What we're about
Hello Spartan Trail Runners! I'm Patrick, a new Co-Organizer.
Many think, promise, intend, and talk.
Very few actually DO. Which are you?
Please DO a trail run with us (moderate to intermediate trails with some elevation gain) to train for a race, to improve health or just to get unstuck.
There’s a new protocol for all (including me) based on a simple premise: Showing up matters.
Here it is:
1.JOIN: RSVP “yes” and put up a $20 Commitment Deposit held in trust via a secure app. I do it too.
2.DO: Check in on time. Participate. Finish. Check out….and that deposit is returned 100%!
3.GAIN: If a person doesn't "DO" the above, no judgment, but their deposit becomes the Commitment Pool that is shared equally by everyone who "did".
Example: One is late and another a no-show for a Sunday run, so their $20 deposits become the Commitment Pool. The other five of us meet our commitment and DO (see #2), so we five each gain our $20 deposit back PLUS an equal share of the pool.
Where: Griffith Park and other locations TBD.
When: Every other weekend or so either mid-mornings or late afternoons.
Why: That's up to each of us.
How: Reply to a posted invite via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to get a link to the secure app.
