2018 Extreme Runners Thursday Night Trails: Season 12.

NOTE: You do not have to be a CVRR Member, and participation is free.

Meet at Extreme Runners for a 5:15pm sharp carpool departure, or at the trailhead in
time to sign up and find your group before our 5:45pm sharp departure of walkers and

Carpooling is very important. Parking is tight at many of the trails, it is a great way to
meet new runners and runners in other run groups. The environment will thank you too.

There will be at least one walking group, one to three walk/run groups, and five to seven running groups.
All groups except the walk/runners are out for one hour. The walk/runners will work up
to one hour. No one is left behind.

The 2018 schedule will be the same as last year with the exception of Northeast Woods replacing the second Nymph Falls every rotation. Twister is still under a toll. Northeast woods has had some upgrades since we last visited it.

Sorry no pets please. Service dog are always welcome.

We are a very social bunch. When the opportunity arrives, which is often, we have
potlucks at the lake and after-run drinks at several pubs around the valley.

I'm looking forward to another fun TNT season,
