What message do we go into the new year with?
We started this in 2017 with a suggestion to “do more” or find a new limit.
Last year was “be a buddy, find a buddy” in an effort to get more people on the trails.
This year the message is, leave it better.
How can you leave it better;
say hi to your fellow trail users
pick up trash from the trail and pack it out
sign up for a volunteer work day
kick sticks or rocks off of the trail
stop to move big sticks and logs off the trail
even go so far as to carry a handsaw with you to remove medium size trees off the trail
Whatever it is, make a difference with your time, use your trail time to leave things in better shape.
Check out the schedule of events for our 11th Roanoke Non Ultra Trail Series.
Couple things to note;
We are ordering zip up hoodies for the 1/12/19 Frozen Toe 10k.
This year’s RNUTS finishers award will be a Patagonia Classic Synchilla Jacket

In an effort to increase the usage of backcountry trails I have added a few maps to the Glenwood Horse Trail page. These maps and runs are based from the Day Creek Day Use area. This is a fantastic area with some great training routes that hold up to all kinds of weather. So when the city parks/trails are muddy and use is inadvisable, you now have a place to go that is about the same distance away. Check it out https://mountainjunkies.net/glenwood-horse-trail/
If you were unable to stay for the awards we will have them at Gilbert Chiropractic for the next two weeks – 212 East Main Street, Salem, VA
M & W – 8-11 and 3-6
T & Thurs – 10-1 and 3-6
There were some pictures taken at the start, finish and during the awards. They will be uploaded to our Facebook Page as soon as we can get them added.
Another RNUTS season has ended. What a great time! Thanks for being a part of it.
