Highlands Sky 40 Miler
Presented by the West Virginia Mountain Trail Runners, the 6th annual Highlands Sky Trail Run took place last Saturday at the Canaan Valley Resort State Park.
This point to point course travels across some of the most rugged and beautiful terrain in West Virginia. Trail surfaces and scenery vary greatly throughout the run, as well as elevation which ranges from 2500 to 4700 feet. The course travels through the Canaan Valley, the highest large valley east of the Mississippi.
NEO Trail club members Bruce McMurray and Rich Vroboncic took part in the event this year. Bruce finished with a time of 11:08 while Rich followed close behind with an 11:18 finishing time.
