 Dear Mt. Wilson Trail Race Competitor/Follower:

 The 14-Week MWTR Training Program Starts on Saturday

Join super trainer Simon Cooper for his first training session, this Saturday, July 10, which is 14 weeks before the race. 

 As with most of the program days, everyone will meet in Kersting Court at the corner of Sierra Madre Blvd. and Baldwin Ave.  

 However, there is a new time: 6:30A, as Simon wants to have a little cooler weather and get you off to the rest of your weekend by 9:00A-ish. 

 I don’t know of anyone who did not get positive results from this program.  You will be more fit, more confident, and more ready to take on the mountain on race day. 

 Simon has a gentle and humorous manner about him, despite kicking your butt when he feels it necessary!

 Simon has posted the entire training program on the website, so you can start planning your Saturdays accordingly . 

 There will be some special Saturdays that Simon has scheduled for out of town training, so make sure you make note of them on your calendar in advance.

 Another date to note is the “Fat Ass Run” a tough but good warm up to the MWTR on Saturday, October 2. 

 We will be going up Bailey Canyon from Kersting Court, then over the connector to the Mt. Wilson Trail and back home.
We Had Our First Kick-Off Trail Work Day!

Thanks to the twelve great people who worked in the hot sun on Sunday, June 27. 

 We put in a new wall just up from the helispot, and drove stakes for a second wall, which will be finished in the next few weeks. 

 If you use the trail, you should contribute to its upkeep, which is all done by volunteers.  Send a check of any amount to Sue Spears. 

 It needs to be made out to the Fletcher Fund – Sierra Madre Community Foundation.  Sue’s address is 80 West Grandview, Sierra Madre, CA  91024.

 Our next trail work day is Sunday, July 25.  We will meet at 7:00AM at the tool storage locker just above Lizzie’s Trail Inn. 

 Bring sun protection, gloves and water with you.  We will be up on the trail for a few hours, followed by some refreshments at Lizzie’s.
