Writeup by Ian Tidswell

We returned to Coyote Hills for the third year for our kick-off NOD events of 2004. The fast, open terrain is a great introduction for all and the cool weather and wind was perfect for running, but maybe scared off a few potential participants.

The courses, designed by Dean French, mostly kept to the Bay side of the hills to minimize the creation of new trails, a concern of the park rangers. This didn't eliminate route choices though, with lots of options for "up and down" or contouring.

The white course participants when right up the big hill for great views across the southern end of the bay. The yellow course involved some off-trail portions, while the orange course posed some interesting contour versus trail and climb options that seem to have been appreciated. We again had snacks and candy for all finishers. They seemed to be appreciated by all!

The white course was won by Toni Ouradnik, easily the fastest of the day. The yellow was won by Brian Hart, about 4.5 minute ahead of Justin Anderson. On the orange course, Syd Reader managed to beat out Martin Kunz by about 90 seconds.

Thanks go to longtime NOD sponsors, Brunton and Maptech.

As always the event couldn't have happened without the dedicated volunteers who came out. Dean French did a fantastic job as course setter for his first event. Kudos! Other key contributions came from:
