All Race Fees to Benefit the Rocky Mountain Youth Corp
– The 2nd Annual Pleasant Valley Fall Trail Run is scheduled for Sunday, October 2, 2016. The race/run will begin at 10:00 am. Register at Ski Haus. $10 donation entry fee will benefit the Rocky Mountain Youth Corp. Donation includes a good looking Race T-Shirt. Kids 12 years old and younger are free.
The start line is on the east side of Lake Catamount at the Heritage Cabin (not at the Outfitter Cabin on the west side of the lake).
At the Pleasant Valley Fall Trail Run you can choose to run the Sheepherders Trail 1, 2, or 3 times. (Last year we included the Yurt Trail but that has been eliminated from this year’s run). By choosing between 1.5 mile, 3 mile, or 4.5 mile distances – you’ll be able to select the effort that best fits your style – run, power walk, or determined saunter! Elevation gain per lap – 431 feet.
Please note the fact that all are welcome. Some participants will go for it, give it their all, and push themselves beyond a hurt. We also want those who want to walk briskly, enjoy the beauty of a crisp Fall morning, and enjoy the camaraderie of a post event feed of fresh donuts and hot coffee (and hot chocolate). All are welcome.
The Sheepherders Trail offers an unique and beautiful view of the Yampa Valley that most of us don’t get to see very often. The course is not overly hard but it is not a cake walk either. There is a pretty stout climb and you’ll need to be nimble on your feet for the descent. A couple times around the trail and you’ll be feeling your good effort. Come on out and play. Come on out and enjoy the beauty and scenery of Lake Catamount. Hope to see you there!
