Mary Jane Summit Assault

Mary Jane Summit Assault

Steamboat Stinger Marathon

If you’ve read any of my blogs, you may know I like to trail run.  I started trail running (vs road running) the summer I moved to the Fraser Valley in 2011.  I didn’t know I’d be here 7 years later and I no idea that trail running would take me where it has.  I have seen a lot of trails, vistas, and wildlife as well as met many new people out there in our backyard.  I can’t get enough.  It clears my head and makes me happy.

I completed a trail marathon over the weekend in Steamboat.  It was a training run actually for my big run of the season – The Grand Traverse Run from Crested Butte to Aspen.  40 miles.  40.  Four – zero. 

I digress. The real reason for my post is the trails around here.  I thought I’ve seen a lot.  Run on a lot.  Hiked and skied on a lot.  I’ve never been running on the trails at Winter Park Resort/Mary Jane.  A friend just texted me to see if I’d be interested in the Summit Assault. I had no idea what she was talking about.  But, I’m in.

Check it out on Winter Park’s website:  http://www.playwinterpark.com/events/summit-assault

September 8th – you start at the base of the ski area in Winter Park and head up to the top of Mary Jane.  6 miles uphill.  The best part is the beer at the top followed by a chairlift ride back down.  What you may not know about me is that I like to run uphill.  The downhill is the hard part.  This will be right up my alley.  Never mind the fact that my 40 mile run is the weekend before.  I’ll be ready, right?  Hope you’ll join me and we can enjoy the scene and some beers at the Alpine and Ales Octoberfest which starts at noon at the base of Winter Park.

Happy Running!
