The call came out via a Facebook event: an opportunity to help clear the Truckee High School track. Since many of us enjoy training on the beautiful new track, lending a hand was an easy sell!
A solid crew of DPMR members showed up along with dozens of other community members to help clear the track with plastic shovels, hoping to get the school Track and Field back training outdoors.
“We asked…you answered,” reported grassroots organizer Rose Weskamp, “…we are so grateful to all of the 50 or so folks who SLAYED the snow and gave our athletes a place to train. We even had KOLO 8 news from Reno there with a film crew.”
Huge thank you to all the DPMR who lended a hand!
If you are looking for other snow-free surfaces on which to run outdoors, also consider these plowed bike paths: the Truckee River Legacy Trail; the Trout Creek trail from Downtown Truckee up to Tahoe Donner; the path along Squaw Valley Rd; and (now – breaking news!) the bike path along 89 from Squaw to Tahoe City.
