Squaw Peak Scramble Poker Run WARM-UP

Reminder: Reminder we’re on for a group trail run Wednesday morning in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. Meet 5:17 AM at the very top lot of Squaw Peak Drive North of Glendale Avenue. Plan on a little over one hour at a slow to moderate pace and preview potential routes for this Saturday’s Squaw Peak Scramble Poker Run. We’ll also talk about an upcoming trail maintenance initiative.

Last weekend was the inaugural Copper Basin Bad Ass 50K in Prescott. The weather was very warm and 4 runners endured to complete the entire course. Brian Tinder (5:57), Joe Galope (6:01), Jody Chase (6:15) and Jamil Coury (7:35) who also marked the course. Others who ran 22.5 Miles: Rachel Jones (4:48), Bridgette Schiess (4:50), Mike Melchiors (4:50), Paulette Zillmer (4:50), Liz Everly (4:50), Karen Bea (5:16). 10.5 Miles: Pati Coury (2:45), Burke Painter (3:38), Julie (3:38). Thanks to Nick Coury for organizing!!
As noted above, this Saturday is the Squaw Peak Scramble Poker Run. Meet at Dreamy Draw Park at 7:30 AM for instructions. Gun goes off at 8:01 AM. This is the best no fee fun-run in the area. Yes we are in still in a recession. We didn’t receive any Obama Money but we still have swag to give away!!! Yippy! The best poker hand is the Grand Prize Winner and receives the traveling trophy. Other prizes include Suns basketball tickets, custom metal artwork by JJ & miscellaneous stuff.
