Fox Trail Interval Workout Friday 11, 2013

Parents and Runners,

I want to start this letter by saying well done to the dedicated group that completed the Fox Trail interval run last week. That hill is a tough one so well done to all those that sprinted their way to the top (Max, Zach, Julian, Dustin, Reilly).
This Friday mixed into our workout will be a trip to Tennessee Valley Beach to see the aftermath of the newly collapsed Tennessee Valley arch.  Let the other runners know you will be there on our Facebook Page
When: Friday (Jan 18) 4pm
Where: Tennessee Valley Trailhead
Cost: $25

Upcoming Events:
Tennessee Valley TCRS,  January 20, 2013-  9:00 AM.  3.78 Mi.  Out and back hilly course starting at Tennessee Valley horse stables. Heads west on a downhill grade toward Tennessee Cove at the beach. First and last 3/4 mile is paved and the remainder is dirt fire road. If rainy, mud adds new dimension to race. Usually has large turnout with as many as 190 runners competing in the kickoff race of the year.  Directions – From Highway 101 near Mill Valley take Hwy. 1/Shoreline offramp toward Mill Valley and Stinson Beach. Approximately 1/3 mile from freeway, turn west on Tennessee Valley Road. Follow about 2 miles to end and park.  **Note for 2013 race! – We are urging ALL Tamalpans to carpool to the race, as the Park service is considering revoking our race permit, due to overcrowded parking conditions on race day. Please carpool from the Manzanita Commuter parking lot, or park at the large gravel lot on Tennessee Valley road a 1/2 mi. down the road from the stables. Thanks for your cooperation! Volunteers needed.  If you can help please let Lillie O’Reilly know!
