      The Wednesday morning run is at Red Rocks at 6am. We will meet here
      every Wednesday until further notice. We will do some stair repeats -
      great for building hip power and running up hills - along with a warm-
      up and cool-down on the roads/trails around the ampitheatre.

      From C470, take the Morrison exit. Head west, through the town of
      Morrison. Go past the traffic light at hwy 8. Take the next right and
      follow the signs to the Trading Post.

      From I-70, take the Red Rocks exit, #259. Go south, about 1 mile down
      the hill. Turn right into Red Rocks and follow the signs to the
      Trading Post.

      This Thursday's run is at Mt. Falcon (T=3, P=5). The early group will
      meet at 5:30pm; look for Mike, Chris, Connie, Jim and others. The
      main group will start at 6:15pm.

      For directions and route info go to:
      groups.yahoo.com/group/denvertrailrunners
      Click on Files
      Click on Trails
      Open Mt. Falcon

      This is the first of our monthly time trials this season. Why do we
      do this? Because the group has stated that they want it in every
      survey we've done. It's a good way to gauge your progress through the
      season. Don't worry about how fast or slow you are. The time trial is
      2.5mi with ~1,500' of climbing. The times have ranged from 23 to 55
      minutes. After this first time trial, we'll handicap the starts so
      that everyone finishes at about the same time. After everyone is
      done, we usually do a more casual group run at the top before heading
      back down.

      Schedule (subject to change):
      5/22-Apex
      5/29-Deer Creek, pot-luck picnic after run

      Thursday is not only a full moon, but it is also a full lunar eclipse.

      This Saturday's Evergreen Runners Circle (ERC) run is at Elk Meadow,
      lower lot (T=3, P=3) at 8:30am sharp.

      The ERC runs are usually about an hour long. Sometimes a few people
      will meet early or continue after the run to get in more mileage.
      They usually go out for coffee/breakfast afterwards. I don't lead
      these runs, so please don't ask me the questions. For more info about
      the ERC schedules, go to:
      http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Lodge/7018/index.html

      Upcoming ERC schedule:
      May 24: Alderfer/Three Sisters. Meet at the yellow house.

      finish at the top, back down to the start. Contact Peggy Ballangee

      Every Sunday, the Incline Club meets to run in the Pikes Peak area.
      It's a large group with wide range of abilities. The runs start at
      8am sharp in Manitou Springs. The runs typically are 2-3.5 hours.
      They have upwards of 100 runners with a wide range of abilities. Let
      me know if you are interested in joining/forming a carpool, and what
      part of town you will be coming from. For more info on these runs,
      including a map and detailed description of this Sunday's route, go
      to www.inclineclub.com.

      Looking for company on a long weekend run? Want to carpool to a
      mountain race, Incline Club run or other outing? Let me know and I'll
      send out the word. Please send me specific information about where
      and when you want people to meet, or how to contact you. Please try
      to send me the information a week in advance so I have time to get it
      into my weekly message. Don't wait for me to plan everything!

      I'm still looking for updated conditions, as the snow melts and trees
      are cleared, from: higher up 285 (e.g., Kenosha Pass, Lost Creek
      Wilderness), I-70 (e.g., Argentine Pass Rd, Grays & Torreys, Herman's
      Gulch), along Peak-to-Peak hwy (e.g., Golden Gate Canyon State Park,
      Rollinsville), and the Roxborough, Pikes Natl Forest, Colo Trail
      areas. Please send updates to me on Mondays so I can include them in
      next week's newsletter.
