Week of Sept. 6
- In this week's message:
+ Thursday run: Apex Park
+ Other weekly runs: Tue & Wed mornings, Sat ERC
+ DTR Road Trip - 10/8, Silent Trails race, Laramie
+ Carpool offers/requests
+ Trail Races, clinics and other upcoming events.
This Thursday's run is at Apex Park (T4, P3, N2, bMms). The main group
will start at 6:15pm. The early group usually starts around 5:30pm.
We'll do the Figure 8 route.
In case of rain and muddy trails, we will run at Bear Creek Lake Park instead.
If you are new to this trail, or to DTR, please follow the link below
to maps, route descriptions, driving directions, and other information.
Tue morning runs continue at South Table Mtn (T=3, P=2, N=4) on
Tuesday mornings, 5:15am. You should bring a hand or head light for
the start of the run. Please see the message posted on Mondays, or
contact Ray: r2grundmeyer@...
Wed mornings, run stairs at Red Rocks. This is a "show-and-go"
workout, meaning that just start whenever you show up. People have
been starting anywhere from 5:30-6:30am. Is anyone showing up or
should I drop this listing?
The Evergreen Runners Circle (ERC) holds free runs every Saturday,
8:30am, on trails, in the Evergreen area. Several DTR regulars join
these runs. The ERC runs are typically about 60 minutes long. They
usually go out for coffee/breakfast afterwards. Please forward your
questions to Dave via the ERC link below. For more info about the ERC
schedules, go to: http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Lodge/7018/index.html
9/10: Bergen Peak and Elk Meadow races (see below)
9/17: Evergreen Mtn from upper Alderfer lot
9/24: O'Fallon Park
10/1: Chief Hosa
I'd like to see if we can get enough people interested in taking a
road trip to the Silent Trails race, 10/8; in Laramie, WY.
The race is a memorial to 7 members of the Univ. of Wyoming
cross-country team, who were killed by a drunk driver, while driving
back from Colorado, in 2001. The race is 10mi, of single-track trail,
in the Happy Jack Recreation Area, of the medicine Bow National
Forest, just outside of Laramie. Details at
If we can get enough interest, it can be a lot of fun going to a race
as a group. Laramie is less than 2 hours from Denver, no farther than
going to Vail.
Let me know if you're interested.
Save gas. Save money. It's more fun to go with a group. Send me a note
if interested in carpooling to any upcoming events. I'll try to help
you find a driving partner. Please send me the information by the
weekend prior to the event.
Talon is looking to carpool to the Goblin Valley 50k race (see below):
"I would like to know if anyone is planning or interested in going to
this event. I plan on going and would love to carpool. If someone
would like to share a room, that would be cool too. I plan on going
down Friday and coming back Sunday." runtalon@...
Upcoming trail races and events:
* Imogene is full. If you're going, please let me know. We'll pick a
time/place to get together after the race. Maybe we can cooperate on
car shuttles the morning of the race, rather than relying on the busses.
