Scott Quirico's thoughts:

This is a great low-key, small, West Virginia semi-trail race. The rural course feels relaxed and has some interesting parts through historic towns and bettlefields. Half the course is on the dirt/gravel C&O Towpath in Maryland, so that and the general vibe before, during and after the race made it feel like a laid-back trail race. There were plenty of aid stations with friendly volunteers supplying water, sports drink and gels. After the flat 1st half, the 2nd half has some significant but not difficult WV hills which makes the course and scenery nicely varied.

Finishing on the football field was nice, and then hanging around for pizza, fruit and protein bars before walking right across the street for a beer garden party (1st drink was included but had to purchase bar food). I walked away with a long sleeve tech shirt, water bottle, pint glass, and handmade ceramic medal that fit the tone of the race perfectly.

I would do it again if I were looking for a local, low-key semi-trail race.
