Racing down the hills at Chestnut Ridge Park
Sure the fog was thick and the humidity was heavy, but then again the temperatures were mild, the rain held off, and the course was almost all downhill. iPlayOutside certainly appreciated the great turn-out for this event's third year, and that will certainly help make a nice donation to West Virginia Track Against Cancer possible.

The men's field was packed with great competition, which sent the race out fast. This may have been what caused a minor runner pile up at the start of the race. There was no need for medical assistance, all the runners made it out alive.

The dynamic duo of Justin (14:54) and Josh Simpson (15:18) made it all the way from Oak Glen to show West Virginia high school runners what they are up against this fall. Larry Taylor (15:31) wasn't up for the Simpson challenge, as the twins managed to hold him off for a one-two punch.

What goes down must come up?
The women's race was decided early, with race director Heather Bury taking it out hard. Bury managed to better her time from last year by 33 seconds with a 16:23. Johanna Fischer claimed second place with a time of 18:27, and Sallie Beth Johnson rounded out the top three in 18:42.

For the first year, iPlayOutside decided to include a walk division. Terry Horn took the inaugural men's title in a time of 27:53. The top woman for the walk was Janet Hardesty in 34:53.

No fair! Four legs!
Thanks to our many sponsors, there were plenty of random prizes and medals to go around. iPlayOutside would like to thank Pfizer, Chestnut Ridge Park, and the Morgantown Road Runners. Without our sponsors this race wouldn't have been possible. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year, for an even better fourth annual Run for Men's Health.
