Friday Night Trail Run - Apex

This Meetup is past

6 people went


Hey folks,

It's been a few weeks since our last one of these, but the weather's looking good tomorrow, so I figured it might be a good time to get out on the trails.

Most of the rest of the trails at Apex reopened recently after being closed for 9 months to repair flood damaged, and I've been itching to check them out. Lower Apex Trail is still closed, but Upper Apex, Enchanted Forest, and the north side of the park are fully open, which gives us plenty of good options. We'll meet at the upper lot (the lower lot is closed for construction) at 6pm - just off 40/Colfax, slightly west of the 6 interchange, on the west side of the highway. Look for the Heritage Square sign and arch. A few different options for routes and distance here, basically all concentric loops, so it's easy to pick something to fit how long/tough you want to go. I wouldn't call this a no-drop run, but we do break off into informal groups based on pace, have a wide variety of paces and abilities represented, and regroup at the end to make sure nobody gets left behind.

We'll plan to run for around 75 minutes, then grab dinner or beers if folks are interested. It's looking warm tomorrow, so a water bottle might be advisable.

See you there!
