Notes on Foresthill
I saw a couple inquires about Foresthill/ WST training camp,
and thought I'd make a few comments, since I was up there
running last weekend.
* There's major road construction on the Foresthill road (the route
from Auburn to Foresthill). It seemed only to be going on during
week days, and it's well outside of Foresthill, but it might cause some
delays for anyone driving on the road Friday, while they're working.
* It was quite warm last weekend. The high, on the "lower" part
of the course (bet. Foresthill & Auburn) was at least in the upper
eighties. But as Chuck Lewis said, you should expect anything,
* Re food: If you want to sit down to a fine meal, you can check the
Foresthouse. If you want fast food, I think you have to drive back to
Auburn. (Also, we had a great italian meal at Pasquale T's, on Hwy 49
Auburn Saturday night.) I attended the training camp only once, in '93,
and remember that the food Norm Klein served up was excellent.
* On the "ultra list", a local runner said that there's still snow 3 1/2
down Foresthill road from Robinson flat (which is the nominal start for
Saturday's run). Hopefully that means that you'll get to enjoy the
of running on snow in May, but it might mean you run out-and-back
from Foresthill or some other alternate route. Hopefully the organizers
will chime in to let you know what the plan is.
