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.

February 1, Looper Bowl Sunday

This Sunday, February 1 at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Parking Lot and rise to the challenge of the Fourth Annual Looper Bowl. Follow the loop course and live the excitement of the Leatherman’s Loop but with snow—lots and lots of snow. Detours are available to avoid all the water crossings and even the mud flats if necessary. I’ve been through most of the course and while it’s slow, it is passable. For those wanting to do some distance work, a group will be headed out after the run for up to a total of 20 miles (on a combination of roads and trails).

August 31, Mountain Lakes Park

Click for map page

This Sunday, August 31 at 8:00 a.m., meet at Mountain Lakes Park, at the pool parking lot near Hemlock Lake, when we run the Mountain Lakes 10K. The course is a good preview of the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack but finishes differently. If you want to run the full 15k, follow the course as shown on the map. If you would like to keep it to a 10K, leave off the Hunt Lane loop and the Hearst-Mead and Halmi preserves. Feel free to take the beautiful Spruce Lake trail and the red trail back to the parking lot to complete your run. The course will not be flagged in advance so bring a map if you’re unfamiliar with the park.

Saturday, August 30 at 8:00 a.m.
If you’re looking for a run this Saturday, I suggest meeting at Westmoreland Sanctuary and running the perimeter loop. If you’re up for more, cross the street and add some additional miles in Butler. Two great preserves to start your long weekend.

And don’t forget to register for the new Trail Mix Series—four great events starting September 21. Hope to see you this weekend.
