Timp Trick or Treat 2012

October 26, 2012

10 runners, 21 miles and a notion of a snow filled summit. Running from Aspen Grove to the summit of Mt. Timpanogos and down Timp Basin. Self Supported about 22 miles. The run began at the Aspen Grove TH at 7am, more like 7:15 by all accounts. This TH is just north of Sundance Resort outside of Provo, UT. We ‘ran’ up the Timpanogos Tr. to Emerald Lake to the Summit trail. Getting slight head start on the fast folks, we expected to see Matt Hart, Ben Lewis and Evan Honeyfield shortly after we started. To our surprise, they took a scramble past some falls and for fun added mistakenly some extra miles. Andrea and Mark keep it very interesting with various renditions of the Gangnum style running, a new fad which will be hitting the Ultra scene in the coming months.

For the full loop, we descended through the Timp Basin to the Timpooneke Campground. Missing the water just above Scout Falls, we rendezvoused at the Timpooneke TH. To our surprise, the Lost Boys did not catch us. So we left very beautiful and well made trail markers at many of the remaining trail intersections out of rocks, sticks and other crude methods. It is about 16 miles to the Timpooneke Campground. We then ran the trails connecting from the Timpooneke CG to the Aspen Grove TH (150, to 159 to 55). This is a fantastic run with friends, followed by a fantastic picnic. Good times.
