The PB&J 50K lucked out this year. Runners experienced gorgeous fall weather, with temps in the low 50s at the start. The PB&J start and finish location switched from the Pine Grove Shelter (adjacent to the Prince William Forest Park Visitor Center) to the Telegraph Pavilion this year. This resulted in ample parking for all the runners, the opening up of the lots in the previous race location to the usual flood of Saturday hikers out on a wonderful fall day. The move to Telegraph Pavilion necessitated only a slight adjustment to the course. The start and finish of each loop now follows the Laurel Loop trail for 1.40 miles to the iconic suspension bridge crossing Quantico Creek. Additionally, this year the Mawavi AS was relocated to the intersection of Mawavi Road and the South Valley Trail. This meant that runners no longer had to climb the 1/2 mile gravel road out and back to reach this initial aid station on each loop.

70 runners lined up to start the 6th annual PB&J 50k, with 63 finishers completing the entire course. This is the highest number of finishers to date! Despite the favorable fall weather conditions, no event records were broken. Of course, the new course is longer, so the old Pine Grove-based PB&J course records may be out of reach for runners now running closer to 32 miles out of Telegraph Pavilion.

Marcus Penner finished 1st place overall with a time of 4:53. Marcus ran in 3rd place for the 1st loop behind A.J. Cillo. A.J. finished second for the second time at the PB&J 50k, as he finished the 2014 race in 2nd place with a time of 4:35:00. Newcomer Anthony Johnson was the front runner for the first 16 mile loop. Anthony was overtaken by the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place runners on the way to Mawavi Road for the 2nd loop. He made it to a strong 5th place overall finish.

First place female, Carol Cohen, cruised to the finish in 6th overall, with a time of 5:45. First loop leader Kristen Serafin held on to finish in 2nd place among the 28 female starters, 7th overall.
