Actually, we had all the splits up when the last runner finished MMT on May 13. But there were errors and missing data. We have fixed the errors we could find and extrapolated the few missing times. Also, you can now see a sorted list of runners' times over each stretch of the course. (Now we know why Sean blew everyone away on the run to the finish. He was fastest over that stretch by six minutes.) These data are particularly valuable if work is boring! MMT 2012 Splits
Eva Pastalkova lowered her own event record by almost a half hour to be the top woman at the 2012 Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 mile run held in the mountains of the same name on the weekend of May 12-13. Jason Lantz won the male race. Jack Pilla broke the senior record in Beamon-like fashion. The evolving Report Page has results and links to photos. Thanks to the many who made this possible!
Angus Repper and Erika Ebright were the winners at the Hashawha Hills 50km held on February 25 in Maryland. The weather was cold and windy but not that bad, compared to previous versions of the event. RD Alan Gowen and his fine volunteers braved the cold to put on a great run. Hashawha Web page
Our friends at the West Virginia Mountain Trail Runners' club held the West Virginia Trilogy over the past weekend, October 7-9. Described as a "triptych of runs on the Eastern Continental Divide", runners are able to run a 50 km race, then a 50 miler, and then finish their long weekend up with a trail half marathon. That is roughly 95 miles of running in the Spruce Knob and Seneca Rocks area over three days. Sounds like fun, and the overall winner this year was the VHTRC's David Frazier, in just under 14 hours. First VHTRC woman to finish was Adele Fenwick. 15 runners managed to finish all three events - it would have been 16 if President Alan Gowen had not been too sick to make it to the starting line.

Jack Kurisky was the only 100-mile finisher at the "Hot TWOT" on October 1, finishing in a time of 37:50. As has become the norm for those seeking to actually finish the full 100 miles, Jack started on Friday September 30. The weather was chillier than experienced at most runnings of The Wild Oak Trail 100 in the Fall, with some snow swirling on the Big Bald section of the trail on Jack's fourth loop.
By finishing the Wasatch Front 100 miler in Utah on September 10th, David Snipes became the 36th confirmed finisher of The Last Great Race. The Last Great Race consists of the Grand Slam 100 milers (Western States, Vermont, Leadville, and Wasatch), and Old Dominion and Angeles Crest. Sniper is the only runner to complete the LGR this year, the first to finish it since 2007, the first Virginian and the first VHTRC member to complete it since Mike Bur in 2003. For extra grins and giggles, Sniper also completed MMT and the CAT 100 this year, and rumor has it he will be running Grindstone, and then one or two more before he shuts it down for this year. Congratulations, David! - Last Great Race site
