Today’s meme isn’t really even a meme … this is what was on my WTForecast app this afternoon when I went to see whether or not it would be snowing at the Stickmen Run. But it’s funny. (Note: this app frequently employs the use of colorful language.)
This week, our Strava Segment of the Week is on the Vernonia-Banks Trail, from the Manning trailhead to the Buxton trailhead. Those of you training for the Vernonina half or full may want to check the trail out ahead of your race, and there are a lot of segments along the path to fill up your trophy case. The segment Manning TG to Buxton TH is 2.89 miles and is a decent little incline, running from 225 feet to 463 feet over the last mile and a half. It’s a 1% grade, so you’ll notice it.
The current course records are held by Nick Schuetze (18:09) from June 2015 and by Kaitlyn Peale (18:18) from October 2018. 361 different Strava members have recorded a total of 802 attempts on this segment.
