I look forward to seeing many of you at the Leatherman’s Loop this Sunday. Good luck to you all and we’ll run together next week.
This Sunday, April 20 at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow Parking lot when we run a new course that combines some serious hills with some wide-open trails to stretch your legs. The Meadow, Museum, Fire Tower to Michigan run is 6 miles of awesome that will give you a combination of steep slopes and gentle hills (pretty much in that order). There are some unexpected turns on this course so you’ll want to keep a map handy so you’re sure to stay on-course.
Sunday, April 20 at 7:00 a.m. For those who want to get an early start on the day, arrive at the Meadow Parking Lot at 7:00 a.m. for the The Meadow, Museum, Fire Tower to Michigan 6-mile run. Same run as above, earlier start time.
This Saturday, April 19 at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow Parking lot for and run one of two options. Option 1: run the The Meadow, Museum, Fire Tower to Michigan course as described above which is 6 miles or if you’re looking for a longer run, try your hand at Eleanor’s Escape but start at the Meadow and follow the BR trail to Kimberly Bridge and return from Michigan Road via FH. That’s about an 8.5 mile loop. Bring your own maps either way.
Next week is the Leatherman’s Loop but we’ll be back the week after that with more great runs.
Hope to see you Sunday.

This Sunday, meet at Mountain Lakes Park (201 Hawley Road, North Salem, New York 10560), when we race the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack. All that training and those course checks come down to this—a 10k trail race featuring a challenging course that includes the highest peak in Westchester—Bailey Mountain—and beautiful views of Lookout Point and Hemlock Lake. The weather all week will be beautiful and the conditions on Sunday, ideal. Registration closes at midnight on Thursday night but we’ll hold a few places open if you want to bring a friend at the last minute. On-site registration will be $40 and we ask that you have exact change.
Next week we’ll be back at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation in the Meadow parking lot to run the Dry Loop—that is, if you’re not going to be running Paine to Pain.
Hope to see you out there for this first annual Sarah Bishop Bushwhack.

Let’s change things up thus Sunday at a different venue. Meet at the Muscoot Farm parking lot for a run of the Run the Farm 5 mile course. Even though there are a couple months before that race, it’s always a great trail. Those who want a longer run can go back out for a second full or partial loop. You can see a map of the five-mile course here.
Saturday, August 24, 8:00 a.m.
Anyone interested in a Saturday run can meet at the pool parking lot in Mountain Lakes Park and follow the 10K Sarah Bishop Bushwhack. We’ll be doing some Sunday Runs on the course before race day so if you miss this, you’ll still have a chance to run before the race. You can see a map of the course here.
Next week we’ll be back in the Reservation at the Meadow parking lot to run the Meadow to Overlook course.
Hope to see you out there.

The Sarah Bishop Bushwhack is a challenging 10k trail race held in Mountain Lakes Park, Westchester, New York, and benefitting educational wellness programs in area schools. The scenic course is named in honor of the hermitess of West Mountain, who lived alone for more than two decades around the turn of the 19th century in a small cave beneath an outcropping of rock on the eastern slope of the hill.
On September 29, 2013, we honor her indomitable spirit and oneness with nature with the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack and Sarah’s Scramble 1.5 mile kids’ race which takes runners on paths near her cave in the wooded Mountain Lakes Park, a 1,082-acre forested landscape with five lakes, spectacular views, and a few hills in between.

The races will be held Sunday, Oct 27, 2013 with kids races starting at 8:30am. The kids races will be divided into two completely separate events – a 1.1 mile run for kids 7-12 and a 0.6 mile trail run for kids age 6 and under.Both kids events will be completed before the 5 miler is started at 9:15am.See race website for more details and logistics information.
We are happy to bring this event back for its fourth year. Runners love the scenic and tough 5 mile course. Kids are challenged with a great taste of the trails at Muscoot Farm in their very own races. The farmers at the market love the energy (and the business!) that the race brings out that crisp October Sunday morning.

One of the Sunday Runners, Brian Stempel, is race director for The Church Tavern Biathlon hosted by St. John’s Church in South Salem, NY, (a stone’s throw from The Leatherman’s Loop and Sarah Bishop Bushwhack trail races). While not a trail race, it’s still a fun event and Brian makes sure everyone has a great time.
From the registration page: On Monday September 2, 2013 (Labor Day) St. John’s Episcopal Parish will be hosting the third annual South Salem ‘Church Tavern’ Biathlon. Race start time is 9:30 a.m. and will proceed rain or shine. The Biathlon consists of a 7 mile bike and a 4 mile run. One of the main features of both courses is a steep trip up Church Tavern Road. Registration is now open ››
Did you know? Church Tavern was named after St. John’s Church because the church functioned as a tavern for part of it’s life in the late 1700’s.
