[mountainmilers] Re: Adjustments to the Whiskey Row course we've been running

The word is that there are to many runners going up Gurley St. causing a 
accident situation. We all know how tight it gets past Gail Gardner.  Also 
having to block traffic coming off Copper Basin onto what ever that street is. 
Cops don't want to do traffic control.
I have made a suggestion to Jessica that there be 2 or 3 10k corrals with the 
runners who want to win this thing start first, and the casual runners and 
walkers in the last. She and Ken will be working with this idea with the 
planning commission etc.
Moving the race "inland" solves this problem. I crossed the "finish" line at 
5.97 miles so we need to tweak it. Some of the hills may have to be put back in 
the start. 

I would rather change the course than have the city shut it down.
Dave

Subject: [mountainmilers] Adjustments to the Whiskey Row course we've been 
running


Y'all:
This AM I drove (yeah, I know...auto odometers aren't accurate) several 
different additional segments to the course we've been running on Sundays.  I 
was looking to pick up about 400 yards +/- as I wasn't really sure how far off 
we really are from the 6.2 miles we need.
Here are several options.  #1 and #2 are at the very beginning of the race and 
#3 is literally at the finish:
[1]  West on Goodwin, Right on McCormick, Left on Beach, Left on Summit, Right 
on Goodwin (past Hill St. and up the slope), Right on Park to Gurley.  Adds 
3/10th of a mile.
[2]  Same as #1 above only go a bit further, to wit:  West on Goodwin, Right on 
McCormick, Left on Beach, Left on Summit, Right on Goodwin (past Hill St. and 
up 
the slope), Right on Park, IMMEDIATE left onto Glandale, Right on 
Coronado, Left 
on Park to Gurley.  Adds about 6 or so 10th of a mile.
[3]  When we come out of Mile High Middle School on Carelton and hit Montezuma, 
keep on going East on Montezuma.  Then Left on Marina, Left on Goodwin, Right 
on 
Cortez and finish exactly where we know the finish to be, to wit at the 
intersection of Cortez and Union.  This Adds rith at 3/10th of a mile.
Your call.
Bests,
me

At least we're planning to run on Wednesday about when the "high" supposedly 
occurs during the day, right?  And, maybe, it will be sunny... as if that will 
help.  31 deg F...  Back to the Sherpa clothes, I guess!
