Fourth in the Kyana Running Trail Race Series, sponsored by Blue Mile. Only seven miles, but quite hilly (hey, it IS Bernheim!) - BUT, a nice, l-o-n-g downhill finish! Point-to-point course, with net[masked]' downhill (so theoretically should be pretty fast). ;}
Start is at the top of Bernheim's central hill, at the intersection of Paul's Point Circle and Ashlock Fire Road. Turning right on the Millenium Trail (MT), running clockwise to the finish at Guerilla Hollow, which also serves as the staging area for the ride to the start.
VERY IMPORTANT!!! - - - MUST show up for this race earlier than for other races in the series. Since it is point-to-point, we have to shuttle runners to the top of the hill in several waves. We will have one more van this year, but it still can be 2-3 round trips, depending on he numbers. Remember the old route for the Mini? If you missed he bus, you missed the race. Not quite that bad here, but we will try to start fairly promptly at 8:00. So if you delay, you may get started late - and there ain't no fancy-schmancy chips!
ALSO IMPORTANT!!! - - - Let the gatekeeper know you are with the race - we are splitting the net proceeds with Bernheim, so the normal $5.00 charge is waived for you. BTW, you can sign up for a Bernheim membership ($50 a year) and never pay a gate fee. They have some terrific stuff coming up - with the CONNECT event on August 24, and ColorFest in the fall. But our favorite part of the Forest is the forest!
One more thing - if there is enough interest, we will establish regular meetup runs on the various trails there.
