Local Running Routes
The new topo-map pages that Marty is developing have the following format: A Route name is given, followed by its Mileage. The section called Hillage gives a description of how hilly the course is in terms of total elevation change and average percentage grade. The percentage grade is the rise over the run expressed as a percentage. The average is an "absolute value" average, so that closed-loop courses won't have a zero average grade. Information about elevation change of the individual steep hills on the route is given. In the Description section there are directions for running the course. The Remarks section gives some of Marty's own remarks on the course. All of this verbage is followed by a color topographic map and an elevation profile for the course.
As always, exercise caution and good sense when running these routes. With the continuing construction on campus and in town, detours will need to be taken from time to time. Safety First!
I've been working on bringing all the maps over from our old site. If you have trouble accessing information at one of the links nbelow, go to http://nvrun.com/routes/routes.htm.
