Another "Gate-to-eight, times two," adventure
On Saturday, February 25, NEO Trail Club members David Peterman and Lloyd Thomas were among four runners to add their name to the list of finishers of the Ohiopyle 50k "Gate-to-eight, times two," challenge.
An overnight dusting of snow provided decent footing with cold temps on top of the ridges. The group ran together for the first gate-to-eight in 3h 25m before heading out for the second trip.
Peterman finished in a FKT of 6 hours, 52 minutes on the double out-and back course. LT and Vince Rucci completed the challenge in 7:01 and Dave Wank in 7:09.
