Leatherman’s Loop

April 5, Zofnass Family Preserve

This Sunday, April 5, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Zofnass Family Preserve on Upper Shad Road in Pound Ridge (see Google Map) when we run everyone’s favorite labyrinthian preserve with a network of trails noted for its crags and rock outcrops. Meet at the main entrance and follow a perimeter loop making all right turns except for exiting the park (you may want to bring a map since I won’t be there this weekend). Make a 6-mile loop counter-clockwise around the preserve excluding the orange, western loop (just ask Mario why). See the map page here. Those looking to start early can arrive at 7:00 which should give you enough time to run the Southern and Central Roundabout loops.

Next week we’ll be back at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow parking lot when we run the official course check for the Leatherman’s Loop. If you’re planning on running the race, you won’t want to miss this.

Just three weeks before the Leatherman’s Loop. Hope to see you out there this weekend.

March 8, Reservoir Road, Katonah

With our usual trails in such poor shape, we’re going to switch things up this week with the option of some distance work on a more forgiving surface. Our 5th-year commemorative run will have to wait a week (at least). On Sunday, March 8, at 8:00 a.m., meet on Reservoir Road in Katonah (behind the Katonah Art Museum, see Google map) and run 4.5, 6.5, or 9.0 mile out-and-back course to Maple Ave, Jay Street and Upper Hook Road. Your choice of distances but the turnaround at 121 yields a total of 9 miles. With some warmer temps moving in, hopefully we’ll be back on the trails again soon.

No early run this Sunday but remember to set your clocks ahead (so it will feel like an early run).

Hope to see you on Sunday. Seven weeks to the Leatherman’s Loop.

February 8, Michigan Road Lot


click for map page

This Sunday,  February 8, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Michigan Road lot when we run some of the best trails that I can find—the Red and Green Loop. Head south on the Red/Green trail making a loop that includes the Red trail, the Green trail and a few other trails as well. While the map shows a loop toward the Overlook, I suggest staying on the Red Green path which is much more compacted and easier to run. You can return vial Yellow or Green, both seem to be runable. Check out community.sundayruns.org for trail updates.

Those looking to get a few extra miles in can meet early for a 7:00 a.m. start.

Also, Golden Harper from Altra will be at Ridgefield Running Company on Tuesday evening at 7:00 to talk about running injury-free for those interested.

I hope to see you out there this weekend.
