This Mother’s Day Sunday, May 8, at 8:00 a.m., we’ll run a new course at Blue Mountain—The Twin Peaks run. We’ll meet at the Blue Mountain Lodge and make a counterclockwise loop around the park for a total of 7.7 miles. Options include eliminating the climb to Spitzenberg Mountain and saving a mile or making the loop to the Depew Court lot and adding a mile. You can follow the course on Strava. Once we’re back together, we can head over to Peekskill Coffee House at 101 South Division Street for a cup of joe. Looking to start a little early? Arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a warm-up loop. Try to arrive before 8:00 to avoid any parking fee.
And save next Sunday for a special run at Storm King Art Center. We’ll meet at the entrance to Storm King at 8:45 a.m. for a 9:00 entry into the park which will open early just for us. Tony and Nick Ohnell are working out a course through the park which will take us by some of the most amazing outdoor sculpture. After the run, food will be provided courtesy of Nick. Families are welcome so RSVP to let us know how many are planning on coming please.
Hope to see you out there this weekend.
