Summit Middle School Tiger Trot to run in Tenmile Canyon

Daily News staff report

Summit Middle School will conduct the eighth annual Tiger Trot between 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. Friday on the Tenmile Canyon recreation path between Officer’s Gulch and the west edge of Frisco.

The event, in which 650 Summit Middle School students run 5 kilometers, has previously taken place on the rec path between the Dillon Dam Road and the Summit Middle School.

This year, the event will be run in Tenmile Canyon to address traffic and student safety concerns on the Dillon Dam Road.

“The Tiger Trot promotes exercise and healthy habits for our students,” said middle school athletic director Travis Avery. “It is something the staff and students look forward to every year.”

Traffic from the event will cause heavy congestion on the Tenmile Canyon rec path from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

“”Rec path users headed toward Tenmile Canyon should use caution and expect delays during the event,” said Summit County Open Space and Trails resource specialist Scott Reid. “We thank the pathway users for their cooperation in making way for this important event for our local middle school students.”
