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.

This Sunday, May 1, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Michigan Road lot when we follow the Michigan to Kimberly Bridge course. Michigan Road is our traditional starting point for runs in the southern portion of the reservation but this time we’ll run North from the lot to the Meadow, follow some of the Leatherman’s Loop course trail to Kimberly Bridge, then “up” the blue trail and return by way of yellow. There are some hills on this course particularly around mile 4. You have been warned. PDF of the trail is available here ››

Great job at the Leatherman’s Loop last weekend everyone. And good luck to everyone running the North Face Endurance Challenge this weekend. At last count, there are 20 Sunday Runners that are entered into the various distances. For anyone who wants to, come out on Sunday for a short loop to loosen up at 8:00 and then head out for brunch at Blind Charlie’s in Pound Ridge at 9:15 for a post-race recap.

And save the date Sunday, May 15, for a special run at Storm King Art Center that Tony and Nick Ohnell are working on. Date is subject to change and details are in flux but this will happen so be prepared.

April 24, Leatherman’s Loop

See you all at the Leatherman’s Loop. For those who like to get organized ahead of time, we will have early bib & shirt pickup at the entrance to Ward Pound Ridge Reservation on Saturday April 23rd from 10am-12pm. We will be in the WPA Gallery across from the entrance booth. Come on over — it will make race day a bit less hectic for everyone!

And don’t forget to ARRIVE EARLY! Please plan to arrive at the park before 8:15 a.m. — or even earlier if you can swing it.

The Ioop site has lots of good information so head over to leathermansloop.org for complete details.

I look forward to seeing you at the race.

And thanks for coming out this past Sunday for a great run. With the warmer temps, it’s great to have some time to hang out after the run and talk. But also with the warm temps, check yourself over for ticks. They’re out.
