FLINTSTONE, Md., July 2, 2013 — As the heat and humidity oppresses runners around the Mid-Atlantic this month and next, Fire on the Mountain 50K race director Kevin Spradlin can’t help but look towards the not-too-distant future. On Oct. 27, the date set for the 4th annual Fire on the Mountain 50K and 2-person relay (fueled by Sheetz), cooler weather will undoubtedly prevail in Green Ridge State Forest.
In that fashion, the Potomac Highlands Distance Club has finalized the training schedule for the 2013 event. Be sure to read the rules and regulations for these self-supported, no-cost training runs. This year, there are seven planned training runs – so c’mon out and hit the trails!
What: Training schedule for this year’s 50K and 2-person relay
When: See schedule (below) for dates and meet-up times
Where: See schedule for date-specific routes
What else: All training runs are self-supported. Bring and carry what you need. Carry in, carry out. Leave no trash on the trails or in the woods, please. Aside from these dates, other days (such as weekdays) also are possible if sufficient interest is shown. As in 2012, RSVP by Facebook or email – firstname.lastname@example.org – is encouraged. If no one RSVPs, the RD might not show up. Other than 1, there is no minimum requirement for this schedule to go on as planned. It is optional for runners to go further than each day’s planned route, but please be flexible in transportation arrangements on site. It’s worked pretty well in past years.

Directions: * Take Exit 62 off I-68. * Take 144/National Pike West. * Turn left onto Old Williams Road. * Turn left onto Black Sulphur Road. * Turn right onto Wallizer Road. * Meet-up area is Mountain Bike trailhead on left.

Let’s use they first date, July 28, to demonstrate how this will work. About two weeks before each training run, the meet-up time and location, as well as planned distance for the day, will be finalized and will be posted on this page. Each week, the meet-up location will be provided as well as a link to a Google map (just plug in your starting address for convenience). This is the official page for all things related to FOTM training runs for this cycle.
