2nd Annual March Madness Run Coming on March 18
There are three established routes to choose from with distances of 9, 23 and 34 miles. There are three start times to choose from as well: 7:00 am, 8:00 am and 9:00 am with the goal of returning sometime between 12:00 and 2:00 for food and festivities.
here. There is a turn by turn course description here. And here is the GPS data of my run of this course last year.
Pete's route is about as challenging as as you can get around here and there is a course map and turn by turn directions here. Further down on that same post, is the course map and directions for a 9-mile route which doesn't make the full reservoir loop, but does have a couple good climbs, runs alongside the reservoir for awhile and starts and finishes with the same miles as the longer routes.
There are pictures, finish times and stories of last year's event here.
Post a comment or send me an email if you have questions. RSVP is not necessary, just show up for a start time and bring something to BBQ and some food or drink to share. The courses will be only minimally marked, so print the map and description for the route you plan to run. There are places to fill water on the circumnav. routes, but there will be no aid stations, so plan to carry whatever you will need.
See you next Sunday. Happy Spring!
