Flash - Burnaby Lake 50K

9 Mar 2013 08:00
Burnaby Lake, Burnaby, BC

What: A 50K run at Burnaby Lake, Burnaby, BC.

Why: A Fool has signed up for the Pacific Rim 24 hour run in mid-March and thinks that a little training might be of some value in that endeavour.

Who: Anyone wanting an early season 50K on a nice, flat 10K loop.  Or you may run whatever distance you wish.

Where: Meet at the Burnaby Lake Club House.  To get there take eastbound Highway 1 Exit 32 - Sprott Rd.  Go left onto Sprott Road and over the freeway .  Follow Sprott staight to its end past Kensington Avenue and park in the lot to the left of the Burnaby Lake Club House.

When: Saturday, March 9, 2013 - 08:00

Route: From the Club House follow the Burnaby Lake Loop counter clockwise.  Cross the Cariboo Dam at the east end of the lake and return on the north side.  Cross the Still Creek Bridge at the west end of the lake and go straight past the information board to the parking lot ahead of you and back to the Club House.  Now you can continue with the counter clockwise loop or go clockwise for a change of scenery.  Park maps will be handed out at the start.

Aid: Be prepared to be self-sufficient. There is water at the Club House and at the Piper Avenue washrooms.  We will also have access to our vehicles the end of each loop.

Results: Write your name, time and distance on the results sheet under the windshield wiper of Karl's silver Grand Caravan, LCT 280, parked at the start, or email your distance and time to Karl through the email link at the bottom of this event site.

Motto: Nothing is foolproof to a talented fool.

1 loop for me.  After being

1 loop for me.  After being down yesterday with the stomach flu, I didn't have a second loop in me.  
Good run though, splendid sunshine, good company with Kirsten, Karl, John and Nathan.  And 2 minutes faster over last week!

Still hoping to come, but am down with a stomach flu thing today.  Not sure yet if this will be short lived...hopefully!  I'll see how I feel tomorrow morning.
