On a cold blustery day, 50+ Flagstaff runners celebrated the Winter Solstice by participating in Northern Arizona Trail Runners Association's Free Solstice Survivors Run in Buffalo Park. Due to the popularity of last year's epic Mayan Apocalypse Run to End All Runs 5K, Ramble Brothers and NATRA felt it was important to continue the tradition of running on the Winter Solstice.
The run brought out families with kids of all ages, and even an elusive sasquatch! A brief burst of snow as runners finished was the icing on the cake that marked the beginning of winter. Thanks to Flagstaff Brewing Company for the beer and whiskey specials for Solstice Survivors. Next up - Christmas morning run, 9 AM in where else, but Buffalo Park!
50+ runners excited to celebrate winter's arrival.
Heading off counter clockwise towards Mount Elden.
The sasquatch was really friendly especially so after the Old Milwaukee peace offering.
Flags Brew for beers and whiskey specials.
