Course Preview Runs
A Great way to –
- Get a feel for the course so you know what to expect on race day. Every single person who has done this race says it is harder than they thought. These preview runs are a great way to familiarize yourself with this course.
- Demo Salomon shoes and Orange Mud Hydration Packs
- It is also a great way to get to know others, meet new running partners and find people to carpool with.
Megan leads these runs and makes sure you understand the layout of the land – – it is confusing with 65 course junctions on this course (don’t worry, it will be well marked on race day), but it is good to get a good sense of how it all fits together.
She makes every effort to make sure there are faster runners who know the course well who can lead the faster runners. If you are one of these, please reach out to Megan. She would love your help. Megan will wait for the back of the pack.
We will meet at the Red Barn Overflow, 3.5 miles down Crawford Gulch Rd from the Visitor Center at 7:00 a.m. This lot is right off off Crawford Gulch Rd at the Nott Creek TH. Make sure you have a State Parks Pass or a day pass . . . or you will get a ticket. You can get a day pass at the Nott Creek TH. You need to have exact cash amount to put in the envelope. It is $7 or $8. We will leave most cars here and carpool with a couple cars to the Horseshoe TH (Aid 3).
Salomon will be providing shoe demos for this run and Orange Mud will provide pack demos. Arrive early and get geared up.
7:15 - we will head to Aid 3
Please bring the course map and the written course description with you. There is no way I can make sure everyone sticks together. The course will not be marked. . . and there are 65 junctions on the 50K course. You will need to feel comfortable running this course unmarked. Please print your own map and course description. I will not be providing these. I will be at the back of the pack. I have been recruiting Dirty 30'ers to help lead this run, so I am hoping there will be some folks there who know the course well.
Please join us if you know the course. We could use all the help we can get to help keep everyone on course.
7:00 a.m. - We will meet at the Over Flow Parking Lot ACROSS the road from the Red Barn. This is the Dirty 30 Start / Finish. We will run the 12 mile course start to finish. This is a great way to get some back to back tough training in. We will start running at 7:15 am. Please bring the course map and written course description with you. There is no way I can make sure everyone sticks together. Also, you might want to bring your micro-spikes. There could be snow and ice on the north side of Windy.
Salomon Running will be here so you can demo shoes and Orange Mud will be there to Demo packs!
7:00 a.m. - We will meet at the Horseshoe Parking Lot (Aid 3). This is less than a mile past the visitor center on Crawford Gulch Rd on the left. We will leave most cars here, which is where we will finish, and carpool with a couple cars to the Start area at Nott Creek.
Arrive early and get set up with Salomon Shoe Demos and Orange Mud hydration pack demos.
7:15 a.m. - We will carpool to the start of the race at the Nott Creek TH about 3.5 miles up Crawford Gulch Rd. from the visitor center.
Please print out and bring the course map and the written course description. There are many junctions and there is no way I can make sure everyone sticks together.
I will be running with the back of the pack. If you know the course please come join us and help keep runners on course.
