Esti V Did my first trail run a few week back with Sportsbasement and Solomon....5km in 29.27min! Loved it!...Aiming for the 12km with their next event in January...

Katy D Odyssey Trail Running Rampage...up to 3 loops of great trail running and spectacular views, 2400ft elevation gain within the first 4 miles...since I am only "half" crazy, one loop was enough for me !

Katy D New River Trail is part of Virginia's "Rails to Trails" system. I planned to do 15 miles (out and back), but I realized at mile 8ish there is a trestle that spans the New River...I just had to cross it :)

Alex D 5k race last week in Hamstreet woods. Ground was hard but very rough, not so much running as leaping over the ruts in it! Great fun 34:20.

Jane H I ran trails at Dandenong Ranges National Park (home of the Kokoda 1000 Steps). I ran/walked 13.43km in 1:31:09. It was a beautiful Autumn morning, with the sun filtering through the tree canopy.

So I finally made it out into the wild frontier, since the biggest challenge is not being able to have my wife accompany me,(she doesn't run, but does Nordic walking) with our older Parson Russel terrier, Cookie who happens to be blind. There is no way to expect her to maintain even a slow pace and my wife does not like to walk alone in the forest, really can't blame her since the wild boar are starting to look for food and come ever closer to towns, so taking a through the woods can become quite suprising. Although on Sunday mornings this area of the forest is flooded with city folk who come out with their families to enjoy a little nature and fresh air.
I ran along the supposedly 5km running trail and as I always guessed and my Garmin proved the course is 500m short, but what the heck it is a nice run. It is alot more work to concentrate on sure footing amongst the moss covered sandstone and roots, part of the run passes around what used to be a Celtic fortification that is over 2000 years old, the archeologists have resumed researching there for the past decade as funding is available so it really is a interesting course.

Elaine B So much fun we did it twice; yesterday and today - go on run through that puddle; the dog loved it too.

Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
