Just a reminder, the next Tortoise & Hare race is at Fossil Creek Park this Sunday, January 8, 2012. The distance is 5 kilometers (3.1 miles). The first runners start at 8:00 A.M.
Below is a course description:
Runners meet at the east parking lot for Fossil Creek Park; the entrance is on Lemay, a little over a mile south of Harmony.
The start is on the sidewalk on the west side of the parking lot. The runners proceed south along the east side of Portner Reservoir, then around the south and west side of the reservoir, heading up heading north. After crossing the entrance to the west parking lot, the runners will cross a large pedestrian bridge, then turn left (west) and use the underpass to cross the Fossil Creek Parkway. Using a combination of the sidewalk and bike path the runners will proceed west along the Fossil Creek Parkway.
The turnaround point is very close to College Ave. Runners will then turn around and go the way they came from. Outbound runners will use the sidewalk and inbound runners will use the bike lane.
Here is a map.
After the run, we’ll be meeting at the Rocky Mountain Bagelworks east location on Timberline (north of Harmony) after the run. Hope to see lots of you there as the weather looks good for early January!
