2024 Harbison 50k – A real test Ham Operators

This year’s Harbison 50k was a true test of preparedness and endurance of the runners and amateur radio operators alike. The Harbison 50k is unlike many other races, is a race through wooded areas, dirt roads, and difficult trails. This year, the weather made this an even harder task for all who were there. There was a soaking rain most of the day along with cold temperatures, as you can see, like the troops they are, runners and our volunteer club members made the best of it. Congratulations to all of the runners and a special thank you to the CARC members who volunteered to make this event a tremendous success.
