization. The nearest food, coffee, 7 Eleven, etc. is at least an hour round trip from the Camp. Also, there is no cell phone access at the Camp. (To get cell phone access, drive 1.7 miles east on Route 675. You should get coverage at the top of the hill.)
We will be radio headquaters near, but not at, the finish line. We may have Internet access where we will be. We hope that the walk to upload data that we had to make in past years will not be necessary this year.
We hope to have our first update by noon on Saturday. That should confirm who has started and should have the results from the first major aid station at Edinburg Gap, 12.1 miles. Then we will try to upload as often as we can.
We have learned there is much room for error. Most of our information will be accurate. Some will not be.
