    The Jackson River Scenic Trail Marathon is held on one of the most scenic trails in the country.  The Jackson River Scenic Trail follows its namesake river, winding its way between Intervale, just north of Covington, to Smith Bridge Trail Head following an old railroad bed of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (Hot Springs Branch) and passes through small communities, cultivated fields, and small patches of woodland along the way. It's common to see wildlife from the trail (birds, turtles, raccoons, rabbits, ground hogs, and deer).  Our course is on the smooth crushed gravel surface of The Jackson River Scenic Trail. The trail is mostly flat with some light hills. All finishers will receive a medal.  Strollers will be allowed in the 5k event and will start in the back of the group at the start line.  The course is certified by USATF as a Boston Marathon qualifying marathon race. Coinciding with the annual Covington Cork and Pork Festival BBQ in Covington, VA everyone is encouraged to stay following the race and visit this Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event.  While the barbeque will stand front and center as the centerpiece of this festival, there will be entertainment, a wine tasting event, and children activities.

    The Ricky Tims Master Class Quilt Retreat offers a comprehensive quilt curriculum for all quilters. This customized event will teach, encourage, inspire, and will most certainly keep you entertained. Ricky demystifies seemingly complex concepts, and teaches mastery of unique techniques. The sessions cover improvisational patchwork, no-pins precision curved piecing, design guidelines, color theory, dyeing basics, and machine quilting tips that work for both domestic and long arm. You will learn beautiful outline appliqué and innovative piecing techniques—most of which don’t require a quarter-inch seam! Ricky’s goal is to change how you think when it comes to quilting. He will help you to reevaluate your quilting experience and give you the ability to define who you are as a quilter. The seminar will benefit all quilters—beginners or experienced—traditional or art. In addition to the methods and techniques being taught, there will be plenty of fun projects/patterns for you to consider. Thursday, February 18, 3:00pm to 7:00pm Includes a meet and greet and dinner. Friday, February 19, 8:30am to 8:00pm Includes breakfast, lunch and dinner and evening session.
