This Sunday, April 2, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the gazebo at Leonard Park in Mt. Kisco (see map) when we tackle some different trails. We’ll start in Leonard park, go through Marsh Sanctuary, Merestead, Butler, and Westmoreland Sanctuary. Runners will have a choice of various distances. Anyone interested in starting early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a few extra miles. No earlier starts this week.
5 Mile Run: Take the course through Marsh and Merestead to the Butler loop.
7.7 Mile Run: Follow the Butler loop which adds 2.7 to the run for a total of 7.7 miles.
10 Mile Run: Cross the road to Westmoreland Sanctuary for a short loop.
13.1 Mile Run (approx): Anyone interested in going farther can try the Leonard Park to Westmoreland Greenbelt Half Marathon which adds the perimeter course of Westmoreland. And if you know how to get to the Meyer Preserve, you can make this run even more epic.
On Saturday, April 1, at 8:00 a.m., if you missed the Dancing Rock run or you just can’t get enough, meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Michigan Road lot for a special run on a classic course designed by Tony—The Dancing Rock Run. This is a looped course of 7.5-miles including some significant bushwhacks. The course isn’t flagged, so you might want a map. Just sayin’. Early birds can start at 7:00 a.m. for a warmup before the run.
Some great running this past weekend. Seems everyone found a path through the park. Kudos to Charlotte Dequeker on Saturday for killing it on the Blueathon—17 repeats for over 22 miles and 7,000 feet of gain. You are now king of the hill.
