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!

Running Arizona Trail to Walnut Canyon View Points

Watch more videos on Flotrail

On May 26, 2012, 10 windswept NATRA runners ran to the view points off the Arizona Trail surrounding Walnut Canyon. As the cold front approached, grapple and rain showers pelted the intrepid gang. Unfortunately the showers were short-lived, just enough to bring out the sweet scent of the ground soaking up the scent moisture. Weary and sandblasted, runners returned for some piping hot coffee at "Its About Coffee".

The first trail race of the 8th Annual Flagstaff Summer Running Series saw a record smashing 500+ runners and kids under picture perfect skies at the Run for the Mountain 10/5K. Harvard's (and Tuba City's) Billy Orman's smokin' 33.36 eked out a victory over reigning Summer Series champion Chris Gomez's 33.53. Defending women's Series champ Sara Wagner (42.43) had a close call but out-kicked Michelle Gray (43.14) for the win. In the 5K Zach Chupa's 18.26 took the men's side while Lisa Hutchinson's 24.38 took the women's title. Next race is the Sacred Mountain Prayer Run on June 2. Register today at Virtualroster.com
