Laurel Valley 35 Mile Run For Fun - Want To Come?


I went into work Monday as giddy as a kid in a candy shop after the Chattooga 50k on Sunday. I was already thinking ahead to my next race in July - Landsford Canal 50k. I checked my email this morning and had a note from the Chattooga RD Terri Hayes saying that she is looking for some runners to do the Laurel Valley trail run with her on Saturday June 20th. I am heading out of town to the beach on vacation tomorrow and will be back in town on Friday the 19th. My loving wife said, "go for it!" so I am all in! Terri only has one rule for this one. Everyone has to stay with at least one other runner for the entire run.

This will be my first self-supported 50k run. I'm pumped about being my own 35 mile aid station.

Grinning from ear to ear & not limping nearly as bad as I was on Monday! :]


  1. Cool! Beach first, then trail run. Sounds great.

  2. Have fun at the beach. I'll have to settle for the pool.

  3. Hey Jason, sorry that run got cancelled anyway I see you are running Landsford hopefully I will meet you there. I ran the 5k candlelight last night in Greenville I thought I was gonna die it was like 94 when we started. Anyway hope to meet you at a race soon. I see you played football in college my son Spencer is playing at Southside Christian gonna be a sophomore trying to get him to run a little with me to get in football shape but he tells me it doesn't help to run long according to his coach. Let me know what you think.
    Thanks Josh

  4. Terri canceled it or you didn't run?

    I think I'm running 15 miles on the AT from Hwy 421 to Damascus, VA (a relatively easy section) this weekend. I'll be up near there anyway.
