Our first race was October, 2016 on the Slopes of Western Massanutten.  We had over 40 runners participate.


Our second race was April of this year.  It was a 5.8 mile Moonlight Run on the Western Slope.  The course was marked glow sticks,  and the runners were cheered as they ran through a Boy Scout Encampment not far from the finish.
