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 17, Meadow Lot

This Sunday, April 17, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow Parking lot when we run a 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. It’s easy to take a wrong turn, just sayin’.

For those who want to get an early start on the day, arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a 4-mile run of the BR loop.

Next week I look forward to seeing a lot of you at the Leatherman’s Loop.

This Sunday, April 10, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow Lot for a run of the Raven Rocks course chock full of great views, rocky climbs, ridgeline paths, meadows, ravines and the site of the former fire tower. We won’t be doing a course check of the Leatherman’s Loop this year but this is a great alternative course. See the map here ››

Those looking to start early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. and I’m sure there will be a few adding miles on afterwards as well.

Next week we’ll be back at the same location to run The Meadow, Museum, Fire Tower to Michigan loop—another great 10k-ish course that is a good training run for the Loop.

Hope to see you this weekend.

And thanks for all of the April fools that came out on the last jokingly snowy run. Apparently, the Mudders & Grunters race was cancelled because of high winds in FDR Park.
