Starting Location: 101 Grand Ave, Glencoe, MO 63038 (trail head)
Parking Instructions - The 2nd paved parking lot will be our starting location (this is the one just before the mini train station and is the newest lot) - there is one at the corner of Washington and Grand when the main lot fills, and there are some gravel lots just past the train station closer to the trail itself you may use. With the 10K program wrapped up and many others already jumping into the road programs, we should be fine with all just meeting at the trail head lots and not have to meet at the car pool lot like before. We will get the run started by 7:30am with a group photo.
SEE MAP BELOW
Everyone will run up to the Bluff View overlook to start with which will put you roughly at or just over 2 miles to the scenic overlook. From there turn around and head back down the trail. Those in the 13.1 group simply continue on back to the parking lot the same way you started to finish the run. Those in the 50K group will make that first LEFT you come to on the way down, which should be around your 3.6mi into the run or so, follow this trail for roughly another mile or less. When you come to a "Y" intersection keep RIGHT to take the trail out to the paved Rock Hollow Trail, turn RIGHT and follow that down to the Al Foster gravel path. Keep STRAIGHT on the gravel path to now head back to the parking lot to finish.
These are intended to be simply shake out runs for those racing the next day (provided weather cooperates of course). Take them easy and use them to loosen up the legs and calm any jitters you may have.
