Run the Rusty Barrel at Night

Beat the heat Wed night...meet 7:00 pm at the Mission Trails Equestrian Center. Bring a headlamp and/or flashlight and hydration. Don't park in the main parking lot or you'll get locked in overnight. See map for exact meetup location and street parking.

The full loop is about 9 miles or you can take a shortcut at the end and shave off a mile [http://tpks.ws/Q5iG]

      You were going to fast to notice him...did you see the two reflected eyes up in the trees on the short stretch of road on the way back? He was sitting up there checking us out. PS we run PQ Canyon next week probably Monday night...

    I'm planning on coming - what is pace on the flats typically? Do you run hills ultra style? (meaning walking the steeper stuff)
    Thanks!

      The group pace is "usually" pretty laid back, 10 minutes/mile or even slower. The rusty barrel loop is a slow steady incline for about 3 or 4 miles...On fresh legs it's totally runnable, but a lot of people hike the steeper parts. Check out the elevation profile in the link above...

    Tempting! Part of me thinks I should stay home and study for a big test the next day, the other part of me says to go running to go into the test relaxed! Gah!

      The little angel on your right shoulder says stay home and study. The little dirt devil on your left shoulder says go run!
