Flash - Quad Qruncher

Course | Results | Contact

What:  An 80K run on the Yours Truly course.

Why:  Because the Fools who brought you the Pure Foolishness runs want to practice fast walking uphill and to trash their quads with some fast downhill running.

Who:  The Fools and anyone who wants to join in the fun. 

Where: Malcolm Knapp Research Forest in Maple Ridge.  Meet in the parking lot.  For some interesting information and a short history of the Forest, as well as directions for how to get there go to the Forest website:


When: Saturday, February 13, 2010 at 07:00 

Course:  The Quad Qruncher 80K will use the 10K loop on the Yours Truly 50K course, which consists entirely of moderate elevation changes on non-technical gravel roads.


Here is a link to the 10K loop map on Rob Lang’s Yours Truly website:http://rlyt.multiply.com/photos/album/4/YT_10K_Loop

Rick Arikado kindly provided this map and profile.
The distances are, more or less, 1K of flat heading out, 3.5K of uphill, 1K of relatively flat, 3.5K of fast downhill, and finally the 1K of flat again back to the start. Eight loops in alternating directions and you deserve to go to the Black Sheep Pub for a burger and some beers.  Maps will be provided at the start to those who advise Karl that they will be attending.
Results: Will be posted soon after the event here.

Aid:  Be prepared to be completely self-sufficient.  There is no water or other aid available.  We will have access to our vehicles at the end of each 10K loop.
