@VHTRC Trifecta Day 2 – Sophie’s Death March

Day 2 was 24 miles of the “Greatest Hits” of Shenandoah National Park. We started at White Oak Canyon, climbed to Hawksbill, stopped by Skyland, passed Stony Man, turned in at Corbin Cabin Cutoff, past Old Rag and death marched in on the Weakley Hollow Fire Road back to White Oak Canyon. A long and fun day playing in the mountains!

Vicki’s Death March – Shenandoah National Park

While many people were out shopping with the mobs in malls, I was lucky enough to be on the top of the world with my running club. Black Friday was the 9th annual running of “Vicki’s Death March”, otherwise known as the ¬†Shenandoah National Park’s “greatest hits” trail run. The run started in the Old Rag parking lot and went up White Oak Canyon to Hawksbill summit, following the AT to Skyland, Little Stony Man, Corbin Cabin, Nicholson Hollow and back to Old Rag. Lots of climbing, a fair amount of rocks, roots, leaf cover and even a little ice. ¬†It was a gorgeous day, with a bright blue sky and warmish temperatures – a perfect day to play on trail.
