By proclamation of the Cheat Mountain Moonshine Madness runners, ”Tribal” aid station #3 captured the Aid Station Champion Award at the 50 mile race this weekend. RD Adam Casseday instigated this healthy competition causing some prerace smack and serious planning by aid station captians.
The competition was stiff but appreciative runners have spoken and settled the challenge. AS #4/6 captian Bill Potts was incredulous as he was certain they would be holding this 1st annual award.
I guess our torch lit entrance, warming bonfire, homemade soup and snacks, tribal music, and enthusiastic runner care is what runners recognized said AS #3 captian Dan Lehmann. We had a great time setting up the remote station on the banks of the Shaver Fork. Here Michelle, Steve and JL are getting ready for runners to arrive.
Adam Casseday presents award to AS#3 members Michelle Price, Dan Lehmann and JL Brown. Fourth member Steve Hite not present.
Frozen Sasquatch Trail, a new race on a familiar course. Kanawha State Forest outside Charleston is not necessarily known for deep snows, but in January you can expect anything. Race Director Mike Dolin has put together your first ultra of 2010. Come chase the Sasquatch.

A good time was had by all in attendance at the annual WVMTR Camping Weekend at Watoga. We were blessed with great weather on Saturday for running, fishing, swimming, and excessive eating. Sunday’s torrential downpoor made us all thankful for the roofs over our heads when we returned home.
Here are few pictures I took from the run on Saturday (click here) If anyone else has some pictures they would like to share, please pass them along or post/link them below.

Mark your calendar for the WVMTR 8th Annual Camp and Run Weekend. This club run was our first organized group run and the weekend continues to be a great get together. Traditionally, this event was held at Seneca Rocks with a run of the North Fork Mountain Trail. Last year Bradley Mongold and Adam Casseday’s epic run of the Allegheny Trail took them through Pocahontas County and Watoga State Park. Someone suggested that the club host the Annual Club Camp and Run weekend at Watoga, and the idea stuck. So this year we’re mixing things up!
Make your reservation early. We are limited to 70.
This year come to Watoga State Park to meet old and new friends, run on portions of WV’s Allegheny Trail, tube the Greenbrier River, fish for trout, bike on the rail trail, and enjoy a great potluck post run feast. There are lots to do for everyone, runners and non-runners. Hope to see all you new members out there! Watoga State Park‘s 10,100 acres are located in the mountains of Pocahontas County just 14 miles south of Marlinton, West Virginia.
