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!

Watch more videos on Flotrail

16 NATRA runners headed up the scenic Sunset short course of Soulstice Mountain Trail Race (5 months away!). Erin Strout announced that Team Run Flagstaff is hosting "Going for Gold" a fundraiser for the Hall Steps Foundation to benefit Girls on the Run on 5/20/3012 from 5-7 PM at the Green Room in downtown Flagstaff. For more info visit Hall Steps Foundation. Buy your tickets today . They are much cheaper online ($15) today than buying at the door ($25)! Don't miss out on this silent auction emceed by the one and only Coach Michael Smith and the chance to welcome Ryan and Sara Hall to Flagstaff!

The trail was exceptionally dry and we started out by log hopping, with Bret's experience from Zane Gray, he made it look easy. After a grueling run, we returned to wind down at the Kickstand.

A fantastic weekend coming up! Flagstaff Summer Running Series Run for the Mountain race kicks the weekend off on Saturday May 19th and then the Hall Steps Foundation on May 20th! Never a dull moment!
