A "Go FAR" Run

Something fun to do!!!

We will run a route approximately 8 miles (half mile warm up from the meeting location of Backesto Park) to the starting location - 17th and E. Mission Street.  

We will then run a route about 7.5 miles where we will spell out "Go FAR"!!!!!

**There is an optional additional 1.25 miles if you would like to UNDERLINE "Go FAR".**

This is an unsupported run so please be sure to bring water and anything else you may need.  A GPS watch is recommended.

Here are the turn by turn directions!
