Congrats to club members Paul, Kristine, Hollie, and John for completing the Wahsatch Steeplechase this past weekend. The course rugged and uber-challenging, with a total vertical gain and loss of approximately 8,000 feet over 17 miles. Starting in Memory Grove Park in the heart of the city, the course promptly climbs to the 8000’ summit of Black Mountain.
I know Paul smashed his goal time, and Hollie placed in the top 25% of all women (Hollie did a crazy steep hike in Park City the day after the race).
Next time you see these folks, give 'em a pat on the back for boosting the "cool" factor of our club.
Looking forward to seeing ALL of you tonight for our Capitol run :) 6PM - park on East Capitol Blvd. in diagonal parking spots NE of the Capitol building. My plan is to run through memory grove, up City Creek and back to our cars via Bonneville Blvd. Aiming for 5 miles.
321 of you have signed up for the June 2013 Get Out and Run Program.
Can we bring it to 400 before the month is over?
Let your friends know that we have a free option if you don't want a medal.
It is a great way to set a running goal and compare your time with runners all over the US!
