Here are the first “this week’s runs” for 2022:
Tuesday, Jan. 4: Meet at Huffaker School at 5:45 p.m. and run through Bartley Ranch to the Pasture, then do Country Estates Loop back through the Pasture up Windy Hill then back to the school for 5ish miles or extend the route from Windy Hill then up Evans, down Ridgeview then left on Plumas then right on Manzanita then back to the school via Lakeside for 9 miles
Thursday, Jan. 6: Meet at Eclipse Running at 5:45 p.m. for Thursday night hills (7.5 mile route, see previous post for directions)
Saturday, Jan. 8: Meet at the dirt turnout at the bottom of Toll Road (if you are at the “Foot of the Grade” barn at the end of the pavement you’ve gone too far) at 8 a.m. and run up Toll Road, cross the Geiger Grade/Comstock Highway onto the Virginia City Highlands and Cartwright Road and follow Cartwright all the way to the V.C. Highlands Fire Station — if you turn around there and run back that’s about 14 miles; if you need more, extend the run by staying on Cartwright past the Fire Station then right up the steep hill on Stovepipe, then to the left as it becomes Frying Pan, then right on Overland, then right on Barrel Springs, then right on Lousetown, back to Cartwright and the Fire Station, then run back Cartwright and back down Toll Road for about 17-18 miles.
