Running his first-ever ultra trail race, Aaron Riddle with Team Running Riddles completed this 50K to cross Maryland off the state marathon list.
Not knowing what to expect in his first 5K since July, Aaron set a 10-second PR at the 20th Annual Thanksgiving Day Race in Stephens City, VA.
Aaron performed better than expected in Winchester VA’s annual half marathon despite a back injury suffered two days prior to the race.
To cross state number seven off the list, Aaron tackled his most challenging marathon to date, the very hilly and tough Morgantown, WV Marathon.
A Saint Patrick’s Day 5K race through Old Town Winchester, VA which saw Aaron (proudly wearing a UMBC hoodie) earn his first-ever overall place finish.
This 5K, the sixth in a series of eight winter races by Shenandoah Valley Runners, featured a fast downhill start with plenty of uphills afterwards.
Caitlin and Aaron entered as “Team Running Riddles” for this team-up 5K at Strasburg High School (part of Shenandoah Valley Runners Winter Race Series).
Aaron and Caitlin bundled up and were on hand for the Ugly Runner (Sweater) 5K, the first in a series of winter races hosted by Shenandoah Valley Runners Club.
It was a beautiful cold November morning for one of the area’s most popular races as Aaron and Caitlin ran the Thanksgiving Day 5K for fun.
We donned some quick costumes and hit the trail for this 5K fun run with obstacles and challenges mixed in through Sky Meadows State Park.
