Point Defiance 50K / 30K / 15K

So this Saturday is the Point Defiance 50K/30K/15K.

Who is going? If anyone wants to carpool please comment below. Make sure to mention which race you are doing so you don't end up in a car with others who are in a shorter/longer race.

Last year I thought there was plenty of parking right down by the start at Owens Beach. (The same place the Running club parked when we went this summer) Just aim to be there early. If the parking does fill up at the start all the other parking is going to be 10-15 minutes walk away.

The map above shows the parking right next to the start.

    Great day! Nice trails, beautiful setting/views. Thanks to everyone who came out for the race.

      It was a great day to run the trails! So good to see everyone!!! It sure is nice to run with so many friends :)

    We will be 8 people doing this race. Lori, Paul, Chris & Frank are doing the 15K. Kathy, Michelle and I are doing 30K, and Mitch, who is driving by himself, is doing 50K. I'm shooting to finish in 3h30 but it might take me closer to 4, given that the organizers added a couple of bonus miles. Kathy and Michelle estimate 5h for their runs. Unfortunately, I have a commitment and would need to leave soon after I finish. This leaves the following options:
    1. The 15K crew is driving home with me. It's going to be a bit cozy, but my Prius is bigger than it looks like. Michelle and Kathy are driving together.
    2. We take a total of 3 cars: 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 of the 15K crew ride together in one car, the rest with me. Again, Michelle and Kathy would be driving together.
    3. We take only 2 cars, and one of the 15K runners waits for Michelle and Kathy, but this would be a longish wait.
    Any opinions? We can make the final decision on Saturday morning.

      I was planning on staying longer at the race but I have a pretty crazy weekend ahead of me, so I will need to be home by noon. I will be at FT at six if anyone wants a ride and will need to leave the race by 11. If that works for anyone, please feel free to jump in with me.

    • Paul R

      I've had a change of plans and will need to be driving south soon after I finish, so I'm going to drive myself to the run.

      October 11, 2013

  • Chris

    I will have my car at Ft so my husband can drive two more people back when we leave. 3 if we are ok being cozy so I dont think there will be a problem

    October 11, 2013

  • Frank

    I will not be making it to running club tonight (Thursday) but I am still willing to drive. Let me know if anyone needs a ride.

    October 10, 2013

  • Shirley

    Good luck and have a great time, everyone! You guys and gals all rock :)

    Good luck to all of you. I'm still nursing my sore ankle, but can't wait to hear all about it.

    October 8, 2013

  • Frank

    I am available to drive. I have room for three and will probably hang out until people are done. I am in Eastgate/Factoria area and can pick up anyone that wants a ride. Mitch if you want a lift I can pick you up. Just send me addresses to [masked]

    1 · October 8, 2013

    • Mitch

      Which distance are you running Frank? You would be waiting around a long time for me- LOL. I think I'm the only one doing the 50K. Last time it took me 7:40 and the last lap took me 3 hours! Looks like there are plenty of drivers though! We can figure out the details at RC on Thursday.

      October 8, 2013

    • Lori P.

      I guess we could all go get lunch, a movie, and come back to get you :) Just kidding!

    I was hoping to car pool. I am doing the 30k . Excited that have such a good size group going to this race. Should be fun.

    • Paul R

      If Michelle and Kathie are carpooling perhaps I could go with them? I don't mind waiting for the 30k to finish.

      October 8, 2013

    • Mitch

      Sounds like Kathie can drive. :-)

      October 8, 2013

  • Mitch

    Is anyone else gong? I think Frank is going, but not sure if he plans to carpool. We can nail some of this down tomorrow at RC too. Sounds like Ruppert, Chris and Lori in one car and

    Kathie, Michelle and Paul in another. Not sure who is interested in driving for that group. Frank can fit into either car or might be able to drive. We can see tomorrow.

    I'll meet you all there. I plan to get there about 7am. There is a shelter where they will have packet pickup right by the start. How about we meet there?

    October 8, 2013

  • Chris

    15K loop - My husband will meet me at the finish line so I dont need a ride back but would perfer to hitch a ride with someone to the race. Can I join Rupert and Lori?

    October 8, 2013

  • Ruppert

    30k for me as well. I can take drive and take 3 people in addition to myself. I'll be at FT at 6:00am.

    October 7, 2013

    • Lori P.

      May I ride with you Ruppert? If you are already full with your car, I can drive. I will be at FT at 0600.

      October 7, 2013

    • Lori P.

      Oh, I am only doing the 15k, but all of you 30k people are alot faster than I am, so maybe you will all be waiting for me!

    I'm doing the 30k. The plan is to leave at 6am. We expect that we'll need at least 2 cars if most people want to carpool.

    October 7, 2013

  • Paul R

    I was also hoping to carpool. I'm doing the 15k.
