New Meetup: Friday Trail Run - White Ranch

From: Pete
Sent on: Thursday, October 28, 2010 9:07 AM
Announcing a new Meetup for The Denver Running Meetup Group!

What: Friday Trail Run - White Ranch

When: Friday, October 29,[masked]:15 PM

Where: White Ranch Open Space Parking Area (near 56th Ave)
5700 Pine Ridge Road
golden, CO 80403

Although we're sans-Pete this week, there'll still be a Friday trail run. This time we'll be at White Ranch, just north of Golden. The trail system is pretty big, so there are lots of options for long or short distances, but definitely be ready for a bit of uphill. I'll probably be aiming for around 7-8 miles, or running for 80-90 minutes. If you want to check out the map in advance, it's on the Jeffco Open Space site at

To get there: Head north on Hwy 93 from Golden. About 3 miles north of where Hwy 58 and Hwy 93 and Hwy 6 intersect in Golden, you'll make a left onto W. 56th Ave. From there, go about 1 mile to the stop sign at the "T" intersection. Take a right at the stop sign and you'll see a dirt driveway and a sign for White Ranch park. Take the dirt road a few hundred feet to the parking lot that's up on the right side.

As with the last few weeks' runs, you'll probably want to bring a headlamp or flashlight to run with. The trail at White Ranch is terrific (one of my favorites on the front range) but there are definitely rocks and tree roots that would be pretty difficult to navigate in the dark without some sort of light source. As Pete said last week, everyone is an adult, so you can make your own decision... but deciding not to bring something will likely severely hinder your ability to enjoy a night run.

Last (but certainly not least), if there's interest after the run, we'll head to a bar somewhere nearby for beers and/or food. See you there!
