:: NOT YOUR TYPICAL WEEKDAY D3, 10k the hard way ::
Please, read FULL write up:
HAPPY THANKSGIVING Y'ALL!!! Join me as we light up the trails with a quick stepping fitness hike/TRAIL RUN that will get that heart rate & step count up right out of the gates...This week day D3 run/hike will see some nice elevation, as I take you along what I affectionately dub my "training grounds!" We might hit a coulple of the same paths twice but never in the same direction. This is NOT a "check out the scenery" event and there will be small sections where we RUN, so be prepared for that! Conditions have been a little sloppy, expect some loose terrain - trekking poles are always advised.
This is a FAST PACE training/fitness hike & RUN along various trails at Vickery Creek (in a top secret special direction) and we might be re-grouping at the top of the steepest climb (to be announced before ascending) if needed, but there are no formal stops planned. The average will be in the sub 17 minute miles for sure, but don't be surprised to see some 12 minute + miles. So, if you haven't been on any FAST AOC D3 hikes recently you're probably not going to like this hike - saying it's fast is an undestatement. If I see you falling back pretty far within the first mile (or two) I may ask you to try again after a few months...Safety first, respect to the others second.
Conveniently located in historic Roswell, GA, the historic "Vickery Creek" unit of the Chattahoochee River Nat'l Recreation Area (CRNRA) boasts an amazing variety of shady creekside and ridgetop trails and is one our Club's favorite places for hiking (mine for sure).
Early Turkey gets the Fryer :P :: Go LIONS!!
|How to Get There:|
We will meet in the parking lot off of OXBO ROAD (south side, between Atlanta Street and Dobbs)
The address is near :::
Arrive 10-15 minutes early to get head count and intros in. There are no bathrooms at this lot. The GPS link above is pretty accurate too.
LEAVE NO TRACE!
