The team race tightened last week, with <b>Team A</b>, <b>Team D</b>, and <b>Team H</b> taking turns in the lead. With the leader now within a few hundred points of the 10,000 finish line, VRAA #5 will come to a close this week.<br><br><b>SherpaJ's</b> Team H made a pivotal move in this weekend's Richmond Marathon. Saturday, three Team H members -- <b>kruss</b>, <b>batmomm</b>, and <b>Mykemp1971</b> -- ran the full 26.2 leading the way for a VRAA-record one-day team total of 611 points. Foregoing a Van de Velde-like collapse, <b>Team H</b> will take the champion's title for VRAA #5.<br><br>
Individual performances continue to astound: Eighteen players broke the 100 point threshold over the weekend. <b>IEatHills4Meals</b> rocked at Richmond too. <b>Ksrunr</b> did us one better. He bike-run bricked his way to back-to-back 100 point days. Whew!<br><br>
The leaderboard will update each night until the champion is declared.<br><br>
Congratulations to all for your participation and endurance during the longest VRAA session to date. We’re now at Day 42; a full week longer than ever before. It is our hope that the VRAA motivated you to reach for higher heights. We’ll take a short pause in December to reorganize and reshuffle the teams. The VRAA will restart in time for New Year’s resolutions.<br><br>
Thank you captains, for your dedicated work this round. With a record number of participants, your effort allowed for timely and accurate reporting of the scores. We will enlist your help again in future rounds.<br><br>

WWHD (what would Hairy do?)<br><br>
I'm going to merely let us all imagine how Hairy would respond.<br><br>
But no, Team G does not suck.

The Anchor Steam Brewery doesn't have a tap-room per se - they do however have an pub area at the end of their tour (every weekday afternoon) where they serve full glasses (and free to boot) of their offerings. However, you need to reserve a couple weeks in advance to make sure you land a spot.<br><br>
However, near the brewery is a pretty good pizzeria (Goat Hill) where they do have Anchor Steam on tap.

In respect to my fellow teammates Team H did not relinquish 1st place-their captain (me) did not get around to reporting Tues points (b/c of three Halloween parades, two parties and trick or treat-Sorry guys) I believe with our points recorded we are still holding on....<br>
Hahoya-correct me if I'm wrong. My apologies to Team H

I'm wondering how I went from 1077 points last week to falling-off-the-list this time. Did I do something that docked me points?
