The Catawba Run-Around is a celebration of trail running in the Old Dominion. While most of the participants are associated with the Virginia Happy Trails Running Club (VHTRC), this run is not an official VHTRC event. Rather, it is a loosely organized opportunity for people passionate about trail running to gather for a weekend of fellowship.
The run will be held on Saturday March 4, 2017. It is a 35-mile loop on the Appalachian Trail (AT), west of Roanoke, VA. The run is
It’s a fun-filled weekend in store for you — from a day of running a spectacular section of the AT to eating at the Homeplace (legendary restaurant among thru-hikers), I believe this weekend will be the highlight of your ultra calendar.
My intent is to keep this run low-key and intimate — basically it’s a gathering of trail-running friends. This is not an official event; please do not advertise this run! Entry will be limited to 40 or so runners. Unless you can convince me otherwise, you must have completed at least one trail 50-miler. I sincerely hope you are able to join us for a weekend of trail fellowship (and a little running).
