The Sunrise Striders will host a Mike Shafai Tribute Workout on Thursday, Oct 18th, at 6:00 AM. Runners will meet at Plaza of the Rockies, 111 S Tejon Street. We'll do hill repeats that'll make Mike proud. Warm up via America The Beautiful Park and head south on the trail toward Bear Creek Park and over to BFNH (Big, Freakin' Nasty Hill, for you newbies). From there, we will do 12x60-second repeats. These should be an all out effort with an easy jog recovery back down. After #12, finish at the top and we'll get a group pic with everyone at Mike's Bench (hopefully the sun will be up by then). Jog easy back for coffee and reminiscing. It will be dark at 6:00 AM, so night lights are recommended.
Skip college football. Make it a Summit Day! Be among the first to run/power-hike/scramble to the top of Cheyenne Mountain on Oct 20th, as the Dixon Trail up Cheyenne Mountain is ready. See Gazette article here. You can register here. There is a limit of 400 for the Half Marathon distance, which goes to the top of Cheyenne Mountain, and no limit on the 3 Mile option.
