This Sunday, January 8, 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. Anyone interested in getting a few more miles in can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for an early start. Trail Map here ››

On Saturday, January 7, at 7:00 a.m., meet at Ward Pound Ridge Michigan Road Lot for a special 15-mile(ish) perimeter loop. The course will be determined on the fly but will look something like this course (only starting at Michigan Road instead). If you’re not up for the full 15 miles, start with the group at 7:00 and return to Michigan Road from Kimberly Bridge for a run of about 7 miles.

On Saturday, December 31, at 8:00 a.m., meet at Depew Court in Peekskill when we run the Blue Mountain Reservation Depew Court Perimeter LoopThis run is a little farther away but it will be worth the trip. Meet at the Depew Court Pool parking lot (1 Depew Ct. at Bay St, Peekskill, NY 10566) at 8:00 a.m. but leave a little extra travel time. There are options for making this shorter and once we’re back together, we’ll head over to Peekskill Coffee House at 101 South Division Street for a cup of joe. The perfect way to end this year.

On Sunday, January 1, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Lot when we run a new course—the Meadow to Green Loop. This course heads to the Trailside Museum before circling around to Michigan Road. From there, take the Green trail, which is a sizeable hill, to some of the smaller, lesser-used trails in the Southern portion of the park. On your way back, when the fields are mowed, you can take the Schoolhouse Road spur trail and cross Michigan Road, run through the field where you’ll catch the CB trail. Options include an additional half mile down LL and up to the Overlook or you can make the run shorter by eliminating the Green trail. Anyone looking to start early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a few extra miles.

On Monday, January 2, at 8:00 a.m., meet at Graham Hills Park in Pleasantville (see Google Map), when we run a 7-mile perimeter loop. I’ve been told there is only one hill in the park so I’m looking forward to finding it. We’ll follow mostly a perimeter course but then take a number of switchbacks through the updraft, whatever that is. Looks like fun.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

Last week’s runners at the Trailside Museum didn’t let a little rain and snow stop them. And a big happy birthday to runner Joe Cloidt who advances an age group this week.
