 This event is meant for women new to the sport of trail running. We’ll run an easy pace on Cougar’s gently rolling trails, past a lovely waterfall in a lush forest. The Coal Creek Falls Loop  is a mix of gravel trail and rooty single-track.  Expect some muddy areas.  Sunset is 7:45 pm, but the woods get darker earlier, so please bring a head lamp. Be prepared for the conditions, it could be cold, wet, or balmy!
