Training Runs for: 6/27-7/3

Here are this week’s runs: 

With a special shout out and sincere thanks to those who made Foresthill aid station at this past weekend’s Western States so special yet again. 

Tuesday, June 28: Meet at Thomas Creek Horse Trailer Parking lot at 5:45 p.m. and run the Dry Pond Loop for 6-ish miles; 

Thursday, June 30: Meet at Jones/Whites Trailhead at 5:45 p.m. and run Jones/Whites Loop for 9-ish miles; 

Saturday, July 2: MAYBE 48th annual Ponderosa Ridge Run, 10 am. at Spooner Summit Maintenance Station on US Highway 50 (on the downhill as you head away from Spooner as you head down toward Lake Tahoe). This 9.5-mile classic is one-way and is on jeep roads near the TRT and finishes at the Kingsbury Trailhead off Andria of the TRT, so you can turn it onto a 19-miler by running back to your car and having another car or a ride waiting for you at Kingsbury. No aid stations (water and sodas available at the finish). Entry fee is $2 to pay for the sodas and “Survivor” ribbons at the finish. No pre-registration. The race is usually held on the Saturday of Fourth of July weekend.
