Thursday run, May 3 2012, White Ranch (lower lot)
- This week's run is at White Ranch, lower lot. The early group meets at 5:30pm; the main group starts at 6:15pm. We will meet at the trailhead off Pine Ridge Road in Golden. Take route 93 north from Golden past the Golden Gate Canyon turnoff. Don't turn at Golden Gate Canyon, even though there are signs for White Ranch there. Continue about 1.5 miles further to 56th. There are more White Ranch signs there. Turn left for 1 mile on Pine Ridge Road, then right into the lot.

Run notes: The following is a link to a map of the trails with routes of different lengths outlined for runners of different abilities, designed so that we can finish at about the same time. Please pick the route appropriate for you. Don't necessarily follow the people in front of you. http://dtr.runuphillracing.com/Maps/WhiteLowerRoutes.pdf If you are not familiar with the trails, please review the map in advance.
DTR runs are not races. We ask the faster runners to start slowly, to keep the group together for the first 5-10 minutes. After that, we spread out and naturally form smaller sub-groups. We ask experienced runners to wait at key intersections to help guide newer runners.
Bring warm and dry clothing for after the run. Even in the summer, it cools off quickly when the sun goes down.
Everyone is invited to join us for dinner after the run. We will pick a nearby restaurant.
Carpool: If you are interested in sharing a ride to/from any of the DTR runs, please go to:
