Brad Hinton (11:21), Vince Bowman (11:22) and Karsten Brown (11:54) led the 28 runners who started the SMUT 50 on October 17 at 7:00 am under cloudy skies and cool temperatures. Michele Harmon was the first woman to finish in 14:30. 17 runners ultimately finished this inaugural event that, according to Brad Hinton, is "a 50 miler than runs like a 100K."

"A handful of VHTRC individuals were at the inaugural Oil Creek 100 Trail Runs this past Saturday [October 10] - Bob Combs, Margie Hughes, Brian Musick, Hunt Bartine, Tom Sperduto (first 100) and I. Probably others that I missed. Great race. Technical course with over 17,000 feet of gain. Excellent first year event and Tom Jennings is to be commended for all of his effort as a first time RD."
On October 24, the Quad State Quad Buster will return after a several year absence. This 40++ mile run takes you through four states in one day. It is not for everyone. You will need to move relatively quickly to finish in the daylight. More information
