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!

Snowy New Year's Run

Seven NATRA runners, including two from Hawaii, rang in the New Year running in the last snowflakes of the big storm. We ran mostly in powder along the Karen Cooper section of the Flagstaff Urban Trail System. Running with former City Councilman Nat White, we learned that in the late 1980s this trail was the first section of FUTS. The City obtained a Heritage Fund Grant and since Coconino Estates residents had already created what was known as the "Ditch" trail, this was the most opportunistic place to start. After the run Bruce Higgins treated all to coffee at the KickStand. Our next run is this Saturday along Wet Beaver Creek up to the "Crack" (About 7 miles round trip). We meet at 8:15 AM at Fort Tuthill at parking lot in front of Flagstaff Extreme parking.
