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!

Solstice Survivors Run

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.
