Mt. Diablo Heat on Mt. Diablo

Post date: Aug 18, 2014 4:20:28 AM

What a great way to start the XC season--a hike and run up Mt. Diablo followed by a family picnic! Eighteen Mt. Diablo Heat athletes joined their parents and teammates in an ascent of the 3,849' Mt. Diablo of our team's namesake. Although the day was hot, we had parent delivered supplies at mile 4.5 of the 7.5 mile hike and again at the summit.

The picnic was enjoyed by all though hungry runners consumed Lauren's brownies before plowing into hot dogs, salad and pasta. A family of raccoons even joined toward the end to help with clean up!
