White River Training run, Sun Top side.

 

HI Everyone,

For those who enjoy great scenery or are getting ready for The White River 50 mile race. We will be running the Sun Top loop.  About 4,000 feet of elevation gain. Plan on being gone most of the day. Eric Sach, owner of The Balanced Athlete (8x finisher) will lead this run. Meeting at The Balanced Athlete at 7 AM to arrange car pools. We should arrive at Skookum Flats trail head, 8:45am.  Be ready to run at 9AM. Plan on bringing Iodine or a water filter. 800-1,200 calories. Could be some snow on top. Depending on weather, hat, gloves and light jacket /shell would be important to carry. For more details contact Eric Sach at the Balanced Athlete.

    I'll meet you at the Balanced Athlete. If anyone needs a pick up let me know (I'm coming from Mill Creek), but once we get to the Balanced Athlete I'd like to get someone who knows the way or ride with someone who does. I want to get a map of the area we'll be in so what green trails map should I pick up?
