I am involved with the Charleston Distance Run and I would like to invite you to run our race this year. I know it is a road race but it is a challenging one and we all like challenges.
This year we did two new things that we hope runners will appreciate. First we lowered the entry fee for those who register early. To take advantage of the $20 early registration fee your entry must be postmarked by May 1st. We will strictly enforce that postmark date. Early entry forms are available at www.charlestondistancerun.com
Secondly, we did away with prize money and instead are giving every entrant two performance moisture management shirts, a short sleeve and a long sleeve shirt. These are great for training and racing in any weather.
This is our 38th year, we need to keep our participation numbers up in order to keep our sponsors – register early and help assure this quality race stays around for its 40th year in 2012.

The Highlands Sky 14 and 21 mile trainer yesterday, postponed from March, was the perfect day. Snow was gone save for a few drifts in the spruce shaded 4000′ ridges of Roaring Plains. Trail damage was not too bad considering the severe winter we experienced. However a trail work day is scheduled for May 1 to clear the few blowdowns and other brush we encountered.
Fifteen runners came out including 11 year old Kristian Robinette who ran the 14 mile loop with his dad Kirk. Go here for more photos, and here for a video on Roaring Plains.
The snowpack above 4000′ measures 48″, not too runnable. This is a training run not a big hike so the date is now April 10. Surely it will be better……
Here it is January 5 and the snow is piled up 3′ deep and the temp is 12.9 on my fancy digital thermo-meter, but come March 27 by golly it just might be gone. Come out to Roaring Plains and Dolly Sods for a training run on the first half of the Highlands Sky course.

We will start at the official Highlands Start at Laneville at 8:00am. There will the option for a 21 mile loop that will cover most of the first half of Highlands, or a 14 mile loop that covers a little less. You can find directions on the Highlands Sky page.
