Below is the planned course marking schedule for 2003. We will start
course marking at 9 AM on Saturday, June 28 from my house at 1354 Reese in
Silverton. Subsequent days will begin at 7 AM from my house unless
otherwise noted. Because the schedule will change, I will post the updates
on the white board at the entrance to my house.
I've found that a good pair of work gloves helps take the wear off your hands.
Paulette Schmaltz is in charge of removing the flags from the course
beginning as soon as the run starts. So, if you or your crew is interested
in that, please contact her at: pjhiker@...
Runners, crew, and others interested are welcome to join in the fun. This
is a grea way to see the course, get aclimated, and meet other runners,
dogs, elk, marmots, and maybe even a bear.
I hope to see you up in Silverton.
