The 2020 Charlottesville Ten Miler will be Saturday, March 28!

Hope you can watch this wonderful documentary, Seats at the Table, directed by our Corner neighbor Chris Farina, about how one UVa professor creatively bridges the world of UVa students and a group of inmates in an academic setting within the walls of a local prison complex.
Come join our UVa neighbors for the 4th Year 5K...the smart tradition!
Join us Monday, October 28 at 6:30 p.m. for a meet and greet with Vin Lananna, the legendary Oregon and 2016 US Olympic coach, who is the new head coach for UVa Track and Field and Cross Country. We’re thrilled to have him here!

Well after 13 days and 196 miles, our walk of a lifetime came to a bittersweet end, as we covered the last 18 miles through the lush heather of the North York Moors and down along the breathtaking coastline cliffs to the old smugglers village of Robin Hood's Bay, where we threw our two stones, we had carried from the Irish Sea, into the North Sea. Even though we were thrilled to have gone from Coast to Coast across England, crossing through three stunning National Parks along the way, we're sad to set aside our walking sticks. We will forever cherish the memories of this incredible journey and we now have an even deeper appreciation of the accomplishments of those who have hiked much longer distance walks, like the Appalachian Trail. We thank all of you for following along with us and we look forward to seeing you when we get home... we miss you!
Mark and Cynthia
45 miles in two days, over the rolling heather filled Yorkshire Moors, ended with 6 steep climbs up and down a series of mountains, with breathtaking views all the way back to Richmond. Mark’s lifelong fear of heights has been seriously put to the test during this amazing journey.
Only two days left, with a marathon to cover until we reach the North Sea!
Days 8&9 of our Walk across England took us past the 100 mile mark and through some of the most beautiful countryside into James Herriot’s Yorkshire Dales.
Days 6 and 7 took us over 32 beautiful miles of rolling hills as we left the Lake District and started our journey into the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales. One stretch took us over 8 miles of hopping around three foot deep bogs! Tonight we’ll sleep in the village of Keld, our halfway point of the 190 mile walk!
Day 5 was a long but absolutely beautiful 20 mile walk up one last mountain of the Lake District and along a stunning lake as we worked our way to the tiny village of Shap, as we passed the ruins of Shap Abbey.
