FASTPACK TRAINING 101
Join me as we "LIGHT" up the trails with a trail run mixed with some seriously fast hiking. The VCFPTR 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. I'm going to be introducing some "FASTPACKING" events soon, so this can/will be training for that. If you're not familiar with FASTPACKING check it out...it's sick!
This FASTPACKING 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 another time...Safety first, respect to the others second.
ALSO new - Social Distancing is a must - masks are your call.
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.
LEAVE NO TRACE!
