Wet and wild weather at Promise Land 50K+

Neal Gorman and Ragan Petrie were the first VHTRC male and female finishers at the Promise Land 50K+. Neal was fifth male in 4:52 and Ragan was fourth female in 5:57. Marty Lindemann was the first Grand Masters female and Gary Knipling was the first Super Masters male finisher. Conditions at the start were ripe for PRs with cloudy skies and temps in the 40s, but five hours later cold sleet, torrential rains, and close lightning strikes made for an "epic" day on the trails around Apple Orchard Falls west of Bedford, VA.
