#MOVEmber #Min20Min Challenge 

PRE-Thirsty Wednesday and THANKSGIVING night trotting!
Come get ONE FULL OUT & BACK at Roswell Area Park after work today. This is a hybrid trail run.  Shorter distance tonight in hopes we won't be too overworked for our Thanksgiving Day events. We'll be focusing on a easier start/warmup and easing back into our gravel routine, since the trail is a combination of packed gravel and asphalt (it's a bit more of a beating (for me at least)). There is little to no elevation and wide enough for running side by side, the pace will be somewhat fast once we warm up, but we'll settle into our grooves after a casual start. I may even throw in an off-trail (thru the fields) section to keep everyone on their toes.

Starting from the first parking lot on the left, we'll cover 3.1 miles (on the ORANGE TRAIL) at a steady, yet quick pace in a clockwise fashion, looping back around after the tennis courts.

Please arrive a few minutes early to stretch/warm-up, TL check in and introductions as we will be leaving on time. You may want to bring a headlamp since some of the sections are a little dark...but for the most part it is well lit.

Per Tom's request I will have post-event hot cocoa, tea & coffee + large marshmallows for anyone that wants it...and maybe CC Cookies :) 

p.s. this is the 10k map but it's the same path (just ONE out & back).



Required Items to Bring:

Water or gatorade to drink - I stage mine around the 1 mile marker so I don't have to carry it, yet I can access it a few times while we're out there...#LNT

Comfortable running shoes


Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

just in case - rain gear
