Unofficial runs before summit?

Is anyone planning on organizing a run on the day or two before summit officially begins? Last year we met up with a group who did some of the gulches and there was talk about a night run on Yankee Boy. If we can run one of these trails before summit officially starts then that will make a difference on what trails we might sign up for as an official run.

There are always informal runs leaving from Summit HQ on Wednesday. Just wander around and ask.

We'd be up for a Wednesday run up Porphory Gulch (I may have spelled that incorrectly...)

I'd be up for leading a sunset-into-night run Wednesday, either Imogene or Cali/Corkscrew

Re: Unofficial runs before summit?

The unofficial run we did last year on Wednesday was the best run we did last year. Hopefully we will get on a good one this year again.

I'll join if we can get a group together. I've had no luck getting a spot on an "official " night run yet.

Re: Unofficial runs before summit?

I might do an unofficial Overnighter to the summit again this year. In '16 I had only one taker but he liked the trip so much he gave me a $100 camp chair as thanks. If I decide to run it again I'll start a new thread. Photos from last year.

Re: Unofficial runs before summit?

I'm actually hoping to get up there a week or two before the summit and run some trails (providing they are open by then) with some friends that can't make the summit and to nail down the trails before I lead them. I may even do a Wednesday run just before the summit, not sure to where or what time though.
