2014 Not Really Annual Christmas Run Report

JPL Runners home

24 runners joined up for a fourth, recently annual running of the JPL Running Club's Not Really Annual Christmas run. The run was held on the JPL Auto Show Friday December19, 2014. It was a beautiful calm, clear, and sunny day (pictures here), perfect for a run into the mountains. Melora Larson and Sam Dolinar tag teamed to be this year's co-Run Coordinators (aka "race director").

To live up to its name, the run was done up the Brown Mountain fire road, with several people going as far as the end of the Brown Mountain Road (strava profile coutesy of Evgeniy Sklyanskiy), and some making it a loop by returning from the Junction via El Prieto Trail. See comments and a list of participants below.
