2023 Report

January 1, 2023  •  Quantico, VA

76 starters, 31 finishers

Redeye RD Dave Woll

Another Redeye is in the books!

The runners head out after the pre-run brief.

We appeared to have a total of about 84 runners on the course, and of those, 31 who ran the entire distance (3 loops for 50k). John Oplinger was our first male finisher and first VHTRC finisher, with a fast time of 4:30. Emily Flynn was our first female finisher with a sparkling time of 5:24. The course records did not fall, but these are still impressive starts to the New Year!

We could not have asked for a more perfect day for running – I think it has been a while since we have had this run without cold, rain, or snow. The temperature got up to near 60, early hints of fog gave way to abundant sunshine, and after the first loop I think everyone lost a layer of clothing due to how quickly it warmed up.

Overall the trails were in good condition for running and it seemed there were only a few slips and tumbles throughout the day. This is always a fun run and a great way to start out the year for what will become a busy VHTRC winter, with the MMT training runs coming up, Waterfall, BRR Training Run 1, Hashawha Hills … just to name a few. It was great seeing everyone out there and I am already looking forward to next year’s Redeye!

“DNS” translates into “too hungover to make the drive out to Prince William Forest Park to run on New Year’s morning” (we assume)
