May 22, A Mild Sprain

This Sunday, May 22, at 9:45 a.m., meet at Sprain Ridge Park, Yonkers, for the fifth annual A Mild Sprain—the second in the Trail Mix Series of races. Race director David Vogel always makes sure this is a fun and challenging 4.25 mile race so plan on attending. Check in starts at 8:30 so come early and hang out before the race. Race-day registration is available.

Also available and starting at 8:00 a.m. is The Running Goddess 5k at Lasdon Park. This is a multi-terrain race through the park and proceeds support women and girls in their pursuit of health and education.

Now, I know what you’re thinking…. Yes, it is possible to run both races—think of this as the cross county challenge (because to do it, you need to cross the county). Run The Running Goddess 5k, jump in your car and (obeying all local speed limits) make your way to Sprain Ridge Park. The travel time is 35 minutes so you should have just enough time. Running Goddess race director Bettina Sementilli will make sure the race starts on time so you should be able to run A Mild Sprain.

Saturday, May 21, 8:00 a.m.
Looking for a Saturday run? I suggest checking out Zofnass Preserve in Pound Ridge. We’ll be there in a couple of weeks so this is your chance to check it out first.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

On Saturday, May 14, at 8:00 a.m., anyone looking for a Saturday run can meet at Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Parking Lot at and run the Meadow to Blue route. I suggest starting up the FH trail and running in a counterclockwise direction so you get the biggest hills out of the way early. Bring your own maps to this one. See the map page here ››

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

We’ll meet at the Blue Mountain Lodge and make a counterclockwise loop around the park for a total of 7.7 miles.
