2020 event modified for remote participation
July 24th – 26th, 2020
Due to the ongoing global health pandemic caused by COVID-19, the 2020 Annual Club Meeting has been modified for health and safety. No ‘in-person’ event will occur. Instead, a remote meeting using the video conferencing software Zoom will be held. Please register online at RSU to receive more information about the scheduled Zoom meeting.
As the era of our traditional January Annual Meeting in Helvetia has come to and end, our board has decided to embark on a new adventure and tradition. We will meet at Spruce Mountain South on Spruce Knob for two nights and three days of fun, fellowship, running, and club related meeting/s. Club members, please join us for this free club event at our State’s highest mountain.
Spruce Mountain South is a tract of private land that adjoins the Monongahela National Forest land just south of Spruce Knob. Many miles of excellent trail in the Spruce Knob Recreation Area are minutes away. The relatively undeveloped property is very suitable for tent camping. There is a pavilion, electricity, water, toilet and shower facilities.
This is a WVMTR Club Event that has no registration fee, but participants must register on RunSignUp so there is an e-signed waiver and emergency information available. Members and non-members are welcome!
Joining WVMTR is not necessary to participate in this event, but we encourage you to support our events by becoming members. Yearly membership is only $10 and allows us to offer these wonderful free club events. Become a member today at RunSignUp or visit our membership page to learn more!
