August 16th – Trail Work Party #3!

Our club has agreed to trade a little sweat equity for our ability to host the Trail Running Series at Cougar Mountain each summer. Lucky for us, King County Parks & Rec has agreed to the trade! We are asking all of you folks who either race, regularly use the park, or just want a workout and a social time to come help maintain the beautiful Cougar Mountain Trails.

Think of all of those beautiful trails you hike or run on each year. Those were established by volunteers who selflessly etched out a way for you to be able to enjoy the beauty of this state.

Details:
Where: Sky Country Trailhead (map) (Note: trailhead may change, check back as date approaches to stay up to date)
Date: August 16, 2014
Time: 9am-1pm (There will be a lunch served afterward!)
RSVP via Meetup or email Katie Bates (bates.katiej@gmail.com).

Thank you!

WEDNESDAY NIGHT TRACK WORKOUTS

7-30-2014: From coach Uli Steidl, regarding tonight’s workout:
“We will meet at 21st Ave E and E. Interlaken Blvd (that’s 3 blocks west of Interlaken and 24th).
8-10 times 0.43 mile repeats. That’s the approximate length of Interlaken that’s closed to traffic. Rest will be 2 minutes jogging.
Bring a bottle. No bathroom nearby.”
Here is a map of the location specified. Please note we are NOT meeting at the Garfield HS track this week. Hope to see you there at or before 6:30pm! Hydrate!
