Carolyn Completes Monticello's Montalto Challenge!

Bright and early on Saturday morning, Carolyn with our friends Joyce and Ken and more than 100 other athletes ran/walked the 3.1 miles and 1,000 vertical feet from the beginning of the Saunders-Monticello trail to the top of Montalto.  Finishing in record time, they were greeted at the summit by Scottish bagpipers, playing “Oh Danny Boy” and “Auld Lang Syne” for the out-of-breath and cardio-challenged (Naturally Carolyn hardly broke a sweat).   

It’s always invigorating to visit Montalto: the views of Monticello, the Blue Ridge Mountains, the University of Virginia and Charlottesville are spectacular.

We hope you'll join us for next year's race!
