As part of the requirement for admittance into the Vermont 100, all registrants must volunteer for 8 hours at another ultra event. Earlier today, I completed my requirement by volunteering at the Bull Run Run 50 Miler a few hours south of here. It was a cool course...but a hot day. I was glad I was not running. I worked aid stations and gave out food and drinks to the runners. It was a lot of fun being on the other side of things.
Centreville Rd. Aid Station (Miles 7 and 11)
At the end of my volunteer time, the race director signed off on my form and it will be dropped in the mail later today. This means that it's official....I have now signed up for my first 100 miler. ......cue dramatic music....dum dum duuuuuummmm!
