Re: Thursday run, May 31st, O'Fallen Park.
- Alternate route to O'Fallon that avoids traffic on C470 and through Morrison (there's a concert at Red Rocks tonight). Take I70 to exit 256, take a left over hwy, then left onto frontage road, follow Grapevine over the hill to hwy 74, right 3.6mi to the park. See map at

> DTR runs are not races. We ask the faster runners to start slowly, to keep the group together for the first few minutes. After that, we spread out and naturally form smaller sub-groups and run different routes. The different routes are designed so that runners of different abilities can start and finish at about the same time. Please pick the appropriate route for you. Don't necessarily follow the people in front of you. The sub-groups/routes are approximately defined as follows:
> 5: sub-40 10km (road race time, not the pace run at DTR runs)
> 4: low-mid 40s 10km
> 3: high 40s to mid 50s 10km
> 2: mid 50s to low 60s 10km
> 1: mid 60s+
> 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 in the canyons once 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 post a message on our Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Denver-Trail-Runners/124728809715
