Vicki’s Death March

An annual Black Friday run – Vicki’s Death March is a VHTRC Fat Ass event – 25ish miles of the “best of” Shenandoah National Park. Starting at the Old Rag parking lot and continuing to White Oak Canyon, Hawksbill, Little Stony Man, Skyland, Corbin Cabin and Nicholson Hollow, and ending up back in the parking lot of Old Rag where post-run beverages and festivities wait! This year there was considerable ice and snow on the trail which prompted several of us to detour from Skyland taking the Old Rag Fire Road back to the parking lot to avoid ice on Corbin Cabin and Nicholson Hollow. We ended up with 22 miles of glorious trail running with friends on a cold winter day. Absolutely the best way to spend Black Friday.
