This Sunday, March 12, at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Trailside Museum when we run the Trailside, CB, to Blue route. This 7-mile course starts with a bit of an uphill (that’s being kind) but once you head down the CB trail within the first mile, you can catch your breath and enjoy yourself. There might be another hill or two along the way but nothing to worry about. The course follows a new trail that has been marked with temporary flags starting in the woods behind the Michigan Road residence and ending at the Old Mill. By the time you reach the blue trail, you’ll remember what makes that one of our favorites in the park. If you’re not feeling the love of the full distance, you can cut a couple miles from the run. See the map here ››

If you’re looking for an early start, arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a pre-run loop. Early birds can start at 6:00 a.m. but bring a headlamp and set your clock ahead.

On Saturday, March 11, 5:00 a.m., come out to the Michigan Road Lot to run a 5-mile loop course on the Red trail. Run as many as you’d like up to six for a distance of 50K. Keep a drop bag in your car, bring hot coffee, pancakes, whatever you need. If you don’t want to start at 5:00, since each loop will take about an hour (the red course is one of the faster trails), start at 6:00, 7:00 or 8:00 instead. If you’re training for the North Face Endurance Challenge, this is a great opportunity to get some miles in.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

Great to see so many out on this bone-chilling morning for the Dancing Rocks Run. Yeah, I know, if it seems like it was a little hilly, that’s only because you went up the major climbs in the park so there’s that.

This Sunday, January 15, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Nature Conservancy Butler Sanctuary on Chestnut Ridge Road in Mt. Kisco (see in Google maps) when we run a combination of trails covering most of the park. Since Butler is a relatively small preserve, we’ll be following a double loop course to get close to 5 miles. Don’t worry, you’ll still get a workout since the terrain has a lot of ups and downs. Plus anyone interested in a longer run can head over to Westmoreland afterwards for a few more miles. Meet in the Butler parking lot. See the map here ›› Looking to start early? Arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a pre-run loop.

This Monday, January 16, at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Lewisboro Town Park upper parking lot (see map) when we run a relatively new course—Town Park to Green. This course involves the new Mill Site trail, returns via a new Town Park trail, and offers a variety of distances. Looks like fun, right? Those looking to start early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a few extra miles or even 6:00 a.m. and bring a headlamp.

Hope to see you out there this Sunday.

Lots of snow made last week’s run from Michigan Road a particularly beautiful one for this group.

This Sunday, November 13, at 9:00 a.m., be ready for the 2nd Annual Raven Rocks Run—a 10(ish) kilometer race of challenging trails in Ward Pound Ridge Reservation full of great views, rocky climbs, ridgeline paths, meadows, ravines and the site of the former fire tower. Arrive at the meadow parking lot by 8:15 a.m. and visit RavenRocksRun.org for answers to any last-minute questions. Anyone interested in pre-running the course with me can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a nice and easy course check. See the map here ››

Next week we’ll be off the reservation at Leonard Park in Mt. Kisco for the multi-park run of up to 13 miles. I need to make sure the path is clear so this is subject to change at the last minute if necessary.

Beautiful fall run at Zofnass today. It was also a nice day at Mianus River Gorge, too. Hope to see you all next Sunday at the Raven Rocks Run.
