On Sunday, April 30, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Michigan Road lot when we follow the Michigan to Kimberly Bridge course. Michigan Road is our traditional starting point for runs in the southern portion of the reservation but this time we’ll run North from the lot to the Meadow, follow some of the Leatherman’s Loop course trail to Kimberly Bridge, then “up” the blue trail and return by way of yellow. There are some hills on this course particularly around mile 4. You have been warned. Anyone interested in getting a few more miles in can arrive at 5:00 a.m., 6:00 a.m. or 7:00 a.m. for an early start. Trail Map here ››
On Saturday, April 29, join us for one last training run at Bear Mountain before the North Face Endurance Challenge in two weeks. Options include distances of 50k, 26 miles, 22 miles, and the 13 mile half marathon course. There are PDF, GPX, and KML files of the courses available here and you should bring a map just in case. Three options to meet that day: 6:00 a.m. Woodsbridge Lot, Katonah; 6:40 a.m., Anthony Wayne; 7:00 a.m. Ice Rink Lot. Complete details in the calendar.
Also on Saturday, April 29, at 6:00 a.m., join Peeter Muursepp at the Lewisboro Town Park for around 12 miles. I’ll leave the details of the course to him though.
On Friday, May 5, at 7:30 p.m., join us at lean-to 5 (Michigan Road) for a night run. Course to be determined but will be around 6 miles. Bring a headlamp and some of your favorite “recovery” food and drink and we’ll hang out by the fire afterwards.
Great job last week at the Leatherman’s Loop. Nice to see so many of you take the podium and win a pie and even nicer still to just hang out after the race. Next race in the Trail Mix Series is A Mild Sprain on Sunday, May 21. Hope to see you there.
