Location: Umstead Park, Cary, 27513. Harrison Avenue entrance. From I-40, take the Harrison Ave exit. From the West, turn left on Harrison. From the East, turn right on Harrison. Follow Harrison into the park. We meet in the middle of the parking lot.
Route: We run 10 – 12 miles, with options for shorter. This is difficult running. Most of the run is on single track hiking trails, which are full of roots and rocks. There are also many hills. The route is announced just before starting to run. If you do not want to run as far, let me know and I will send you on a shorter way back. If you decide to depart from the group during the run, please let me know so that I do not look for you once I notice you are missing.
Pace: Your pace in Umstead will be much slower (as much as 2 min/mile) than your pace on asphalt due to roots, rocks, hills, heat, and humidity. Suggested paces for this run are those who run a 5k between 22:00 and 30:00.
