This Sunday, December 18, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Trailside Museum when we run the Museum to Blue Route. This 7-mile course starts down the Orange trail and winds its way to Raven Rocks and back by the Blue trail. While it’s 7 miles, the course avoids the steepest uphills (you’re welcome). Options are listed for 6.5 mile and 5.75 mile options as well. Anyone interested in starting early can arrive by 7:00 a.m. for a shorter loop. I see that we’re expecting some snow on Saturday so this may be our first true Winter run of the season. I’ve posted some winter running tips for those who find them helpful.

And anyone looking for a run on Saturday, December 17, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Trailside Museum and run the Trailside to Tower loop. I put the hills on Saturday, just so you know, but bring your own maps.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

On Sunday, December 11, at 8:00 a.m., meet at Mountain Lakes Park at the trailhead to Lookout Point when we run a new course that includes the adjacent Hearst-Mead and Halmi Preserves. These two parks contain a pair of loops and lot of hills in a short distance. Normally, these are on the runs as added miles but I’ve put these on early to give everyone a chance to see these preserves. More miles can be added by adding the OS loop to Yellow after. Anyone interested in starting early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for more fun. See the map here ››

On Saturday, December 10, at 8:00 a.m., meet at Reis Park in Somers when we run the Reis Park/Angle Fly 6 Mile Loop. This set of trails is well-marked and contains a variety of terrain that you’re going to love. To get to Reis Park, take Route 35 to Route 100 North. At approximately 1/4 mile, turn left onto Route 139. and follow for 2 miles to Reis Park on your right at Primrose Drive. IMPORTANT NOTE: if the entrance is closed (or if no one is there), continue North on 139 to Sunderland Lane and park at Van Tassel park. If Reis park is open, then park near the tennis courts—the trail head is behind the western edge of the courts. See the map page ››

Hope to see you out there this weekend but dress warmly—it’s getting cold out there.

On Sunday, December 4, at 8:00 a.m., meet at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Michigan Road lot and run some of the southern trails on the Michigan Red/Rock loop. We’ll start at Michigan Road and take some of the wider paths to the Rock Trail where the course narrows and the hills begin. We’ll go up the stairs to Spy Rock then up more to the overlook before returning to Michigan Road on a nice downhill finish. Lots of hills on this great run and some options to shorten or lengthen the run as well. Those looking to do some extra miles can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a 4 mile loop.

Hope to see you out there this Sunday.
