Annual 50K by the Virginia Happy Trails Running Club (VHTRC).

Overview

This is considered a difficult 50K run with over 7500 feet of vertical gain.

Description

This epic 50k takes place on Sunday, day two, of the MLK holiday weekend training runs. Start time is 8 AM, so you can sleep in for the full day on the trails that await. Traditionally, we have run a variant of the "Gap to Gap" section of the MMT course on the southern end of the Massanuttens and for the past several years, we started and ended at the so called "211 East parking". This 50k is yet another variant on that theme - only it packs a lot more of a punch.
