Ship Pass (12 Mile RT Run and Fast Hike)

UPDATE

**9:00 AM at Carrs Huffman** to carpool 

OR

**9:30AM at Glen Alps**

Meet at Carrs Huffman at 9am and gather in the north inside area by the coffee shop. There are too many of us to wait, so we will leave at 9:05 and the stragglers will have to drive up to Glen Alps to meet us.

I live by Sullivan Arena, so if anyone wants to meet there, I can crunch 4 other people into my car. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We will run 2.5 miles to the bridge (where the trail takes a left from Powerline Pass). From here we can run/hike as we like, to the top of the pass (1,800 ft elevation gain in 6 miles). There will likely be several groups that branch off depending on speed. 

Snow line seems to be just barely above Ship Pass, but this could easily drop in the next few days. Gators may be a good idea. Be prepared for winter. 

Here's Ship Pass as of 4pm on Friday

    The consensus at the bar right now is to make this event start at 10am (or later).

      I'm game for noon :) Something came up, and I can't make it before then.

    Tomorrow's forecast is a lot better than Sunday's, but...there's that little pub run tonight and stuff.

      I'm game for tomorrow! I'm quite literally a fair weather fan of most outdoor pursuits this time of year.

    How is 9am for everyone? Too early?

    I'd be into replenishing those big lost glycogen stores with some serious carbs after the run... Just think hot yummy recovery:)

    What is the intensity of the hiking section of this? (Elevation gain over how many miles?) Other recommended gear? Estimated time for the entire trip if we run part and fast hike the rest? I'm totally clueless!

    • Sarah S.

      12 miles, about 1800 ft. gain. Pretty gentle uphill with a steeper short stretch at the end. I'll probably be walking lots, so anyone who wants in for that exciting group let me know. :)

    Oh Chelsea, I haven't ran for weeks.. Doing a crash course after work today and Wednesday (wished it worked for running as it did in school). Hopefully, I will be able to keep up. Its a great run/hike!

    i was up toward the pass on Saturday. It was nice. I anticipate trying to run 1/3 of this and hike the rest. Probably not in the fastest group, but more like the middle.

    I'm also pretty slow, will be hanging in the back of the pack :)

    September 30, 2013

  • Chelsea R.

    I'll be chuggin' along with you and Brunik, Debbie! I've been feeling pretty good after all those Tuesday Night Races!

    September 30, 2013

  • Debbie M.

    9:00 is perfect. I'm all a slower runner looking forward towards this awesome hike/run combo

  • Sarah S.

    I'm down, probably in a more leisurely paced group, the snow up there is gorgeous today!

    hey did we try to do this last year? when we saw those crazy moose??? let's do it!!

    September 14, 2013

    • Kenton C.

      Also, yes! This was our failed attempt from last year :) I still have never made it past hidden lake! So you're back now??

      September 15, 2013

    • Mariah S.

      I'm in for another date, I'm running the Kenai marathon on the 29th :)

  • Meredyth

    I'm out of town but am game for this another time!

    September 15, 2013

    • Kenton C.

      When are you out of town? I would just like to do it before the snow falls, but I think we're safe for another month or so

      September 15, 2013

    • Meredyth

      I'm gone the 28th and 29th. If Kesugi Ridge doesn't happen this Sunday (the 22nd), I'm game for Ship Pass. Otherwise, the first weekend of October?
