CAT to run Umstead 100 Mile Endurance Run

Bob Clouston -- Getting it done on
the trail.
CAT veteran Bob Clouston will head to Raleigh, NC this week for Saturday's running of the 21st Umstead 100-Mile Endurance Run. He will be traveling with a CAT crew made up of Marc Griffin and Christian Dahlhausen.

The Umstead 100 consists of a 12.5-mile loop run eight times in Umstead Park, located not far from the Raleigh-Durham airport. Bob, a seasoned ultramarathon trail runner and marathon road runner, will be attempting his first 100-miler with this race. Bob has tracked his training ups and downs (including two shoulder-dislocating falls that occurred off the trail) on his own blog, Trail Tripper's Running Adventures, which is a great read for those of us that might prep one day for a 100-miler.

Marc and Christian will be at the start-line aid station to lend crewing help throughout the race, and will also help pace Bob near the end. There is also talk that Bob's adventure will be live-blogged or updated on Facebook by his crew.

Big shout out to Bob.Good luck!

CAT Fourth Anniversary Gathering

We recently passed the 4th anniversary of the founding of the CATs and believe it’s time for a celebration of this milestone! Come join us this Sunday (3/22) for beer and pizza at Dr. Ho’s Humble Pie in North Garden starting around 5:45-6:00 pm.

Christian will also be leading a group run before Dr. Ho’s on the 10K course in Batesville. The group run would start around 4:30 pm, most likely at the Batesville United Methodist Church on Plank Rd. David will skip the run (not sure he’ll be up for the Batesville hills the day after the Terrapin 50K) and will plan to be at Dr. Ho’s by 5:30 pm to hold a table.
