Dave Frazier of Harrisonburg led a strong field of runners in winning the Elizabeth Furnace 50km race in the Fort Valley on Saturday March 15. Dave crushed the previous course record, set in 2013 by Brad Hinton, coming in just under 5 hours (in 4:59:32) on this extremely challenging course. Angela Russell of Frederick, MD, was the first woman to finish, in a time of 6:53. A record number of runners participated in the event, and a large number of them shared in the EFA "Magellan Award" through their uncanny ability to get lost.

The MLK training runs were well attended last weekend with 56 starters for Catherine's 8 on Saturday, and 60 runners showing for the revised Gap to Gap on Sunday. Temps were low and winds were high as runners made their way around the Catherine's course, with a slight improvement in the weather for those traversing the G2G figure eight the next day in the Massanuttens.
