OLD MAN 52K
Back for year three. A 52K and a 5.2 mile. This year's course will not have near the climbing (a trip around Marcus Landslide will for sure remain) but will feature some of the best of the Preserve and Foothill trails. A start at Tom Thumb Trailhead, up into the McDowell's for a bit, then off over to the Preserve area around Granite and Cholla Mtns, some of the new Browns Ranch trails, a little up and over Brown Mountain, and a mix of trails and dirt roads back to our place where a cold one, a sweaty hug and a cool finishers reward awaits.
Local time: 12:47 PM
Of course we are doing the party thing that night (and we really don't even need St. Patty's as an excuse). A keg (no green beer), a case of wine, and some sippin Agave nectar of course. Room to crash on a couch, pitch a backyard tent, pull up a floor, whatever. Fun stuff, hope you can join.
More coming as we get closer. Slight chance we may move to the 9th if Aravaipa works out a track event at Central High (or elsewhere) on the 16th as I plan on running that one and who would tap the keg?
