This Sunday, August 3 at 8:00 a.m., meet at Mountain Lakes Park (201 Hawley Road, North Salem) to run a new 6.2 mile loop that is a preview of some of the trails for the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack. Park in the pool parking lot and start on the shore of Hemlock Lake heading to Lookout Point and run the course as shown on the map. We’ll go over Bailey Mountain and take the OS trail before returning to the Hemlock campsite. Those wanting a longer run can regroup and go out for some added mileage. See the map here ››

Anyone interested in a run on Saturday, August 2 at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Trailside Museum and test out next Sunday’s run—Trailside, Raven to Tower 6 Mile loop. It’s been a while since we climbed our old friends the Magic Stairs and that’s just the first of two sizable climbs on this run. Download the map here. Enjoy.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

This Sunday, July 27 at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Muscoot Farm parking lot (http://goo.gl/maps/dTDiT) when we run the perimeter Run the Farm loop. This 5-mile course will start from the parking lot at 8:00 and follow the Run the Farm loop with the exception of finishing in the parking lot. You may also want to avoid the final field which is likely unmowed. Registration for the race in October is now open so sign up. You can download a map of the five-mile course here. Remember, don’t park on the road, don’t touch the farm machinery, stay out of the farm area, and please park on the western side of the lot, away from the farm.

Saturday, July 26 at 8:00 a.m. For those up for a Saturday run, meet at Mountain Lakes Park (201 Hawley Road, North Salem) to run a new 6.2 mile loop. While the map shows the start near Hemlock Lake, start instead at the trail head to Lookout Point and run the course as shown which includes Bailey Mountain and the OS trail. Don’t worry if you miss it, we’ll be running this next Sunday. See the map here ››

And speaking of races, only 11 weeks to train before the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack. Sign up soon.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

This Sunday, July 20 at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Parking lot to run a new variation of an epic run—Eleanor’s Escape.

This Sunday, July 6 at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Trailside Museum when we run a new course—Trailside To Overlook. This will take us towards the Overlook via Schoolhouse Road and then back via Kimberly Bridge. If the weather is warm, you might want to take the water crossing before you return via junction 2 so keep an eye out for a small trail on your left before the bridge. You have options for making this run 7.7 miles, 6.3 miles, or 5 miles depending on which route you follow.

Saturday, July 5 at 8:00 a.m. For those who want to run on Saturday, meet at the Westmoreland Sanctuary main parking lot in Mt. Kisco and run the Perimeter 5.2 Mile loop in a counter-clockwise direction. Bring a map, though, while the trails are marked, it’s easy to take a wrong turn. If you miss this run, don’t worry, we’ll be back here next Sunday.

Friday, July 4th at 8:30 a.m. Start your long weekend off right and meet at Mianus River Gorge when it opens for a 5-mile out-and-back run on these beautiful trails. See the trail map here.

There you have it—three great runs at three different locations. Hope to see you out there this weekend.

June 29, Meadow Parking Lot

Click for map page

This Sunday, June 29 at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Parking Lot when we run the Meadow to Blue Route. This course takes us to Raven Rocks and around the Fire Tower hill to return via Kimberly bridge and the FH trail. Those wanting to vary the distance can return via Orange for a six-mile loop and those looking for more elevation can take Blue up to the Fire Tower. Any way you run it, you’ll have a great time.

For those who want to run Saturday, June 28 at 8:00 a.m., there is a contingent of runners that are going to run the Mountain Lakes 15K (or the 10K option). Meet at the pool parking lot as before. The trail won’t be flagged but Mark Vincent will be there to make sure everyone makes it through. Just in case, though, you might want to bring a map.

And if you want to start your weekend off one day early, meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Trailside Museum on Friday, June 27 at 8:00 a.m. for a run down to Raven Rocks and back via the Meadow. I don’t have a map of this but something similar to this map but against the arrows and following FH to the Meadow.

If you’re up for a run on Friday, July 4, at 8:30 a.m., meet at the parking lot of Mianus River Gorge and run the out-and-back trail to the reservoir. This 5 mile course is a great way to start the long weekend.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

June 22, Mountain Lakes 15K

click for map page

This Sunday, June 22 at 8:00 a.m, meet at Mountain Lakes Park (201 Hawley Road, North Salem, NY) Pool Parking Lot (where you parked for the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack) when we run a new 15K course in honor of the Summer solstice. The course will be marked and includes some familiar trails within Mountain Lakes Park and some new ones in adjacent preserves. If you’re not up for the full distance, bypass the Hunt Lane loop, Hearst-Mead and Halmi Preserves for a more manageable 10K. We’ll drop water at the midpoint of the run and at the finish. See the map page here.

For those who want to run Saturday, June 21 at 8:00 a.m., I suggest meet at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow Lot and run the Meadow, Museum, Fire Tower, Michigan loop—six miles of awesome (but save something for the Mountain Lakes 15K the next day, okay).

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

This Sunday, June 15 at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Zofnass Family Preserve on Upper Shad Road in Pound Ridge (see Google Map) when we run this excellent preserve with a network of trails noted for its crags and rock outcrops. Meet at the main entrance and we’ll follow a perimeter loop making all right turns except for exiting the park (yeah, you’ll probably want to bring a map). We’ll make a 6-mile loop counter-clockwise around the preserve this time including the orange, western loop. See the map page here.

For those who want to run Saturday, June 14 at 8:00 a.m., I suggest meet at Mountain Lakes Park at the white trailhead to lookout point and run the Outer OS loop. If you’re going to run either the 15k or 10k variant with us next week, you might want to get familiar with those trails by taking the right fork on Blue and going over Bailey Mountain before following Blue/Yellow to Hunt Lane.

Upcoming:
Wednesday, June 18: Summer Solstice Run 14k, Minnewaska State Park, Gardiner NY
Sunday, June 22: Mountain Lakes 15k. An extended Sunday Run for the summer solstice. Details to come.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.
