The 2010 Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 lottery took place today and 180 individuals were selected through a random process involving the closing number of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Click here to read about this fair and interesting system that the Virginia Happy Trails Club uses to determine its starting field.
Of the lucky (or unlucky - however you look at it!) 180 runners selected today, there were 4 N.E. Ohio Trail Club members in this group - Jim Harris, Nick Billock, Tanya Cady, and Dave Peterman. Now, individuals out of this group of 180 must mail in their check by January 4th to become official. If not, individuals on the waiting list will take their spot.
