The 2013 3rd Annual Mountaineer Autumn Classic

Sunday, October 20th, the 3rd Annual Mountaineer Autumn Classic was held at Cooper's Rock State Park with 22 people participating.  The weather was a bit chilly but similar to last year it was beautiful in every way.

Going over the details of the course with some new friends.
Here are some pictures of those in attendance:

Weiguo Liu
Luke Evans and Nan Nan 
Jim Sheehan
Some diehards decided to run the new, challenging 9-mile loop while others opted to enjoy a nice walk on the 4-mile loop.  In either case, a good time was had by all.  There was plenty of food at the end to recharge even the most hungry stomach!  All extra food was delivered to the Bartlett House Homeless Shelter in Morgantown later that day. 

The Riley family
The total donations this year of $446 were given to the food pantry at Christian Help of Morgantown.   

In closing, I wanted to take a moment to graciously thank the following participants: Nan Nan, Jim Sheehan, Luke Evans, Adele Fenwick, Xuelong Wang, Weiguo Liu, Huan Liu and her three friends, Dick and Shelley Riley and their kids Connor, Andrew, and Kelsey, Ken Blemings, Heidi Johnson, Annie Wojciechowicz, Laura Protzman, and Erin Leatherman.  A special thanks goes out to Bingbing Wu whom without her support this run would not have taken place this year.
