Hey Tony, I am going to sign up for this on waiting list in the hopes you move it to another time because I want to do Bernheim too that day, which is impossible. (Thanks you guys for coordinating..NOT!) Olmstead strongly encourages us to stay off the trails when they are muddy so I try and respect that. Any chance you would consider moving these Cherokee Trail hikes to a Sunday? Selfishly 20 miles closer to my house than JMF.

Just a reminder, this is a Hiking for Health special event. If you haven't already done so, you need to start working toward completing a Level 2 hike to qualify to attend this one. ANYONE WHO HAS HIKED THE SILTSTONE / PURPLE HEART 4.5 MILE COURSE IN UNDER TWO HOURS IN THE PAST YEAR QUALIFIES. You can hike with Chris Kurth (Tues, Thurs, Saturday), with me (some Saturdays) or with a friend, but you will have to complete that course in under two hours to qualify to attend this hike. I'll modify RVSP's a few days before the event as needed. Please feel free to contact me or Chris Kurth if you would like help reaching that goal!

If anyone wants to know how to prequalify for this hike, or any of the HfH STRETCH GOAL EVENTS, feel free to shoot me an email by clicking on my picture to the left then clicking on "Email". Its pretty easy to work up to a Level 2 pace if you walk or hike a couple times per week between now and this event. I'm willing to help anyone who wants help. Just ask!
Just for a reference... because of the hills, a 3 mph pace on the Cherokee trails is equivalent to a 4-4.5 mph (13 to 15 min/mile) on flat ground.
Let me know how I can help you all get ready for this event!!
