Up on Hammond Hill yesterday, doing some of the ThomB course (plus some bushwacking and off-trail as usual) I encountered three other trail runners (plus two groups of walkers) and it occurred to me that probably we won’t be able to have an actual ThomB this year – my favourite race and a tribute to a friend (not many of us still around who knew and ran with Thom Bugliosi). So in the spirit of Virtual Skunk maybe we could hold a Virtual ThomB? We would not all meet at the starting line on May 13! We would each run the Thom B at a time/date of our choosing… and if we encountered another runner doing the same (or, just out for a run) we’d keep a good social distance – do NOT pass close by, one runner steps completely off the trail.
This way we would (1) continue the tribute to Thom B, (2) get out on the Hammond Hill trails. Thoughts?
