Awesome Group Run This Saturday

My friend Catherine who I ran the Mid Mountain Marathon with a few weeks ago is coming down to southern Utah for a last really long run. She is running the Javelina Jundred too (her first 100!). We'll be running all day and shoot for 40ish miles.

If any of you would like to join for some of the miles we'd love to have you hang out with us. We'll be leaving my house in Hurricane Utah at 6am on Saturday the 21st. (You can email me at if you don't have my address.) We'll drive to the trail which is 10-15 minutes away.

The itinerary is to first run to the top of Molly's Nipple. It's 13 miles of mostly dirt road and nothing too challenging. I think most people will just be doing this first chunk of miles, a bunch of peeps have never been to the top of Molly's Nipple before.

The view from the top isn't too shabby either. (Group jumping picture at the top??)

After that I think we'll spend some time on Gould's Rim. It's a fairly level trail and most of it isn't too technical.

A run in this area wouldn't be complete without some miles on the Jem Trail.

There are lots of side trails around here to get extra miles. I've probably run more miles here than anywhere else in the world.

You can join for as many or as few miles as you want. I think it will be fun.


  1. I need to move to Utah just so I can come on these scenic runs!

  2. I'd love to come join in. It's just so beautiful where you run. This will have to go on my bucket travel list.

  3. Your pictures make me long to come back to Zion!!! You knew that Tim is working with Matt now co-hosting all these races in Utah, including Zion, I suspect. Not in the cards for me, unfortunately, but gaaaahhh - I love your pictures!

    1. I saw that announcement....and now have to rethink all my race plans for next year. These sound amazing. I'd love to head over your direction for a race sometime. Lots of tempting races in Colorado!

    2. If I come and run Zion, I'm staying at the Reese B&B ... no more daytime soap opera material :).

    3. I was, however, thinking of doing the 50 in Fruita in April....if you were interested?!?! Would be a blast!

  4. It's so beautiful there! I really wish I could. Have fun!
