TrailRunner magazine spotlights Cville as a "Virginia Playground"

The October issue of TrailRunner magazine just hit newsstands and features an article on Charlottesville, which the magazine describes as "a diverse mix of talented trail runners and endless miles of singletrack."

CAT (and VHTRC) member Sophie Speidel is featured in the article, with a great picture of her motoring on the Rivanna Trail. The article includes a reference to Sophie's Winter Solstice run, along with a plug for our blog page. Way to go Sophie!

Gill and Francesca, owners of Charlottesville Running Company, also appear in the article and discuss the upcoming Trailrunner-sponsored UROC race at Wintergreen on September 24th.

The article was written by VHTRC and WUS runner Neal Gorman. Right now, the issue is available in hard-copy form only and can be picked up at Blue Ridge Mountain Sports, Charlottesville Running Company, Barnes and Noble, or by subscription.  A digital version will appear on Trailrunner's website next month.
