[RC] Vermont 100 - Greenall

3:50 AM and it the weather gods dumped 5 minutes of rain on 350 runners waiting for the start. ?Didn't seem to dampen their spirits as at 4AM they cheered as they started their journey over 100 miles of Vermont to the music of Chariots of Fire. ?Wow. ?5AM started 38 100-mile horses who will catch the back of the runners within 5 miles and travel with the run for the rest of the day. ?Cloudy and humid at 8AM as riders approach the first hold.
Over 60 landowners open their land and trails for this event. ?Many have groomed their trails over the last week just for this event. ?Great thanks to Green Mountain Horse Associate who stepped in to repair a key trail at the start, the work completed yesterday afternoon! ?Both riders and runners will be treated to Galaxy Hill, The Sound of Music, and cross the?Appalachian?trail before Hold #2. ?
