Big Tesuque Training Run - Sun. September 1, 8am

The Striders Group Run for this coming Sunday will be Aspen Vista to the Tesuque Towers, otherwise known as the formidable BigT. Come out and get some climbing miles into those legs and get a feel for the varying levels of oxygen debt along the route.

To carpool meet at Fort Marcy at 730am, or rocket-up to the Aspen Vista Trailhead for an 8am-ish departure. Group runs tend to go at a conversational pace, the lead runners periodically circling back or breaking to allow the group to pull together. Cut the run short if you need to get back, or add a few miles if you don't mind the separation anxiety. The full run is 12mi, 2,000ft of climbing, elevation 10,000ft-12,003 at the towers.
