This Sunday, August 14, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Nature Conservancy Butler Sanctuary on Chestnut Ridge Road in Mt. Kisco (see in Google maps) when we run a combination of trails covering most of the park. Since Butler is a relatively small preserve, we’ll be following a double loop course to get close to 5 miles. Don’t worry, you’ll still get a workout since the terrain has a lot of ups and downs. Plus anyone interested in a longer run can head over to Westmoreland afterwards for a few more miles. Meet in the Butler parking lot. See the map here ››
Looking to start early? Arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a pre-run loop.

Saturday, August 13, 8:00 a.m.
For anyone looking for a Saturday run, meet in the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation at the Michigan Road parking lot and run the Michigan to Kimberly 6 mile loop.

Don’t forget to register for the Trail Mix Races this fall including the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack on September 25. And if you’re looking for something a little different this weekend, there’s the Taconic Road Runners/Peekskill Brewery Mile on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. Limited to 100 entrants only.

With 1300 feet of elevation gain, I’m glad everyone liked the hills last week.

This Sunday, August 7, at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Michigan Road Parking lot to run a new course—The FH to Overlook Loop. Start at the Michigan Road lot and head up Fox Hill then turn south. I’ve put a number of twists and turns on lesser-used trails so keep a sharp eye out and a map handy. See the map ›› Anyone interested in getting some additional miles in can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a pre-run loop.

How about brunch? It’s been a while and a few races since we had any sort of get together so let’s plan to hang out after the run on Sunday, catch up, swap stories, and take over the picnic tables near the Michigan Road lot. Bring something to eat or drink and spend some time just hanging out.

Join us on Saturday, August 6, at 6:00 a.m., for a special run at Blue Mountain in Peekskill cooked up by Kevin Rader. The run will start at 6:00 a.m. and consist of three loops of a 7-mile course following much of the perimeter in a counterclockwise direction starting at the Depew Court Lot. Since each loop will take approximately 1:45 to complete, runners can join in at 7:45 and 9:30. And of course there’s always the Peekskill Coffee House afterwards for some recovery food. Final course map is now ready ››. Hope to see you out there.

This Saturday, July 30, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Nature Conservancy Butler Sanctuary on Chestnut Ridge Road in Mt. Kisco (see in Google maps) when we run a new combination of trails covering most of the park. Since Butler is a relatively small preserve, we’ll be running most of the trails there to get close to 5 miles. Don’t worry, you’ll still get a workout since the terrain has a lot of ups and downs. Meet in the Butler parking lot and run Red to Orange out, then Red back toward the start to Yellow. Climb the Yellow hill and take Blue all the way to the end and follow Red to Orange and Yellow for the perimeter loop. Oh yeah, you might want to bring a map. See the map here ››

Hope to see you out there this weekend.
