June 2011 Monthly Trail Run

Stevens Creek County Park / Fremont Older Open Space Preserve
Annual gathering at Dr. Joe's
Sunday, June 5th, 2011
Continuing an excellent tradition, club member Joe Walter has generously offered to host a special trail run starting and ending at his house for our June trail run. The run is down and up the trails of Fremont Older Open Space Preserve - yep, we start at the top.... And when we get back to the top, at Joe's house, we will have the best runner's potluck ever, enjoying terrific views, the pool, and tales of the trail.
NOTE: Prior sign-up is required to join in this run as a headcount is needed in advance. To be in on event communications and to get the address of the event pls RSVP. Please see the "How" section. Please also remember to bring a potluck contribution.
When   Sunday, June 5th, 2011. Carpools leave at 8:00am for an 8:30am start at Joe's.
Where   Stevens Creek County Park / Fremont Older Open Space Preserve, Cupertino, More info on Fremont Older OSP can be found here.
How   Parking at Joe's house is limited. Therefore we strongly encourage carpooling. The carpool will leave at 8:00am from the south side of Kennedy Middle School in Cupertino. Parking should be available along Hyannisport Drive. Pls RSVP back to me by Thursday, June 2nd and I will then send out directions to Joe's house on Friday, June 3rd.
What   A long run (about 9.0 miles, 1000 feet of climbing) and an intermediate run (about 6.1 miles, 600 feet of climbing).
This is a remote trail run and each runner must carry at least one water bottle.
To avoid having to search for lost runners we ask every runner to find other runners of approximately the same running ability to form a group. The runners in each group must be able to account for their partners to make sure nobody is lost.
The potluck at this event is more upscale than at other PARC Monthly Trail Runs. No need to get overly concerned about this as anything you bring will be appreciated. But wanted you to know and to bring an appetite!
Why   After the run we will have the convenience of Joe's house & pool for the potluck. Bring your swimsuit.
No shoes are allowed in the house! Please bring some clean socks, bare feet are also fine.
Close to Palo Alto. Multiple vista points with expansive views of Santa Clara Valley and Stevens Creek Reservoir.
This course is hilly, but less so than some of our other trail runs.
