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.

Big group of 30 runners at Mountain Lakes Park on a beautiful Sunday. Hope to see you next week at the Looper Bowl.


September 18, Where the Pavement Ends

Sunday, September 18, 8:00 a.m. Where the Pavement Ends is a fun and challenging trail race: fun for the everyday runner who can experience the beauty of these beautiful trails and challenging for the competitive trail runner who can match up against the best racers in the northeast. It’s 4-plus miles of sometimes narrow and hilly terrain. All of the muscles that never get any work from all of that road running will definitely be used on this course.  It is a great mix of fire road, singletrack, flats, hills, and one fast downhill section right towards the end. Meet at the Ridgebury School, South Shore Drive, Ridgefield, CT and be ready to run at 8:00 a.m. This is another in the Trail Mix Series of races. Sign up here ››

Next week we’ll be at Mountain Lakes Park for the Fourth Annual Sarah Bishop Bushwhack.

And don’t forget to register for the upcoming fall races:
Sarah Bishop Bushwhack, Sunday, September 25
Run The Farm, Sunday, October 23
Raven Rocks Run, Sunday, November 13

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

April 24, Leatherman’s Loop

See you all at the Leatherman’s Loop. For those who like to get organized ahead of time, we will have early bib & shirt pickup at the entrance to Ward Pound Ridge Reservation on Saturday April 23rd from 10am-12pm. We will be in the WPA Gallery across from the entrance booth. Come on over — it will make race day a bit less hectic for everyone!

And don’t forget to ARRIVE EARLY! Please plan to arrive at the park before 8:15 a.m. — or even earlier if you can swing it.

The Ioop site has lots of good information so head over to leathermansloop.org for complete details.

I look forward to seeing you at the race.

And thanks for coming out this past Sunday for a great run. With the warmer temps, it’s great to have some time to hang out after the run and talk. But also with the warm temps, check yourself over for ticks. They’re out.
