Please Read! New info added as of 2/26
More Big Sur Training (or whatever else you're training for)! This run will be approx 18 miles, includes beautiful rolling hills, Dipsea trail and great beer at the end. It looks like parking might be an issue; hopefully okay since we are parking before GTC opens. Carpooling would be a good option. Park in the dirt GTC lot at 30 Ridge Ave.
During the run, we will most likely have different pace groups. I'm hoping that once you identify your pace, stick with that group. Notice who you are running with and be thoughtful at major turns or tricky trail changes and make sure the people in your pace group all make them together.
Drew created a map for us!
Here's the turn by turn.
18 miles with approx 3500 ft elevation. Start and end closer to the GTC. Come ready for an adventure and a beautiful trail.
Water at Pantoll and Stinson only.
Bring water, bring fuel and bring your map. Oh and enjoy!
New! 6-7-ish mile loop by request. See here
Bring lunch if you need refueling post run! GTC has limited selection of foods (cheese, pickles, jerkey, beer).
Bring cash! Last I recall, GTC doesn't take debit/credit cards.
fyi, We will start at parking lot and end at GTC - cars will be 0.25 mile up the steep (250' gain) driveway.
