Reports

After a 3.6 mile jog up Moreland Gap Road, reach the Massanutten Trail at Moreland Gap. On to Short Mountain, where you’ll get to kick the rocks all the way to Edinburg Gap (AS #2, mi. 11.0). A long slog up Waonaze Peak is followed by a longer traverse of Powell Mountain to Woodstock Tower (AS #2, mi. 19.2). If you still have legs, the last 4 miles are a downhill delight.

Club Event Participant Medical Policy

This is an event with very real risks to your well being. The VHTRC does not provide medical care for runners at this event. Runners are responsible for their own health, safety, and well being at this event. No doctors, nurses, or emergency medical technicians, or anyone with any medical training are available along the course, at any aid station, or at the finish. The club does not supply any medical goods or services, including bandages, splints, antiseptic, or Ibuprofen or any other drugs to maintain the health of runners. Physical, medical, and emergency care is the runners' responsibility. In case of an emergency, we will endeavor to get local emergency personnel to an injured runner as soon as possible. Since most of our events are in remote areas, medical care may be far away in distance or time. Each year, runners finish — or are forced to drop out — with scrapes, deep cuts, hematomas, dislocations, and sprains. Runners have experienced cuts, bruises, bee stings, and asthma attacks. This is an event with very real risks.
