This Sunday, February 19, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation when we run a classic course—The Red/Rock Loop.  The snow on the southern trails is well compacted and relatively stable so the running there is as good as it gets this time of year. I haven’t been on the Rock Trail but the Red/Green and Red trails are fine. You might want to hold off and save the Rock Trail portion for another, warmer day. Your call. Early birds can start at 7:00 a.m. Insomniacs at 6:00 a.m. but bring headlamps. It’s still dark then.

On Saturday, February 18, the NJ Trail Series is having their annual Febapple race in Maplewood, NJ, with distances from 50M to 10M. But if you’d like to stay closer to home, I suggest meeting at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow Lot at 8:00 a.m. and check out any of the open trails. The weather should be beautiful.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

Great job everyone who came out for the Raven Lunatic on Sunday. Awesome run all. And kudos to the 8 runners that showed up for the Blueathlon on Saturday. It’s because of your hard work up and down blue that we were all able to enjoy that section of today’s course.

This Sunday, February 12, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow Lot when we run the RAVEN LUNATIC—all of the fun of the Raven Rocks Run but with snow and no trail markers! If you want to get an early start, arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a few extra miles. Those crazy enough can bring headlamps and start at 6:00 a.m. See the map page ››

Like hills? Need a break from all those flat trails? This is the run for you. On Saturday, February 11, at 7:00 a.m., meet at Ward Pound Ridge Kimberly Bridge lot for a special Blueathlon and run as many hill repeats up blue as time (and legs) permit. The course is .6 miles each way with an elevation gain of just over 400 feet—an average 13% grade. We’ll be starting at 7:00 a.m. (even in the snow) but show up when you can and run as many repeats as you want—it will be, you know, “fun!”

We’ll be at Bennett’s Pond next weekend. Hope to see you out there this weekend.

Thanks to everyone for coming out this past Sunday to the Looper Bowl, particularly the hardy folks that braved the water crossings. Nicely done.

February 5, Looper Bowl Sunday

This Sunday, February 5, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Parking Lot and rise to the challenge of the Sixth Annual Looper Bowl. Follow the loop course and live the excitement of the Leatherman’s Loop, but colder. Temps will be in the 20s but the water crossings are not iced over for those who dare. But detours are available to avoid both water crossings if you’d prefer to keep your feet…um…dry. But  be prepared to get dirty. If you want to get an early start, arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a few extra miles. If you’re not afraid of the dark, bring a headlamp and start at 6:00 a.m.

Next week we’ll be over at Bennett’s Pond in Ridgefield. Hope to see you out there this weekend.
