Flash - Capilano Nights 1106

16 Mar 2011 19:00

The Yellow Beacon, North Vancouver BC

A week-day evening trail run, in a group. Expect mud, rain, cold temperatures, total darkness, slippery roots and stairs.
Getting your post-work day, winter-time trail run done is less miserable with company. Even if you already know (and bored of) the trails in Capilano Canyon, I promise you’ll see something new, and besides, everything is different in the dark.

Meet at the Yellow Beacon (Ean and Sibylle's house). If you need the address, please comment below.

It's a secret, but there will be a short briefing at the start. Will consist of a 60-90 minutes run on roads and trails (50/50) in and around Capilano Canyon.
Different route every week.

Park route map is available here.

The Plan:
Meet at The Yellow Beacon, short briefing, start running in a group led by me at a
slow (!) pace, finish at the Yellow Beacon, go home and rest.

Is This Run For Me?
We'll be going at a slow pace (>10/mile). You should be comfortable with trail running, and with running in the dark.
Mostly these are not very technical trails, and we are in the middle of the city; however it will be dark, cold, wet, muddy, and slippery. You may fall. You may also have a lot of fun.

Don’t forget:
A good strong headlamp/flashlight, a cellphone and a silver emergency blanket.

SLOW is good - I run, but I'm still fairly new to trails. :)
