Report. The day dawned chilly, but clear... A perfect August weekend for a little run up the Hanes Valley. 9 people made it to the start line at the Lynn Headwaters park. After a bit of chit chat and greeting the brave newbies who trusted my word that there would be somebody to run with we set out up Lynn Valley. Amazingly enough, we all proceeded at matching paces and by the time Des and I turned around, everybody was still together. Ean and Paul made it to Norvan Falls, Banafsheh took Susan up to Grouse, with Susan continuing on the long course. Andy, Andrew and Marc ended up on a scenic detour half way up to Lynn Lake, luckily realizing their mistake. Andrew and Marc completed on the full loop up Grouse and down mountain highway, while Andy had to take the Gondola and a cab back to the car.
Sibylle picked up a knapsack strap off the trail and unless one of the group claims it as a lost and found item, she'll get a garbage point.
Thanks to TrailRunner Magazine, two of the group went home with an annual subscription. Nobody took advantage of the free beer at Mosquito Creek Pub today, the weather just called for more adventures ;-)
