The Lafayette Reservoir is a bowl with relatively steep sides and a big lake in the middle. There is a trail that goes around the lake, and one around the rim, with multiple radial trails connecting the two. The area is predominantly grassland mixed with fight, but there are a few runnable areas of forest present.
However, since we will be using a modified USGS map, blown up to 1:10000, and the vegetation is not well mapped, most of the running will be on the trails. This will be a good physical workout, requiring a lot of hill running, but it also will give you practice reading the map while on the move, and deciding the best route to collect the controls. Navigational difficulty will probably be mainly Yellow, with some intermediate-level controls.
After the run, we will adjourn to the Round Table Pizza joint for some suds and pizza.
