Box-Spring Trail Cleanup Event
Greetings SLC Runners,
On Wednesday June 24th, Pat McMurtry and I will be putting on another “voluntary trail cleanup event”, similar in nature to the Mount Olympus Wilderness Clean-Up Event from last fall. We’re hoping for around 15-20 volunteers to run a fabulous loop around Box Spring Hollow, starting and finishing at Affleck Park. Some basic details are below and I’ll add more later. Let me know if you’re interested.
Start time : Wednesday June 24th, at 6:00 PM sharp (please arrive at at least 5:30)
Start/Finish Location : Affleck Park – Group site #2
Length : 12.8 miles
Vertical Gain : 4,100 ft
Gear : Headlamp if you think it will take you more than 3.5 hrs.
Food : We’ll be having a small BBQ gathering afterwards which will be tons of fun. Feel free to bring food, beer, or other beverages.
Note : Some folks are starting early and some folks are starting at Big Mtn, which shortens the run by 2.5 miles and has 1,500′ less vertical gain (i.e. 10.3 miles and 2,600′ of gain total). Both are options… pick you poison. 🙂
