      Imogene Pass Run registration opens June 1. This race will sell out
      fast. Registration information will be posted at

      The race is Sept 8. It’s 17.1mi, from Ouray (7,810’), to Telluride
      (8,820’), over Imogene Pass (13,120’).

      Rained out this week.

      The speed workouts will take place every Tuesday, at 6:00pm, as long
      as there is interest. Sometimes there will be a separate e-mail with
      the workout info, Mon evening, or Tue during the day.

      These workouts are for runners of all abilities. (The only exception
      is for beginning runners or those coming back after a long lay-off.
      You should build a good base, with lower effort, and gradually longer
      runs, before you start doing speed work.) The group stays in a compact
      area (e.g., short loop or out-and-back), so no one will get left
      behind. We run for time, starting and finishing together. The route is
      designed typically with the hard efforts on climbs and/or
      non-technical terrain; descents and rocky terrain will be easy
      efforts. The purpose is to combine track-like speed workouts with
      power training for hills.

      Mtn bike: Designed for people training for off-road tris/dus, but
      anyone is welcome. Bring your mountain bike (as long as it's dry). You
      will alternate between running and biking, with quick transitions, and
      a slightly different loop for the bike. The loops will be designed to
      avoid conflicts between the runners and bikers.

      Run Location: North Table Mountain. The main group will meet at
      6:15pm; the early group at 5:30pm.

      Run notes: This is a lollipop route â€" a big loop in the middle, with
      an out-and-back at the start/finish. The loop is fairly long, and
      there aren’t any short cuts. So, slower runners should do this as an
      out-and-back. The trail takes a right turn at a service road; the
      service road goes N. This is shortly before the Midway mark on the
      map. If you haven’t reached this turn in 35 minutes (for the main
      group), you should turn around and return the way you took on the way out.

      Bring warm/dry clothes for after the run. Everyone is invited to join
      us for dinner afterwards. At the end of the run, we decide as a group
      where we go.

      Tentative schedule:
      6/7: Gudy Gaskill
      6/14: Apex, potluck party at Kristin’s.
      6/21: Lair ‘o the Bear (no picnic)
      6/28: Hogback
      7/5: Lookout/Chimney Gulch
