    Default Kelly Flats



    I finally had a chance to run Kelly Flats for the first time 1-2 weeks ago. It starts with a steep climb of Heart Attack Hill and ends with a fun obstacle called the Chutes. Great drive through Poudre Canyon and some impressive views from the top. Being my first run, I chose the left side of Heart Attack Hill. I think this was a good choice for me, as apparently a gentleman in a group a ways behind us rolled on the right side.

    I'd be interested too - though I might be heading to Den with family one of the days this weekend.

    I like that the rock was left as-is (vs moved).

    Nice videos. The camera person did a good job keeping the camera steady and on the action. Also, it's in HD

    Both shot on my iPhone 5S. I'm always handing it to people to capture shots and videos. I upload straight to YouTube from my phone. I've been very happy with the phone camera. It now supports slo-mo with iOS8, which my daughter inadvertently found out on my first run of the obstacle. Which is why I had to run it again.
