      1. The mandate that you must run the prescribed routes has been found to be unconstitutional. You can run any route you want. Just tell us if you will be running a different route before the start.
      2. DTR will still be required to accept runners of all abilities regardless of pre-existing injuries.
      3. You will no longer be required to eat any broccoli in salads or other dishes at DTR parties.
      4. We will require that anyone running with DTR either be a dues paying member of the club, or pay into a new fund set up by Jeffco OS.
      5. Anyone 
      6. Jeffco OS is also considering some additional changes. They will let us know sometime in June.
       
      Also, because of the recent fires and extremely dry conditions, Jefferson County Open Space has implemented the following new rules for all trail users this season.
      1. All BBQ and fire pits will be closed for the season.
      2. All dogs must have leather or fabric leashes and collars. No metal allowed.
      3. Yak-Trax, Microspikes, screw shoes, and other metal traction devices are are not allowed because of the risk of sparks on rocks.
      4. Speeds must be kept to under 10mph.
      5. All trail users should carry at least 20oz of water with them.
      6. No groups larger than ten will be allowed. It is recommended that individuals in a group stay 1' apart - this is especially true of uphill trail runners and bikers - to avoid to large a concentration of thermal bodies.
      7. The use of some electronic devices on the trails is banned, including GPS devices, lights, and portable music devices. Cell phones will be allowed, but only for calling 911 in case you start or spot a fire.
      8. Bikes with disc brakes are banned. Only bikes with rubber brake pads are allowed. They considered banning all but carbon fiber bikes, but backed down due to public pressure.
