This Sunday, November 20, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the gazebo at Leonard Park in Mt. Kisco (see map) when we tackle some different trails. We’ll start in Leonard park, go through Marsh Sanctuary, Merestead, Butler, and Westmoreland Sanctuary. Runners will have a choice of various distances. Anyone interested in starting early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a few extra miles.

5 Mile Run: Take the course through Marsh and Merestead to the Butler loop.
7.7 Mile Run: Follow the Butler loop which adds 2.7 to the run for a total of 7.7 miles.
10 Mile Run: Cross the road to Westmoreland Sanctuary for a short loop.
13.1 Mile Run (approx): Anyone interested in going farther can try the Leonard Park to Westmoreland Greenbelt Half Marathon which adds the perimeter course of Westmoreland.

There you have it— a host of great options through five different parks. Hope to see you out there.

This Sunday, November 13, at 9:00 a.m., be ready for the 2nd Annual Raven Rocks Run—a 10(ish) kilometer race of challenging trails in Ward Pound Ridge Reservation full of great views, rocky climbs, ridgeline paths, meadows, ravines and the site of the former fire tower. Arrive at the meadow parking lot by 8:15 a.m. and visit RavenRocksRun.org for answers to any last-minute questions. Anyone interested in pre-running the course with me can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a nice and easy course check. See the map here ››

Next week we’ll be off the reservation at Leonard Park in Mt. Kisco for the multi-park run of up to 13 miles. I need to make sure the path is clear so this is subject to change at the last minute if necessary.

Beautiful fall run at Zofnass today. It was also a nice day at Mianus River Gorge, too. Hope to see you all next Sunday at the Raven Rocks Run.

This Sunday, November 6, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Zofnass Family Preserve in Pound Ridge (259 Upper Shad Road, see Google Map) when we run everyone’s favorite labyrinthian preserve with a network of trails noted for its crags and rock outcrops. Meet at the main entrance and follow a 6-mile perimeter loop counterclockwise making all right turns except for exiting the park, and excluding the orange, western loop. See the map page here. Those looking to start early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. which should give us enough time to run the Southern and Central Roundabout loops.

Zofnass to Mianus

Looking for a longer run on Sunday? Mianus River Gorge is 2.8 miles away on mostly dirt roads. Exit Zofnass at the northern loop onto S. Bedford Road and head west for up to a total of 16 miles of running bliss. See the map here ››

Night Run!!

Friday, November 4, 7:00, meet at the Michigan Road lean-to #5 at 7:00 p.m. for a 7:30 p.m. start. We’ll be running Rob’s Run, a 6.5 mile loop with several options of making it shorter if you want. Anyone who wants to join the fun but doesn’t want to run can tend the fire while we’re out on the trail—that would be very helpful. 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 after the run. 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.
