Report

Although TEAM SLUG regretted moving the Redeye 50K Trail Run from its traditional New Year’s Day date to January 8th, the participation level doubled. However, since the event is a Fat Ass and the Team motto is “Start Slowly - Ease Off,” we will go back to running on January 1st next year. That should slow down the fast runners, drive away the crowd and continue to prevent the VHTRC President-for-Life from finishing.

Mother Nature and the Prince William Forest Park provided the perfect setting for a great run. The sky was clear and the starting temperature was 25 degrees, warming into the upper 40s as the day progressed.

It soon became apparent that the lead runners were actually racing instead of grazing at the aid table, another SLUG tradition. Their competition continued for the entire event, with Derrick Carr crossing the finish first in 4:12 followed by Prasad Gerard (4:13) and Scott Mills (4:17). The lead female SLUG was Selena Smart with an excellent 4:36 finish, she was followed by Regina McNamara and Carolyn Gernard. The coveted title of Official SLUG was taken by Amanda Preble, she will be awarded with a free entry in next year’s event and lifetime bragging rights. This is way too much detail for a slug run.

Following is an alphabetic list of all 59 participants, 28 of whom ran the entire 50K - 8 of the runners ran marathon distances. Bagel Bill Sublett and G-Man Grayson are listed, however, they ran the 50K on January 2nd so they could assist with the event on the 8th. Since the sign up sheet was sloppy some of the names may be misspelled and errors may be present, if so contact G-Man at: Dgrays@erols.com. Results will be submitted to Ultrarunning in the near future. Thanks go to the Brewmiester for posting the event on the VHTRC web site.
