Third Thursday Adventure Series
9/20/07 West Tyson Park
*Dave Welsh got stuck behind the wreck on I-44 and arrived too late to race
so he put on his headlamp and picked up a bunch of the markers - thanks Dave!
The final sprint of the year was held in the steep woods of West Tyson. After a summer of close
competition at the city venues, David Frei asserted his dominance with a
convincing win on his preferred terrain. Daylight was an issue with the sun
setting just as competitors were getting underway. After 20 minutes it was becoming difficult
to read the map. Several decided to pack it in rather than continue in the darkening woods.
Next month we switch to adventure runs. These are a cross between trail running
and orienteering. Everybody starts at once and the course is designed so that the
preferred route is trail (through you can cut corners through the woods if you want to).
It will definitely be dark, so bring a light. October's run will be a 5K at Forest 44.
