This Sunday, October 30, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow Lot when we run a course check of the Raven Rocks Run. This will be our only course check so if you’re planning on running the November 15 race, this will be your chance to check out the course which includes the new CB trail. Anyone interested in getting an early start can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a few extra miles but bring a headlamp—the sun isn’t up that early. See the map here ››
Anyone interested in a Saturday run, I can’t think of a more appropriate place for a pre-Halloween run than at Devil’s Den in Connecticut. Saturday, October 31, at 8:00 a.m., meet at Devil’s Den parking lot, 3 Pent Road, Weston, CT, and run a 6.4 mile perimeter loop including the Ambler Gorge loop, but bring your own maps because no one wants to get lost in Devil’s Den on Halloween.

Friday, November 4, at 7:00 p.m., dig out your headlamps for a night run. Meet at the Michigan Road lean-to #5 at 7:00 p.m. for a 7:30 p.m. start. The course (to be determined) will be around 6 miles and we’ll run rain or shine. Anyone who wants to join the fun but doesn’t want to run can tend the fire while we’re out on the trail. Bring a headlamp, a change of warm clothes, and some refreshments so you can, you know, rehydrate after the run. Plan to spend some time around the campfire afterwards and bring a few dollars to share the cost of the rental—final cost will be determined based on the number of people that show.
Hope to see you out there this weekend.
