With afternoon temps over the weekend hovering around 70°, it made for a perfect backdrop for the New Moon Rising Night Trail Run this past Saturday night on the trails at Devil’s Playground. “We had around 70 pre registrations, with others signing up the evening of the run. It was a great event,” said Woody Elliot who coordinates many running and biking events at Devils Playground. Once runners were finished they were served with tacos and all of the fixings along with Devils Backbone Brewing Beers!

Off in the distance night trail runners could be seen heading along the trail with their headlamps guiding the way. Just a glimmer of daylight remained over Three Ridges mountains in the background.

BRLM Publisher Yvette Stafford also ran in the 10K version of the race. Above she completes her first half of the race heading back out for another lap before finishing up.
