Hey All. This Thursday I think we will switch it up and head out to Clinton Lake to join the Sunflower Outdoor and Bike Shop Trail Running Clinic. They are meeting at 6:00pm so I think it would be great to get out there with some new people, on some different dirt, and maybe pick up some useful tips. As always, bring your water since summer is really heating up.

PS. All are welcome! Not just the ladies! http://sunfloweroutdoorandbike.com/blogs/news/14776905-trail-running-clinic

Hope to see you all there!!

Course:

Trail Hawks, Trail Hawk friends and family welcome

Costumes Encouraged!!! Although, like every year, I'll have costume items that you are more than welcome to borrow.

Potluck. The Trail Hawks will be providing a main dish, pop/soda/soda-pop (ugh, can I just say Coke, you know what I mean!! :) ) and some treats. Helpful potluck items to bring would be firewood. (If someone calls this early, Those Polish Thingies will bring pierogi.)

If no one camps out at shelter 1 before 3, we will have two grills and a fire pit at our disposal.

Gather beginning at 6:30 pm. You'll be divided into “packs” around 7 pm. Hit the trails at before/by 7:30pm. Party over by 10 pm, when they close the park gates.

Course will be 4.5 miles – One pack will go out on white from Shelter 1 to Marina Road, back on blue to Saunders Mound, where they will howl at the moon, and then back to Shelter 1. It will almost be a full moon, so should be a great night for a run.

The “pack” that wins the race gets a growler of beer from Free State.
