Tips for Run Leaders (Save. Might be useful.)

1. How to select a Trail?
a. Pick a trail YOU want to go on

c. Consider distance/time required to get to trailhead.
d. Consider camping or accommodations if overnight run or long distance travel to the trailhead.

2. Pick a Meeting Place
a. Pick a Meeting Place that is easy to find with sufficient parking. Give directions to meeting place. Not just GPS Coordinates.
b. Prefer meeting near a gas station if possible.

3. When to Schedule a Run?
a. Any day and any time. Note: Runs scheduled for weekends are better attended.
b. Night Runs are best a few nights before a full moon. (More moonlight and the moon rises before dark so is high in the sky after sunset)
