10/29/2016: Pandapas Pond, Jefferson National Forest

“Brush Mountain Breakdown” 7-mile race on the Poverty Creek Trail System in Pandapas Pond Day Use Area, Jefferson National Forest (the course was closer to 6.5 miles). This is more or less my backyard, and the course covered one of the exact routes that I run regularly: From the upper parking lot, Horse Nettle to Snake Root to Poverty Creek, back to the parking lot (56 minutes, third place).
