I was happy to find this group back in Spring 2014 - to get to know other trail runners and share some of the trails I run in the city. I was sad to see David, the former leader, leave town. I know one day he'll come back and run this city again.
About me: I'm highly dedicated to trail running in the city. I prefer to run on dirt, so any stretches of pavement will only be a means to getting to the next trail head. I have a few standby routes that will show up here often. However you're never to old to learn a new route. (For example, I just tried out the sweet little climb up the east side of Corona Heights.)
I'd like to mix things up a bit - night runs, vertical work, after work, sunrise/sunset, etc. On occasion, I'd like to leave the "urban" behind. More on that later.
As far as pace is concerned, my philosophy is to leave no onebehind. I'd much rather encourage front-runners to go out as fast as they'd like, giving them directions to the next junction.
About you: If you're new to the city, come on out and learn a trail or two. If you've been around a while and have some favorites, come on out and lead us.
