[Details] [Coverage] [Overall Results] [Results by Class]

Saturday's trail conditions and weather were both perfect this year for the second annual 10 mile trail run held in conjunction with the Challenge at Mountwood WVMBA races the following day. The local mountain bike group does a great job maintaining the trails and putting on the weekends events, so most the credit should go to them and to RCRC member, Dave Schultz, for directing the race through the River City Runners club.

Forty five year old Dominic Wyzomirski was the winner of the men's field, with a winning time of 1:13:11. The hilly course, that actually is closer to eleven miles, was conquered in record time by the Pittsburgh runner. Second and third place went to more familiar runners, West Union native Michael Bee and Marietta's Randy Gibbs.

The women's race was Won by Sarah Sturgill of Hurricane, followed a minute later by Mary Whitlock of Blacksburg, VA. Rounding out the Women's Overall was Charleston area stalwart Joni Adams.

All participants were impressed by the great trail conditions and well organized event.
