    A very runnable trail, great for first timers and technical enough to stimulate seasoned trail runners. Abundance of parking right at the start. Packet pickup either the day or night before is easy. The 50k is two loops of the 15 mile trail, which means you can access your car, restrooms, or drop bag with no problem. This race is small, quiet, and simple. So glad I chose this race for my first ultra!!

    Full Disclaimer: I love random little trail race.

    A tiny little race (typically 20 to 35 finishers for the 50K), held in a small town about 30 miles outside Charleston WV. This race is co-sponsored by the West Virginia Trail Runners and the local Boy Scout Troop, with all proceeds going to the Boy Scout Troop.

    Production: great volunteers, great aid stations, informal instructions. Directions to the race and the bib pickup were slim, but if you’re resourceful, you’ll figure it out. The race director has a 10 minute announcement at the beginning of the race. The course is well marked with ribbons.

    SWAG and Awards: the shirt is optional, but it’s a Patagonia quarter zip, so worth the $20 (I think). The awards are handmade by the Boy Scout Troop – and I think they vary year to year. Because of the small field, the likelihood of winning is higher — i won the ladies race in 2018, and won a $100 gift card to Altra.

    Course: this is a challenging course. There are really limited flats, everything is up or down. With all that being said, the course is super runnable. Really great trails, and glorious single track that isn’t too technical (I never fell!).

    Bottom line: I really like this race. Everyone was super friendly and happy to have you there. There isn’t a lot of crowd support, but it’s a trail 50K. You get the trees! Warning — weather is unpredictable in WV in the late spring.

    Woo-HOO, congrats winner! And $100 in freebies from Altra, double congrats! I like the sound of this race a lot, and considering I've yet to run in West Virginia, I'll be keeping it in mind. Great job, and thanks for the enthusiastic review! LESS
