This Sunday, August 30, at 8:00 a.m, meet at Mountain Lakes Park in North Salem (201 Hawley Road) when we do a course check of the 2015 Sarah Bishop Bushwhack. This is the first of two course checks this year so if you want to check out the course with the group, this is a great chance. Meet at the pool parking lot where race day parking is and get ready to run this 10K-ish loop with a few twists and turns. Those that want to start early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a warm-up. See the map ››

Saturday, August 29, 8:00 a.m. For those who want to run on Saturday, I suggest revisiting last Sunday’s run at Bennett’s Pond (580 Bennett’s Farm Road, Ridgefield, CT). Follow the full course or explore some of the trails we didn’t follow including some of the trails from The Pavement Ends race (see the course here).

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

And don’t forget to register for the upcoming fall races:

This Sunday, August 23, at 8:00 a.m., meet at a new location on the Ridgefield/Danbury border—Bennett’s Pond—when we run an epic 10.5 mile loop designed by Keith Realander. Meet at the parking lot on Bennett’s Farm Road (see Google map) prepared to run this clockwise loop which includes some of the same trails in the Pavement Ends race. Those looking for a 6.5-mile run can eliminate the Hemlock Hills loop. An out-and-back to the end of of the White trail will get you a scenic 5 mile run so there are options for making the run shorter. Anyone interested in getting an early start can arrive at 7:00 a.m. See the Sunday map here ››

Anyone looking to run on Saturday, August 22, at 8:00 a.m. can meet at Graham Hills Park in Mount Pleasant, NY (see Google map), for a 5-ish mile loop on trails that wind through many diverse habitats in this 431-acre park. Trails are mostly single track and are shared with mountain bikers. Bring your own map and have fun. See the Saturday map here ››

August 16, Kimberly Bridge

This Sunday, August 16, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Kimberly Bridge Lot to run a new course—a double-loop on DH, Brown and Blue. This 8.3 mile course will take us first on the northern trails then as far south as Raven Rocks. In between, we’ll return to Kimberly Bridge and hopefully pick up a few additional runners here to celebrate George Grenier’s 50th birthday. There are options to shorten the run as well if you’re not up for the full 8-mile loop. After the run, stick around for a celebratory picnic. Anyone interested in getting an early start can arrive at 7:00 a.m. See the Sunday map here ››

Anyone looking to run on Saturday, August 15, at 8:00 a.m. can meet at The Lucius Pond Ordway/Devil’s Den Preserve, the largest tract of protected land in Fairfield County. Its patchwork of woodlands, wetlands and rock ledges and a series of north-south ridges and valleys woven with streams and swamps make the Devil’s Den ideal for running. 3 Pent Rd, Weston, CT.  See the Saturday map here ››
