I've been running trails for about 15 years now, and luckily have always made it home when I planned to (or at least within a couple of hours because I was having too much fun). Because we trail runners tend to go fast and light in comparison to hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts, if the weather turns or something happens at one end of a run, things can turn bad pretty quickly.
Megan from High Heel Running Group organized an event happening Saturday that is sure to be loads of fun, informative, and a great way to give back to Seattle Mountain Rescue, the local all volunteer group that saves many a trail runner each year. I donated a massage gift certificate to the auction, that will also include all kinds of good stuff, for a great cause. Come out to show your support! Tickets are still available here.
