I missed it too.
I'll be running DC this sunday morning around 730.
I'm out of shape and a NOOB so I'll probably only run from Pima to Water Tank.

I have been thinking of running up to Sunrise this summer for a little riding on the slopes.

I had a long detailed response on the trails and lost it before I was able to post it. Not going to retype it all over again and I can tell you details in person sometime.

Mormon, National, Telegraph Hill and Desert Classic trail in a loop was an ass kicker. 22 miles and took me 4 hours (22 minutes of stopped time included in that). Won't be doing it again anytime soon. Just wasn't fun for me on my X country 26er and clipped in. Very technical.

The trails at Pima and Dynamite that I rode on Sunday were a lot of fun. The flowing singletrack in and around the big boulders is a lot of fun.

Rode the road bike on Saturday as a recovery from Friday at South Mountain and did 22 miles in 59 minutes to put Friday in perspective.

Sounds like a great trip and escape from the valley heat.

Not sure how I'd fare on that 22 miles but I typically clock 10-15 miles flatland every time I ride and that usually takes me about 35-45 minutes depending on how hard I push. (MTB tires make that a little more difficult on asphalt) 22 miles in less than an hour is cooking, even on a road bike. Pretty decent average speed.

Too fast for me!
I ran DC from Pima to water tank and back in about 1:45. (just over 9 miles)
Plenty for my out of shape body.
May try to run past the water tank this weekend.

I live, literally 2 minutes from Mormon trail. Even hiking it on foot can get tiring

Guys do it, but climbing National Trail is another league that I will never be in. If you took every obstacle and isolated it by itself then I could probably clear almost everything but on the trail you have climbs with 5, 6, 7, 8 or more ledges ranging from a below the knee up to waist high. I just don't have the stamina or Hans Rey skill to clear that many back to back ledges or stuff that steep. I certainly tried on a few and ended up on my ass for it.

If you ride that loop I promise you won't care about your average speed.

Hats off to the guys that can ride that trail without the hike-a-bike!
