Monthly Reminder, 5/1/2011, 12:00 pm
Reminder from: DenverTrailRunners Yahoo! Group Title: Monthly Reminder Date: Sunday May 1, 2011 Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Repeats: This event repeats every month. Location: How DTR works Notes: This is a monthly reminder about the Denver Trail Runners (DTR) and how it works.
DTR is a group for people who run trails in the Denver area. DTR is free. It's all volunteer. So with 2,000+ people on this list, it would be impossible to respond to each individual question about DTR. The most common questions are answered here and on our web site. Please take a minute or two to read the info and familiarize yourself with how we work.
In this message:
* Messages – Yahoo and Facebook
* Maps, Directions and other resources
* Questions, comments, suggestions
There are several runs throughout the week. If you don't find one you like, start one, and promote it through DTR.
The main group run is on Thursday evenings. This has been going on since 2000. It's year round. Everyone is welcome.
Typical turnout is anywhere from just a handful of hearty (foolish) folks during a blizzard in the winter, to 40 or more during the summer months. There's a wide variety of ages and abilities at the runs.
The main group, usually starting at 6:15pm, has the widest range of runners, from mid-30s 10k runners, to 60+ 10k runners, and those who hike most of the uphills; from early 20s to 70s. The early group is primarily mid-pack runners. Anyone is welcome at either group. The nature of these groups changes over time.
Information about all runs will be sent out via Yahoo.
Other runs and events happen periodically, when someone decides to organize one. Anyone is welcome to call for a run. All you have to do is to send a message to the group with the time, place, length (either time or mileage), approximate pace(s), and brief description of the trail (if it's not one on our web site). With over 2,000 on the Yahoo list, chances are that you'll find takers, although it may take a few weeks for a group to develop.
There are two ways to communicate with the group – Yahoo and Facebook.
Yahoo: Primarily for announcing runs and events.
