Some phones, like mine, claimed that the loop was 14.9 ish miles. Phones can overestimate. Mapmyrun can underestimate and claim 13.1 miles. I would say it was 14. It's healthy to run extra, too! We love trails!!

A great, hilly run! Thanks, folks!!!! :)

QUAD LONG CREEK trail marathon
Saturday, August 3, 2013 at 6:00am will begin an East Coast epic: a zero dollar marathon. 26.2 (plus-ish) miles on TRAILS in Virginia Beach, VA.
The event (QLC) will take place at First Landing State Park.
You can join us for the 13.1 mile edition...same time...same place.
Jump in the Chesapeake Bay to cool off at the end.
Self-supported run-no ribbons, just wooden posts marking trail forks...knowing the map will help.
This would make an interesting first marathon, but I won't advise against it-it's not in my nature to do so.

Awards:                                   Maybe small, earthy ones...
