Looking for a way to start your new year off right? How about a nice 7-mile trail run? This new course is the perfect antidote for that hangover. Breathe in the air, get that heart pounding, and clear your head. Meet at the Lewisboro Town Park upper parking lot on January 1, 8:00 a.m. Oh, and if you’re not up for the full run, there are plenty of options to make it shorter. Visit the map page ››
This Sunday, December 30 at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Lewisboro Town Park upper parking lot (see map) when we revisit our favorite post-holiday route: the Fat Ass Run. This time, we’ll be running it backwards (no, we won’t be running backwards, we’ll be doing the course in reverse). Seven miles of trail running is the perfect antidote to all the indulgence of the holidays. And since this falls just before the new year, it’s the perfect time to make your new years resolutions to come run. For those who don’t want to do the full seven miles, a three-mile course is also an option. Now there’s no excuse not to come out. Download PDF map ››
Next Sunday we’ll be back at the Michigan Road lot when we visit Rob’s Ruin Run. And if anyone is interested, I’ll be at the Meadow Parking Lot on Tuesday, January 1 at 8:00 a.m., to start the new year off right—with a new trail run that will take us to the Fire Tower.
On Sunday, December 23 at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow parking lot when we tackle the run you’ve chosen—the Fire Tower run. We’ll start at the Meadow and head southeast and up to the base of the old fire tower. You asked for it, so enjoy.
Next week we’ll be back at the Lewisboro Town Park for another run of the Fat Ass Run. This time, we’ll reverse the direction just to keep it interesting.
The Free PDF Maps software now has a free trail map of the Reservation available here. I’ll make .kml files available as I can so you can load them as layer overlays. Now there’s no excuse to get lost.

We’re closely following Scott Jurek on his AT15 run to see if we can catch him en route.
