Unfortunately this event got post-poned to year 2007. We didnt get permits.

After our Rim to Rim in 2005 some of us decided to come back to GC and do R2R2R, so here it is. myself and pavan decided to plan the trip and start training.

Itenary is as follows:

Oct 5th(thu) depart SJ to LV to GC south Rim
Oct 6th(fri) Run from south to north , stay overnight at north
Oct 7th(sat) Run from north to south , stay at south rim
Oct 8th(sun) Drive to LV and fly back to SJ

Elevation profile from South to North:

Total distance :
46 miles.

We plan to train hard and use 50k's as the runs to build up for GC run.

Planned runs:

July 1st: Angel island 50k

July 30th: SF marathon or 20 mile hill run followed by 10 mile

Aug 26h: headlands 50k and a 2 hr run/hike

Sep 9th: mission to sunol (5-6hr)
hike to black mtn and back (3-4hr)

Excited about the training ahead and very much looking fwd to going back canyon and standing under those huge walls, and sitting in freezing bright angel creek.
