Overnight Camp Final Details

Remember to register online or at the county office in Murray.  We will meet at the school at 1:00 Monday afternoon.  Remember that you will need to provide your own way to, and from, the campground-Redman Campground up Big Cottonwood Canyon.  Some will be carpooling, so talk with your teammates.  Also, remember that you will need your camping gear.  The rest will be provided for you. 
We will leave the campground at 12:30 on Wednesday after our morning run and relay race.  This is a great time for families to come up and spend some time with us.  The relay is a lot of fun to watch.  Talk to your folks about coming up Wednesday morning. 
This is one of the highlights of the summer.  Those who have gone before will let you know.  I hope you can all make it.

Tomorrow 7-24 and the overnight camp next week

We will meet at 7:15 at the same church that we met at a couple of weeks ago in Herriman.  It is at the corner of Jupiter Crest Rd. and Mt. Ogden Peak Dr.  It is about 14600 S. and 5000 W.  Remember that the access from 4800 W. has been closed. 

Next Monday-Wednesday will be our overnight altitude camp at Redman Campground in Big Cottonwood Canyon.  We will leave the school at about 1:00 and return about the same time on Wednesday. All meals will be provided.  We will be camping, so you will need to bring camping gear along with your running stuff.  You may want to get small groups for the tents.  No co-ed tents obviously (even if the other person is a sibling). 
It would be nice to have a few vehicles that we could use to transport runners to the different trailheads.  These trailheads are only a few miles from camp, but it is better to save our energy for the trails instead of the roads.
Here are the instructions for the registration: 
1-Go to
2-Click on Utah
3-Click on County Sports Office-Salt Lake County Recreation
4-Click on Register for Activities
5-Click on Camps and Clinics for Youth

7-Click on 2012 Youth Camps and Clinics
8-Scroll down the list to Riverton High Altitude Running
9-Click on Register and fill out the information
***Make sure to register A.S.A.P. so we can see how much food will be needed.***

Thursday-Hill Run

Thursday we will meet at Butterfield Canyon at 7:30 for our hill run.  To get there you will head west on 12600 S.  Continue past Bangerter Highway and you will come to a spot in the road where you will turn left (south) onto Herriman Highway (Main Street).  That road will take you in a SW direction and then it turns into 13100 S. Stay on this road and it will turn into 13090 S. (it is all one long road)  Eventually, this road will make a turn to the north.  Before the road turns north, there is a road on the left side that you will need to exit on.  I believe that there is a sign for some horse park in that area.  IF YOU START GOING NORTH, TURN AROUND BECAUSE YOU MISSED THE TURN-OFF.  We will be about 1/2 mile or so down that road.  I will try to park at the turn-off part to get your attention.

Tomorrow's Run-7/13 and the Bonfire Location

Meet at the park by the river bottom.  To get there you go east on 12600 S.  As the road dips down to the river bottom you will see a park on the north side of the road.  You will need to turn onto the street that is just east of the park and it will wind around to where we will meet.  Bring a watch. 

We will meet at the track at the school at 8:00 PM for the Bonfire Run.  The fire will take place at West Field Downs Park on 12050 S. and 2700 W.  You don't need to bring anything but your ideas and running gear.  This will be a great team experience, so make sure that you contact anyone who hasn't been to camp this week.  I know that there have been some people gone for other activities, but they will probably be back by Saturday night.
