YHC had a great time running with the guys from Rutland this morning. Bro Code was the pace this morning which allowed for many topics of conversation including the BRR, Grandfather Mountain, running the Grand Canyon rim to rim, Zion National Park, Four Corners, High School Cross Country, and TYA’s CSAUP. Of course the topic that was discussed the most was the Barkley Fall Classic which Swallow will be participating in on September 15. Although this is not the full Barkley Marathon that is held in the Spring, the Barkley Fall Classic is organized by the same guy and is approximately a 50K. Good luck with this event Swallow.
Within a few weeks, the route that was run this morning will be accessible from the Tomato Run once the Atlee Road extension is complete. This will give the Tomato Run many more options.
