Fun Run Update

Who's excited for Grandeur tomorrow?!

A couple quick notes- 99.9 % of the snow is gone from the summit. There are a couple small patches on the ascent and a couple more on the ridge coming into Millcreek, but it's basically all gone.

The trail (as of this morning) is marked. The flagging is minimal. A couple of flags at the summit, nothing for the last 2 1/2 miles of the descent into Church Fork, and nothing until you leave the pipeline trail and start climbing to get over to the west face of the mountain. Then there is flagging at the major intersections. I'm hoping that it all stays put, and we may have some early starters re flag any areas that are questionable. But the bottom line is look at the maps and stick with someone who's run it before if you are concerned about a wrong turn.

Other than that, it should be a beautiful day and I look forward to seeing everyone.

Erik, My friend and I are thinking of coming tomorrow morning and giving this our best shot. If we print out your course description and she and I stick together, we should be able to figure it out, right? Will there be enough flags to keep us on the right track? Let me know what you think...
