Moore Mountain Trail Festival
Despite exceptionally smoky conditions, 48 of the 71 runners who had registered for the Moore Mountain trail runs showed up and gave it their all on Sunday, Sept 3. Race organizers Amber Singh and Jeremy Morris were careful of runners' health, advising them "no one needs to be here today." A doctor was also on sight.
A big thank-you to all the volunteers who helped at this big event, as they, too, braved the smoky conditions.
This year the Moore Mountain Trail Festival included the Trails in Motion Film Festival on Saturday, followed by the races in Moore Park on Sunday. New this year: the 30K race in addition to the half marathon and 5K.
