Neal Gorman sets Fastest Known Time on Charlottesville's Rivanna Trail

Neal set the Fastest Known Time (FKT) on the 18.36 mile Rivanna Trail this morning in 2:09:47. After setting the record, he made a donation to the Rivanna Trails Foundation and threw out a challenge to the next person who tries to break his time. Read all about it on his blog.

 

On a side note...60+ VHTRC members made the trek south to Charlottesville in January 2005 to run the Rivanna Ring, but due to epic flooding two days before, we were re-routed off the trail on to road. Anstr and Sophie wrote accounts.

VHTRC Board - Hail and Farewell

We want to thank Quatro Hubbard and Paul Blackman for their service to the club as members of the VHTRC board.  Quatro served two terms on the board. He had several important roles, some of which he will continue, we hope.  Paul stepped forward to serve on the board when no one else would. He was very helpful in the board's work.  We know that Quatro and Paul will continue to serve the club. Thanks for all they have done.

Great Weather at Stone Mill and JFK

A Snowy Halloweeny

Reports and photos from this past weekend's Halloweeny 50 km up in the Harpers Ferry area have been rolling in.  As one of the 49 runners who did show to run in the wet and the snow (and amongst the falling tree limbs), I can't say enough about what a great job event directors' Sharon and Ted Lapkoff and their fantastic group of volunteers did.  They really embraced the challenging conditions, and made the event a great deal of fun.
