Day 3 brought us 21…or so…miles of nice, runnable trails, good climbs, warm temperatures, blue skies and a sweet swimming hole at the end. A few (ummm…a lot) of us got off trail in the first mile and added some bonus miles to our day. Probably should have paid better attention during the briefing, but bonus miles are always fun!
Trifecta accomplished! A huge thanks to the Virginia Happy Trails Running Club for planning 3 great days of trail antics. Looking forward to next year!
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!
The Virginia Happy Trails Running Club held the annual Trifecta July 4th, 5th and 6th. Three perfectly fabulous days of playing in the Shenandoah Mountains with friends, plenty of streams to cool off in and delicious recovery drinks after. Day 1 was the 13th year of doing the Browntown Run – 21 miles of fun!
