Tales From The Trails:

Forest Park “Nasty Series” Group Run/Hike

Every other Saturday at 9 a.m. starting on April 5th Animal Athletics will be running and hiking a different “Nasty”. What’s a “Nasty”, you ask? In an attempt to find some decent elevation change while the higher elevations in the mountains were covered with snow, AA friends Geoffrey and Larry, strung together some routes in Forest Park that explore the “less traveled” paths. As you can imagine they include Firelanes, access roads, and trails that mix in lots of hills. Here is a list of the different “Nasties” and all of them range between 10-14 miles in length:  

  • *The North Nasty- April 5, 2014 (Meet at the intersection of Leif Erickson and Germantown Rd. at 9 a.m.)
  • *The South Nasty- April 19, 2014 (Meet at the intersection of Leif Erickson and Germantown Rd. at 9 a.m.)
  • *The Alphabet Nasty- May 3, 2014 (TBD)
  • *The Flaming Nasty- May 17, 2014 (TBD)    

*A turn-by-turn list of directions will be provided at the beginning of each Saturday. This is simply a group run but everyone is responsible for themselves (i.e. food/nutrition/water, etc.) Space is limited, so please RSVP at AnimalAthleticsPDX@gmail.com.
