The Drifter time trial up hill run this Saturday will meet at the Negro Canyon trail head at 9:15am. There will also be a  carpool meeting at Truckee High School at 9:00am to drive up to the trailhead. There is no fee for any Far West members who want to come do it. It is about 1.3 miles and 900 feet elevation gain. We warm up up the trail about 1 mile to the start spot and the actual time trial starts at about 9:45 once we are all up at the start. Far West juniors are encouraged to come and race and adults are welcome too. It is a hard effort.

Based out of  (where else?) beautiful June Lake in the Eastern Sierra, activities will include some challenging & scenic runs, great roller skiing on spectacular roads, and also an incredible hike to the top of a 13,000+ ft. peak, where you will truly feel “on top of the world.” Combined with traditional fun games, swimming, and great camaraderie, the June Lake Camp is the one must-do training session of the summer.

Open to all Far West juniors age 13-19. A super fun and motivating camp for the ‘old hands” to the ‘newbies’. Camp consists of amazing hiking, rollerskiing, sightseeing, and technique-ing. Coaches will be Nancy Fiddler, Mark Nadell, Marie French, and others. Catering by Mac Gastronomaganza.
