Don't let the D-rating fool you, this is a soul crushing D3. It's difficult and it's an ULTRA FAST TRAINING HIKE - a percursor to the famed Vickery Creek QuickStep v8.6 & challenging v10.4.
Join me as we light up the trails with a quick stepping hike that will get that heart rate & step count up right out of the gates...Typically D3 training hikes are tame, but I assure you it's not your everyday D3 hike...it's a workout, and it's just what you'll need to move up the training chain to tapout on the v10.4! I'll take you along what I affectionately dub my "training grounds!" Conditions have been a little sloppy, so be prepared for some loose terrain - trekking poles are always advised.
This is a FAST hike along various trails at Vickery Creek, but since it's the shorter of the three QuickStep formats, we will only have rolling regrouping sessions if things break up, there are no stops, and no breaks planned (easy access water - like a Camelbak - are highly suggested). My average pace will be in the 15 min/mile range, don't be surprised if you have to run a little to catch up. If I have not hiked (or run) with you I will be contacting you to see if you're a good fit for this event.
Rain or Shine...althought I prefer the latter. Map is not actual course...
|How to Get There:|
We will meet in the parking lot at:
GROVEWAY PARK (Upper Fields)
Arrive 10-15 minutes early to get head count and intros in. We leave right on the time stated in write up ( a lil earlier if all are present).
LEAVE NO TRACE!
This D3 is a difficult hike due to pace...new AOC members and folks that have never hiked with me will be vetted.
Avg around 4 mph...for some that is a trail running pace, you've been warned :)
Note new meeting place!
