"The Cherokee Runners (pictured above) held the 2012 Moccasin Run from Big Cove to Cherokee yesterday. I was a volunteer at one of the aid stations and did not run. My husband, Sean, ran and had a great time. Everyone enjoyed it very much even though it was very cold. More than one runner grew ice on their hair from sweat and cold combined."
At the Mount Mitchell Challenge 40 Miler, Allie Hustead ran an amazing race to finish 2nd place in 6:25. This was Allie's 1st Ultra Marathon! Brian Simpson finished in 6:33.
In the Black Mountain Marathon, Jerad Crave set a new Course Record (3:09) on his way to the overall win! Dave Workman ran his 2nd marathon in 2 weeks finishing 3rd place overall & 1st Master's runner. On the women's side, Keelin Schneider took the overall female title with training partner Karen Ostergaard finishing in 2nd place.

"We ran the South Mtn 17k (actually 12.6 miles or slightly over 20k according to the trail mileage posted by the Forest Service) on Saturday.
Eve finished in 2:18:59 and 2nd in the 45-49 AG Female
Bart finished in 1:48:38 and 1st in the 65-69 AG Male and 19th overall.
Amber Moran chick'd the entire field and won overall in 1:25:51.
Great course and nicely marked, beautiful weather and the event was well executed by the GoRunTrails group."

"Saturday’s 10 miler in Surgoinsville, TN. I got a 2nd place in my age group. It was a windy and hilly course. I ran the 10 miles with my Daughter side by side. It was a training run for the both of us and I was surprised I got a prize."
