4 thoughts on “Inaugural Ruffner Mountain High Crusher Ridge 21K – Talking to Race Director Vanessa Stroud

  1. Great interview and it was a “crushing” run. Don’t come next year looking for a sissy, Family Trail run. Reminded me of the way trail races were done in the “old days”, when men were men. By the way, I cried like a little girl the whole time. Great race Vanessa and great post Suman.

  2. Tough and challenging run but that gives it personallity. Trough out the run I kept hearing the little voice in my head saying “toughen up butter cup”!

  3. Tough course but I enjoyed it the whole time. You get hills, rocks, single track trails, fire roads, boulders and more insane climbs all without driving too far. I will be back!

  4. I will be back. I loved every min.of it. Thank you Vanessa and all the wonderful people that helped bring this great trail race to light. You and Ruffer Mountain made me feel special.
    RUN4EVR,
    Cheri
