is a wonderful trail race in Jefferson Memorial Forest. The race was
started by Eric Grossman several years ago. At that time there was only
a 50k and just a few of us. It was a challenge and so became known as
the hardest 50k around. When Eric moved Brenda Gutman and Joan Wood
took over, adding the 15 miler. The race continued to grow and when
Brenda moved I took over. The race has changed over the years due to
changes in the trails. Scotts Gap was closed several years, the red
trail changed last year and this year there is a new Yost trail. This
remains a hard course but Yost will now be a fast section to run
because the trails are wider with less incline. Last year we added a 6
miler for those who would like to try trail running or just want a
weather has been cold and snowy to warm and mild. I love the snow
because the trail is so beautiful then. Any weather I think you will
enjoy this race. We serve hot coco and warm soups afterwards.
Kirk has done so much work on the trails and helped with planning the
course for many years. He has a blog that keeps updates and information
about the race. llth50.blogspot.com/ Any questions feel free to ask.
First 200 people to sign up for the 50k or the 15 miler will receive Buffs.
