Report

We began in Pulaski at Dora's Junction at 7:12 AM on Friday 11/27/2020 (the day after Thanksgiving and sufficiently carb-loaded) and ran towards Galax. It was a sunny day with temperatures in the 40s and 50s. We had our significant others and friends meet us along the way with aid of water and food at Allisonia, Foster Falls, Ivanhoe, and Gambetta. We saw a lot of people on horseback on the trail during the afternoon hours, which 90% of those on horseback were sober. Other than the horseback riders, there were not a lot of people on the trail on bike or foot. We completed this as the first half of a virtual 100 mile challenge.
