Training Run #2 covers much of the middle third of the Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 miler in mid-May. Due to the latest wave of the omicron variant of COVID, the course has been adjusted to avoid the need for any car shuttles, but at the same time to still provide you with a long and satisfyingly rocky experience over the trails that will be used during the MMT 100.
Entry is currently open with a limit of 65 runners. The link to apply for entry to the 2022 MMT Training Academy Run 2 is at the bottom of this page. If the event fills, a waiting list will build; never fear of you find yourself on that wait list, as events of this nature traditionally have a fairly high attrition rate from the entrants list in the days leading up to the run. So be patient and plan to run!

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.
