This Sunday, November 29, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Michigan Road lot when we run a course devised by Eleanor Heppner Hershey and aptly named Eleanor’s Escape. This route combines the best of the Yellow, Red, Blue, and Green trails and includes wide-open paths and single-track hills. Optional photo op at Raven Rocks before heading back by way of Red and Green. I know you’re going to love this one. Anyone interested in getting an early start can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for some bonus miles. See Eleanor’s Escape map here ››
Friday, November 27, 8:30 a.m. Anyone interested in a post-Thanksgiving run can meet at Mianus River Gorge at 8:30 a.m. for a 5-mile out-and-back run. Since the Gorge will be closing November 30, this will be the last chance to run there this year.
Saturday, November 28, 8:00 a.m. Meet at the parking lot of Leon Levy Preserve in South Salem—just south of Rt. 35 on Rt. 123—and be prepared to run a 5.25 mile course that winds through most of the trails in the preserve. Sure, the map is hard to follow but the trails are marked so what’s the worst that can happen, right? See the map here ››
Next week we’ll be off the reservation at Sylvan Glen with the option of creating a team to take on the Taconic Road Runners in their Cross Country Relay. Gerry, Eamonn, Todd, Virgil, Keith, Tom, Joe…anyone interested in forming a winning three-person Leatherman Harriers team?
