September 25, Sarah Bishop Bushwhack

Sunday, September 25, 9:00 a.m.
This Sunday, meet at Mountain Lakes Park (201 Hawley Road, North Salem, New York 10560), when we race the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack. All that training and those course checks come down to this—a 10k trail race featuring a challenging course that includes the highest peak in Westchester—Bailey Mountain—and beautiful views of Lookout Point and Hemlock Lake. The weather this weekend should be beautiful and the conditions on Sunday, ideal. Registration closes at midnight on Thursday night but as long as the race isn’t sold out, we will have same-day registration. Race day registration will be $40 and we ask that you have exact change. Also aim to be in the park before 8:45. The road will be blocked at 9:00 for the start of the race so if you’re not there by then, well, you get the picture.

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

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

This Sunday, September 11, at 8:00 a.m, meet at Mountain Lakes Park in North Salem (201 Hawley Road) when we do a course check of the 2016 Sarah Bishop Bushwhack. This is the only course check this year so if you want to check out the course with the group, this is your only chance. Meet at the pool parking lot (gravel road opposite the Hemlock Lake Beach) where race day parking is and get ready to run this 10K-ish loop with a few twists and turns. Those that want to start early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a warm-up.

Saturday, September 10, 8:00 a.m. For those who want to run on Saturday, make a course check of the Pavement Ends course in preparation for the September 18 race. Meet at 10 Shore Drive, Ridgefield, CT at 7:45 for an 8:00 start and stick with the 4-mile course or take a longer, scenic route to Bennett’s Pond (see the course here).

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

This Sunday, July 10, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the trailhead to Lookout Point in Mountain Lakes Park (201 Hawley Road, North, Salem, NY) when we run the 6 mile(ish) perimeter loop. Start up the path to Lookout Point and follow the course over Bailey Mountain and the OS trail. Add an optional 1-mile loop at Hunt Lane and/or 2 miles for the Herst-Mead and Halmi Preserves for up to 9 fun miles. If you’re planning on running the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack this fall, this is a great chance to check out some of the trails. Anyone interested in getting an early start can arrive at 7:00 a.m. to get a few miles in and those looking to run longer can add some miles after. See the map here ››

On Saturday, July 9, at 8:00 a.m., it looks like there’s a good chance of rain so I suggest meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow lot and run Eleanor’s Escape. This is a great course that includes a mix of wide trails, single track, long level paths, and technical uphills. Plenty of options for distance too but bring your own maps, I’m not going to make this one.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.
