This sounds awesome! Looks like I'm a little late for this year :(. How did it go? Any more information for 2011? A website? Pictures?

Thanks for the links! I just realized that the A-100 was the same day as the Rachel Carson Trail Challenge down in Allegheny County. I bet the A-100 would really take off if the date were moved so that hikers could do both....

Hay ya Soad ,,, next year will be about the same time but we will co-ordinate with the RC and others so all can join. The turn out this year was great for the first time. Even though no one did the complete 100 miles, everyone had fun and learned allot. Next year will be better for the hikers. I will post more info as we get closer to the date.

Sounds like fun - I'd give it a go if I were closer.
