Turkey Trot-Off (Chester Creek + Campbell Creek Trails; 14 miles)

We'll start at Westchester Lagoon, and do Chester Creek and Campbell Creek Trails in their entirety, ending down on Dimond. This run is just under 14 miles. 

We'll need to arrange car(s) at both Westchester Lagoon and at the end of the Campbell Creek Trail at Victor St/Dimond. They are only about a 10 minute drive from each other. 

If it doesn't snow by then, ice grippers would be a good idea. We won't be running on any cement except the areas under the bridges, assuming they haven't been covered up by the ski grooming equipment yet.

For anyone that hasn't run with our group...we aren't crazy. We usually do 9-10 minute miles.

      How about for the least ambitious of the group? My guess is 6.5ish?

    Nice clear day for a run! We all seemed to stay warm enough :)

    I can't make it. My Achilles' doesn't feel right this morning. Hopefully another time! Have fun!

    • Nicole L

      Aw hope your Achilles recovers! That's a nasty injury I'll say! Likes to creep back when all you want to do is run!

    OK, for convenience, we'll just do the loop. We'll start at Westchester, follow the same loop until Campbell Creek Trail at International...then we'll break off and run A Street back. Bring studded shoes if you don't feel comfortable running on sidewalk ice for the last 2 miles of the run (there may be some, I'm not sure). It'll be 12 miles total.

    Anyone from the southside willing to pick me up from my car at victor/dimond at 1240? I hope so...bc we wont be able to do this otherwise :-)

      I was just saying peanut farm because I figured it'd be semi close to your house. But Tudor/Elmore is close too. Take a look at the map on here and pick a place. I can pick you two up (wherever you decide to park along Campbell Creek Trail) before I head down to Dimond/Victor, and then you, me and Lumi could ride with whomever picks us up to head back up to Westchester?

      November 30, 2013

    • Nicole L

      I could give y'all a ride from the south side! I'll be coming from church

      November 30, 2013

    Does anyone have a preference about tomorrow? Is 14 miles too much? It'll feel a bit more than 14 miles with the packed snow, and it is supposed to be a high of 12 degrees tomorrow. I am totally fine with doing the whole distance, but I'd also be open to putting a car down by Peanut Farm, and making this 10 miles? Or we could make it 12 miles, and just shoot up A Street from Peanut Farm, so that we do a giant loop (With only 2 miles of it on a plowed city street sidewalk) where no carpooling is needed.

      A loop sounds fine to me, or the first plan. 1 pm also sounds fine to me as well, as that would put us outside for the warmest hours of the day, but I can go earlier if there is a change of time. I'll plan on being at Westchester at 1, but will monitor the website for changes before. "There is no bad weather, only bad clothing choices."

      It looks like the loop is going to win if i cant get a ride, which is fine. As for your weather quote...think pheonix in july...i just proved that wrong haha

    i am putting not attending since i am going to do this in the am!!

    I had to bail on the run. Managed to come down with a case of the plague/flu/death. Have a great run!

  • Eryn R

    Hey guys, when is this starting tomorrow? And since ill be breaking off from the pack with lumi, is there a way someone could pick me up on your ride back to take me to get my car at the lagoon?

    November 30, 2013

    • Kenton C.

      Lets just stick with 1. Also...it would prob be more efficient to pick you up and take you to the lagoon...or better yet have you park by peanut farm and pick you ip from there bedore the run?

    Who's up for going to skinny mini afterwards as a group? It'd be fun to get a picture there all together maybe john clark will be around too

    November 25, 2013

    • Nicole L

      November 26, 2013

    • Eryn R

      hmm, i'd rather go to marissa's if she has hot drinks! ;)

      November 26, 2013

  • Taylor

    Is anyone open to starting this tiny bit earlier? :)

    November 25, 2013

    • Taylor

      LOVE FROYO

      November 25, 2013

    • Nicole L

      It's no big deal if we start earlier!

      November 26, 2013

  • Adam G.

    What's a tiny bit? My schedule is pretty flexible.

    November 25, 2013

    • Taylor

      I would love to start at 10:30ish

      November 25, 2013

  • Eryn R

    if i bring lumi, we definitely will break off from the pack near my house. i don't want her doing that much mileage.
