The second running of the Shamrock Run, previously known as the Stuck Truck Trail.
I originally called this the "Stuck Truck" trail. I have since learned that this trail is called the "Shamrock Run" by the locals.
St. Patrick's Day is a Sunday this year, so it seems like a good time to run the trail.
This trail is very scenic. It is not difficult, but it is rather brushy in spots. There are some good spots along the trail to setup for some VHF mountain-topping.
Meetup will be at the Chevron Station at I-17 and Carefree Highway at 7:00 AM.
Talk-in Frequency is 147.24 MHz +600 offset 162.2 Hz PL tone. This repeater has coverage on parts of the trail if you need to contact somebody in town.
Trail frequency is 147.52 MHz simplex.
I will be beaconing APRS on 445.925 MHz. You can follow my track on APRS with this link: N7IYT-9
Use this thread to coordinate the HF/VHF/UHF mountain topping event scheduled for Sunday, 3/17/2013.
I have some video from the prerun.
And some Video from Last year's run.
It is a fairly long run, it will take the whole day. The trail starts near Tip Top, and we will pass through Tip Top on the return leg of the trail.
Here is a map of the trail:
I have some GPS files from the Prerun in various formats:
