VHTRC Women Dominate Odyssey Races

On a bluebird late summer day at Douthat State Park, the Blue Train women represented the club in fine fashion with podium finishes in the Odyssey Trail Marathon and 40 miler. Sophie Speidel and Stephanie Wilson went 2-3 in the 40 miler, and Gaby Gorman set the female course record in the marathon with a time of 4:11. The Odyssey races include a 5- miler, half-marathon, marathon, and 40 option; each 13.2 mile loop has over 2800 feet of climb on spectacular singletrack. Results
