Based on the success last year’s less formal family and fun run, the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce commemorated the first week of spring by hosting the inaugural Mountain Madness at Fausett Farms 15k trail run March 23. At 15 kilometers, or just over nine-miles, the course wound its way through picturesque woodlands that belied the rugged nature of a race that featured two steep, treacherous inclines, a road crossing and a pair of water crossings intermixed with horse pasture and gravel footing. Despite its daunting first impressions the race attracted more than 100 participants in pre-registration and a stream of people showing up to register on the day of the event according to volunteer Melissa Mayton.
