About NATRA Blog

This page is meant for folks to post their thoughts on the Saturday group run. I (Neil) will post a blurb about who showed up and where it was held. From there, I hope that other runners will share their thoughts since we often have different experiences on the same run. Enjoy!

Sandy Canyon and FUTS 50 Celebration

What a day for Flagstaff. While I wasn't running, I had a fun time photographing the group run at Sandy Canyon. Thanks to Aaryn Baltutis we have a google map and elevation profile of the run (see pics). I then zipped off to the unveiling of the monument marking the 50th Mile of the Flagstaff Urban Trail System. It was a great turnout with many of the original visionaries, planners and supporters who laid the ground work for the trail system in the late 1980s. Vice Mayor Celia Barotz unveiled the monument and the celebration began. City staff handed out t-shirts, bandanas and caps to attendees and NATRA secured a handful of prizes to be raffled off at future group runs! Download photos from today's events!
