The Cummings Adventure Run on Sunday 5/21/2017, the course was finalized and the volunteers had
signed up. We had a new map to use for an adventure run
To create a new map takes lots of time and lots for field work. Tom Rycroft ran lots of miles GPS ing the
trails. The base map was done by Tom Rycroft. Field work and drafting by Greg Michels, Tom and Erin
Rycroft, Linda Kohn and Rick Worner. Greg Michels was the course setter for this event. He had assistance
from Tom, Erin, Linda and Rick Worner choosing control points and vetting the course.
As we drove to the Cummings Nature Center it was looking like it was going to be a beautiful day. The
volunteers arrived and registration was opened. The maps were handed out and runners planned there routes
and which controls they were planning to get. As it got closer to the start time the skies got dark and the rain
started. However after the race meeting and the runners went to the start area the sky cleared and everyone
split in different direction. The weather was nice for the rest of the event.
The runners started to come back and talked about their adventure, some were wetter than others and most
had some mud. Some of the comments were: the locations of most of the controls were very picturesque
especially by the stream junction. The view here is amazing. The skidder trials were confusing and some were
hard to navigate through. Can’t wait for another event here and a more mature map.
