Mt. Wrightson Ascent - 9/9/18 - 5.2 miles to the top

Great to see so many people turn out today! - we had 46 runners in all for this year's Wrightson Ascent, plus some family hikers and dogs. Big thanks to "George & Anne" - they're the ones to thank apparently for the super-clean Super Trail up top. They spent a couple weeks clearing brush recently and were on the mountain today for their 443rd Wrightson summit.

Here's the roundup - hope to see y'all on the trails soon!

Sabino Basin - 9/16/18 - 13.7 miles

We had 34 TTR runners today (33 depicted below);  all of whom made it home safely. Thanks, I appreciated a relaxing, stress-free morning sitting around and chatting.  Alex Aldridge’s time is just for his Sabino Basin portion of the run, but he ran another dozen miles for the heck of it.  Robert, Billy and Fernando didn’t heed anyone’s warning, and ventured out for an additional Blackett’s in 90+ degrees and the midday sun.  Rumor has it, they didn’t have as good of a time as they had intended.  There should probably be an asterisk next to everyone’s times to indicate that the temps were, uh… higher than optimal.  Thanks all for coming out.

Madera Canyon / Mt. Hopkins / Mt. Wrightson / Super Trail Return (NEW!) - 9/30/18 - 17.5 miles

Yesterday we had 18 runners tackle the new route in full and 11 runners who came out for differentiating distances and route segments. For a new route 29 people is a strong showing.  The weather was perfect and the energy was electric. We had no runners go off trail and get lost for significant amounts of time and nobody got attacked by the bees! Many folks has a lot great things to say about the views of the route and the opportunity to summit both Hopkins and Wrightson. We had a good set of diversified opinions on the climb and the runnable down hill segments and all the bear scat. Some comments I took note of were "Super Trail, it just keep going and going" "I loved the climb, but all that downhill" ",  "f*** that s***", "I had enough of going up",  "there was bear poop everywhere",  "what are those bears eating, that looked weird".  The group was was a pleasure to be around and I am grateful for the opportunity to give back and be part of our newest route. Thanks to all the runners who came out to support this run and for all the smiles and positive energy.  The results are listed by hour below.

Florida-Madera-Wrightson - 10/14/18 - 26 miles

We broke last year's record turnout of 9 with a new record 14 folks toeing the line including 2 who drive down from Phx to join us. 5 hearty souls took on the whole 9,750 ft of climb, ~marathon distance course, 6 stuck to the  ~15 mi Florida Canyon Wrightson ascent, and 3 (5 counting Clyde and ... darn it Kaitlin & Andrew, what was your pup's name again?) enjoyed the ~9 mi Florida Saddle Out & Back.

No other new records this year, at least unrelated to the weather--it was easily the coolest year and with the most available water in springs and streams--what a gorgeous day for a trot! 

Thanks to all of you for coming out! Thanks to Joe Dana for Madera Cnyn aid! Long Live TTR!

Bear Canyon Loop - 10/21/18 - 17 miles

38 TTR runners on the course on the Classic Bear Canyon Loop (BCL) Course this morning.  The weather was perfect and all made it back safely, although there was some bleeding. Mike Duer suffered a disheartening fall and solid knock to the knee, but Rogelio Hernandez definitely takes the award most battle scarred runner with cuts to both legs and upper torso.  Since the course was overgrown and it appeared record times were off the table, many took the opportunity to take advantage of the late season rains and swim in the pools with the waterfalls flowing. It was my pleasure to support this great event and look forward to putting in some miles in the future.  Thank you all for coming out!!

Mt. Lemon Ascent - 10/28/18 - 18.6 miles

The word of the day yesterday was HOT and the comment we heard from most runners coming in was some form of dread they felt once they reached Romero Pass.  Despite the temps and the climb everyone came in mostly healthy and in good spirits.  Jim and I had a good time supporting and visiting with such a great group of runners.  A special thanks to those who helped transport runners back down, including Ben Markwart who drove all the way back up the mountain and gave Myk Brown a ride home!  Thank you all so much!

-Trish & Jim
