Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.
*** NEW START TIME THIS WEEK :: 6:00 P.M.***
This is my first time leading this trail run although I have run it many times. We will keep the group together a little more than usual given that I don't know the trails like the back of my hand like George does.
HOLA after the run for those who are interested!
Join me as we "LIGHT" up the trails with a trail run mixed with some seriously fast hiking. The VCTR will get that heart rate & step count up right out of the gate...This week day D4 trail run (which is just as much running as it is fast hiking) 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. Conditions have been a little sloppy out there, expect some loose terrain - trekking poles are always advised.
This FAST hike/trail run is along various trails at Vickery Creek CRNRA (in a top secret special direction) there are no formal stops planned. The average overall pace will be in the sub 14 minute/mile pace (or quicker). So, if you haven't been on any FAST AOC D4 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 will ask you to try again after a few months...Safety first, respect to the others second.
Rain or Shine...althought I prefer the latter.

|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.
BRING A LIGHT SOURCE IF YOU'RE SCARED OF THE DARK!
LEAVE NO TRACE!
