Great Weather at HAT 50km

It was a beautiful day at the 22nd HAT Run held on March 20 in northern Maryland.  Some, however, suffered from poor training brought on by earlier storms.  The top spots were pretty well dominated by Pennsylvanians. Guess they didn't get as much snow and could train more! Results are now available on the HAT Page

Elizabeth's Fat Ass 50km Report by Stephanie Wilson

From Stephanie Wilson: Recently I posted a brief comment on the VHTRC listserv with a link to photos that I took at Elizabeth Furnace 50k run. I received a number of emails subsequently from individuals who either couldn’t open the Picasa link or wished to receive a more detailed account of our run that day. I thought I’d post a race report here with (hopefully) a functional link to the photos of the run as well.

UVA - Mother of Trail Runners

Hashawha Hills Cancelled

The snow has claimed another victim.  The Hashawha Hills 50km has been cancelled due to heavy snow that makes the trail inaccessible and  parking (for 120 people, anyway) impossible.


Entrants in this year's event will receive a credit toward the 2011 entry fee.  Hopefully, the snow will have melted by then.


At right is Pam Gowen on the trail in show shoes. For more information, go to the Hashawha Hills 50km page.  Entrants should have received an e-mail. For more pictures of the snow, go to the Flickr site.
