Run the the PCT

Congrats to all of you who ran and completed the Oriflamme 50K...especially you first timers.  If you are signed up for the PCt 50 it is a month away!  We run 20.....or more out and back on the PCT.  Bring plenty of hydration as there is no aid stations.  One strategy is in addition to your backpack bring an extra hand bottle or giant bottle of your favorite drink.  Ditch it around mile 7 so that you can pick it up on your return back to Boulder Oaks.  Don't be sorry......be prepared.  make sure to check the weather Friday night.  I have run on the PCT in Mid-April and have it snow on my ass!  After the run we will hit up either Janet's or Alpine Brewery on the way home.  make sure to bring a change of clothes.

Mountain Runner Gear

1.  Backpack

2.  Warm clothes

    What a fun day with a great group. Thanks Doc for getting us started. I will try and download the group picture. Ahniwai, sorry you missed the group. I was looking forward to seeing you. Next time. I'm running Zion 100K next Friday with Anne and Julie. Probably won't see everyone until PCT 50. Yikes, that is getting close. Good luck everyone.

    Guess I better carpool next time. At least it's a scenic drive. Maybe I will find it by the time everyone is finished :)

      Yes it was! I actually asked somebody for directions. I have to tell my wife, she won't believe me.

    If you see someone in the morning looking like they just lost their mommy & daddy, that would be me! This will be my first meetup with you all. Can't wait to get the first time jitters knocked out. See you in the morning!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
