The West Virginia Mountain Trail Runners (WVMTR) present the annual Highlands Sky Trail Run. Hosted again by Canaan Valley Resort and Conference Center, this event has a point to point course that traverses the Dolly Sods and Canaan Valley.

Race through some of the most rugged and beautiful terrain in West Virginia. Dolly Sods is an area of high elevation with windswept plains ranging from 2500 to 4700 feet elevation. Trail terrain varies from woodland paths, rock and boulder, to upland bogs, through northern hardwoods at lower elevations, to Red Spruce and heath barrens above 4000 feet.

Canaan is the highest large valley east of the Mississippi. The Valley creates the headwaters of the Blackwater River and has a unique environment composed of wetlands and uplands with vegetation characteristic of more northern latitudes. WVMTR is a permittee of the Monongahela National Forest.

There are pre-race and post race dinners. Many more details can be found on the official race site at: Highlands Sky 40-Miler Site.
