Come one, come all, as a special version of the rumble runs returns for the summer! Consider this unofficial training for the late summer Alpine series races!

Meet in the first parking lot on the left (by the playground) for a nice, no-drop 5 ish mile jaunt through the woods! We will venture out on Castlewood's awesome single-track trails, so trail shoes are recommended, but not required. Faster runners will run ahead and wait at trail forks so we can all regroup together. The course will be explained beforehand so said faster runners can feel free to run ahead. If you do not feel that you can hold a 12:30 pace (slow jog), then please be familiar with the trails and/ or bring a buddy!

After the run, we will reconvene at the picnic tables by the creek (crick) for post-run shenanigans. Bring your own cooler, snacks, and a lawn chair and hang out until dark (when they kick us out)!

Water fountains and bathroom facilities are available at the parking lot.

Invite your friends! Invite your not-so friends! Invite whomever you long as they have a good sense of humor and the desire to run the trails (or drink in the crick afterwards).
