After detailed analysis by the race committee, the results of the 2010 Potomac Heritage 50k are now available. Fantastic weather led to another great Potomac Heritage 50 km on November 7. This year, there was "Broderick theme" to honor and remember our friend. A big thanks to the volunteers and, of course, Kerry Owens, our hostess for this great event.

Jack shared the week one win, and then never looked back. He had at least 10 correct picks each week. Gary Lukacs was second and he also won the last week's contest. Gary was one of only three people who picked the Chargers over the Colts. Gary Knipling was third overall. Final season results | Week Twelve Results.
We will set up the College Bowl Contest when the bowl schedule comes out.

A huge thank you to Sharon and Ted Lapkoff for putting on a great 50k, the Halloweeny Fat Ass, in Maryland (and West Virginia and Virginia) on Saturday, October 30. A good time was had by all in great weather. Several ran the event in costumes. It is hard to have just one picture here, but we picked Greg Zaruba because he was sort of cute. This picture was taken by Bobby Gill (check out the rest of his pictures).
On the next day, several VHTRC members, including some who had run the Halloweeny, ran the Fire on the Mountain 50km in western Maryland. Results | Event Web site

Some have gotten their running shorts in a knot over the fact that VHTRC.org management has not updated the Magnus Gluteus Maximus Web page for this year. Sorry about that! The event will be held on December 11. Details about entry, etc. will come soon. The Web page has been updated.

Harland Peelle was the first of several VHTRC members at the Javalina 100 in Arizona on October 23. Harland was 21st in a time of 21:45:12.694. Ya, they took the seconds of the finish time to three decimal places! The finishing rate of the event was vary low. That was probably as much for the convenient drop put opportunities that the loop course presents as it was for the warm, desert heat. Results

Our current situation is that members have two passwords to forget. The general one that is the same for everyone gets you into the Members Only section of the site. Then those who have made an account here have their own (different) password. Our goal is to fix that by having everything on this new section and do away with the password that everyone forgets and is not very secure.
Step one is to migrate the members only look up form over here. We have done that. We hope you will test it and let us know if you have a problem. Be sure you are logged in and then go to the Member Lookup page. (If you really want to test it, try this link when you are not logged in. Hopefully, you will get an error.)
