2. THE SIXTH ANNUAL RED DRESS RUN Saturday, October 2, 1999 3:00PM
At times I get requests for "unusual events", so I've featured a lot of trail
runs this year. Well, there is an outfit called the "Hash House Harriers"
who has a focus more on the consumption of alcoholic beverages than posting
fast times. This is one of their better known events, featured in the Wall
Street Journal among other notable publications.
Time: Registration begins at 1:30 p.m. so come early and have a beer.
Hares away at 3:00 p.m.
Start: Lulu's New Orleans Cafe, 1217 22nd Street, NW (22nd and M Streets),
Cost: $35 if postmarked after September 4 but before September 25
(includes a Bag of Goodies with a Red Dress Run '99 T- shirt
while they last and tags that are not personalized)
$40 after September 25 (includes giveaways as available on a first
come first served basis)
What you get:Beer! A unique Red Dress Run T-shirt! Beer!
Other great giveaways! Contests for best dressed! Great food! Did I
mention: Beer! Dancing!
Another chance to wow the natives and tourists by running around DC with a
few hundred of your closest friends in Red Dresses!
Other Important Stuff to Know:
RED DRESS is MANDATORY! Don't even THINK about showing up
This is an A to A run (which means we are starting and ending at the
same place). However, since you may be doing some drinking - say it
isn't so - take the Metro.
You will be able to change into and/or out of your Red Dress at Lulu's
and can leave your hash bag there during the run.
Dogs are NOT welcome, so leave your's at home, please.
Register early (before September 4). It's the best deal and it's the only
way to ensure getting your complete Bag of Goodies, including a
T-shirt, personalized name tag, and all the other great stuff we have in
Now it's time to register. How? Print out the Registration Form, fill it out
mail it and your check payable to "DC Area RDR" to:
3330 N. Kensington Street
Arlington, VA 22207

Metro station on the Orange or Blue Line and 5 blocks from the Dupont
Circle Metro station on the Red Line. Or get more detailed directions here.

5. CONESTOGA TRAIL RACE REPORT
On a perfect Sunday morning, Rick Bingham, Jim Knost, birthday girl Virginia
Poole and I piled in my car at 7:30 to drive up to Southern Pennsylvania for
the Conestoga Trail Run. A race whose application states " a fall is
probable, an injury is possible " is obvoiusly going to be a difficult race.
Little did we know how difficult.
The ride lasted barely over an hour and we saw a few Amish in horse and buggy
on the side of the roads.
We parked at the finish line, registered and joined a couple busfulls
of other mentally unbalanced adventure seekers. The ride to the start was
raucous as we all wondered what lay ahead.
The race started as race director Bill Smith let off a cannon like
blow from his shotgun. For a couple hundred yards we ran on a flat trail
through the woods. Then we started to climb. After cresting the first
runnable hill we descended and came upon race director Smith who grinned
deviously as he directed us to turn up a side trail which required scrambling
and grabbing trees and rocks to move forward. A few more hills and then the
water stop of 2 1/2 miles. When my watch read 28 minutes, I knew my hopes of
a 10 mile PR were dashed. The next 4 miles involved beautiful scenery, many
other climbs, descents and scrambles over rocks, around trees and a stream
crossing or two just to keep things interesting.
A brutal climb led to the 7 mile mark and a water stop at a location
aptly named " the pinnacle". Near cardiac arrest, I stopped there for
multiple glasses of water and an amazing view of the Susquehanna River.
Volunteers promised the hardest hill was over.
The last three miles passed more easily as running was actually more
possible and we had some flat stretches of up to 100-200 yards. To say the
least, a trail race does not have mile marks. Somehow I sensed the end was
near as we descended to one final stream crossing and the last killer hill
climb. I heard noises coming from a park and fortunately I was not totally
delusional as it was indeed the park and the finish line. I crossed the
finish line in 2:09, breaking the elusive 13 minute mile barrier.
After drinking plenty of water and seeing I was not bleeding
profusely, my thoughts turned to my fellow Baltimore trail runners. Are they
alive? Are any of them lost? Before I could really start to worry, Virginia
sprinted through the line with a smile that made people wonder if she was
really happy or just senseless from all the hills. She informed me she had
passed Jim and Rick and both were alive and moving forward. Jim shortly came
in followed by billygoat Bingham.
The post race food was quickly inhaled as we swapped trail stories and
compared scratches and abrasions. The awards followed. The winner ran 1:37.
He was the ONLY runner to run under 10 minute miles. The awards were unique
medal plaques with an elevation map of the course attached to a flat rock.
Virginia placed second in her age group as the crowd sung happy birthday to
her. We thanked the race director and piled into the car for the ride home.
On the ride home, we all agreed we would do this race again. As a
sidenote, Rick also regaled us with tales of how he was hit in the head by a
hammer at a young age and how he was " run over by a bulldozer". For those of
you who know Rick, these stories might explain alot. To close, it was a
great day and would be a fun off-road experience next year for any runner.
