This Sunday, July 10, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the trailhead to Lookout Point in Mountain Lakes Park (201 Hawley Road, North, Salem, NY) when we run the 6 mile(ish) perimeter loop. Start up the path to Lookout Point and follow the course over Bailey Mountain and the OS trail. Add an optional 1-mile loop at Hunt Lane and/or 2 miles for the Herst-Mead and Halmi Preserves for up to 9 fun miles. If you’re planning on running the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack this fall, this is a great chance to check out some of the trails. Anyone interested in getting an early start can arrive at 7:00 a.m. to get a few miles in and those looking to run longer can add some miles after. See the map here ››

On Saturday, July 9, at 8:00 a.m., it looks like there’s a good chance of rain so I suggest meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow lot and run Eleanor’s Escape. This is a great course that includes a mix of wide trails, single track, long level paths, and technical uphills. Plenty of options for distance too but bring your own maps, I’m not going to make this one.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

 On Sunday, July 3, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Teatown Lake Reservation, , and run an out-and-back course on the Teatown Kitchawan Trail. The course consists of relatively easy trails, a dirt road, and a small stretch of pavement. The full course is 13.2 miles round trip but you can turn back at any point for a shorter run. We’ll start at the Teatown Lake Reservation which has a nature center open at 9:00 a.m. After the run, you can bring something drink or something to eat and hang out for a while. If you’d like to get a few miles in early, arrive at 7:00 a.m. See map ››

On Saturday, July 2, at 7:00 a.m., anyone interested in running the Escarpment Trail, meet at the Katonah Woods Bridge Lot and we’ll car pool to the start. I’m sorting out final plans so please see this page with instructions and this list of interested runners and email me if you aren’t on the list and plan to run.

On Monday, July 4, at 8:00 a.m., we’re going to meet at the Leon Levy Preserve in South Salem. The parking lot entrance is on Route 123 about half a mile south of Route 35. At 383 acres, this preserve is relatively small so bring a map and explore what the preserve has to offer. I have a 5.5 mile course that I usually follow but you’re free to make up your own.

There you have it. Three days, three locations, three runs. Hope to see you out there this weekend.
