View Full Version : I trail ran the PCT this weekend

I ran the Campo to Lake Morena section, 7 miles of it anyway. From the chicken ranch back to the border patrol station and from Lake Morena to Hauser Creek. I also ran Mt. Laguna campground to Desert View Picnic Area. Running the PCT is fun because the grade is really gentle. It was pretty out there, too, with the wildflowers and lots of water in the creeks. I ran in NB MT100s, which are new to me. I really like them but had to cut the back part that rests against my achilles an inch lower. I'm new to trail running but finding it kind of addictive.

Nice, sb. I'm kinda envious of people near the PCT. I hear it's much more runnable than much of the AT. Although the Damascus area is not too bad, once you get out of the gap.
Addictive -yes.
Here's a group run (http://imtr.blogspot.com/2010/04/lions-and-tigers-and-grouseoh-my.html) we did out of D-town weekend before last.
The garmin tracking is in two runs on my page. Took me two runs to finish it all :D
4/9/10 (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/29626445) and 4/16/10 (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/30255096)
had more trouble on the daylight half than the dark one.
Have fun out there.
