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 13 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 ››

SATURDAY RUN

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. See the map here ››

NIGHT RUN!!

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 $5 to $10 to share the cost of the rental.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

And thanks to Peeter Muursepp, it’s never to early to think about running Bear Mountain in the spring! He contacted The North Face and they provided us with a discount code. Use LHARRIERS15 to receive 15% off of your entry fee at Bear Mountain. The races take place on May 13-14.

This Sunday, October 16, at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Lewisboro Town Park Upper Lot when we run a course that includes some of the newest trails in the Reservation—The Town Park to Covered Bridge Loop. We’ll all start out together and head toward the Meadow and up the FH trail but from there, you’ll have options for different distances. Three of the four options will take you down the new CB trail to the new covered bridge. If you run the 7.3 or 8.6 loop, when you are running through the meadow near Michigan Road, keep to your left and take the path into the woods on the new trail to the Mill Site. The 8.6 mile option takes you to a couple smaller trails that we haven’t been on in a while so pay attention to the turns. Anyone interested in getting an early start can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a short loop.

Next week we’ll be back at Muscoot for the Run the Farm race. And Save the date Friday, November 4 for a night run. We’ll meet at the Michigan Road lean-to #5 at 7:00 p.m. for a 7:30 p.m. start. Bring a headlamp, a change of warm clothes, and some refreshments so you can, you know, rehydrate. Plan to spend some time around the campfire after the run.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.
