This is pretty much guaranteed to be a brutal, brutal day. Which means it should be amazing. The plan is to meet in Canmore at the EEOR parking lot at 6am. Yep, early. I'm sleeping in my car somewhere the night before. First, we're going to scramble up EEOR. Then we going to scramble DOWN EEOR. Then we're going to run the Goat Creek Trail to the other side of the mountain. Then we're going to scramble up WEOR. Then we're going to scramble back down WEOR. Then we are going to run back to the EEOR parking lot along the Rundle Riverside Trail. The specs - we're looking at something in the neighbourhood of 2500-3000m of elevation gain and about 65km of distance covered if I'm google-mapping this right. This will be a frickin huge day. You need to be able to move pretty quickly, for a lot of hours. Not everyone is super confident of their ability to do the full buffet of suffering, so we're going to stash a bailout car on the Banff side where Katherine will likely tap out (where exactly we stash a vehicle remains to be determined, but that's a tomorrow problem) - so you don't need to be certain you can do the full thing - just certain you can do EEOR and then run the 22km of trails to Banff. If it makes sense, we'll split into two pace groups. When you sign up - please indicate if you think you're likely to do the complete sufferfest buffet or if you're more likely down for just an appetizer sized portion of misery. Please feel free to carpool to the start, but Katherine and I will already be out there so we won't be taking part in the carpool.
