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.

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.

March 5, Michigan Road

On Sunday, March 5, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Michigan Road lot for a special run on a classic course designed by Tony—The Dancing Rock Run. This is a looped course of 7.5-miles with your choice of one or two loops. There are few who remember this race but, fortunately for us, Tony does and he is sharing the course with us on Sunday so you won’t want to miss this run. Early birds can start at 7:00 a.m.; insomniacs at 6:00 a.m.

Looking for mileage? Come to the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Lot on Saturday, March 4, at 6:00 a.m. We’ll start with a warm-up loop and then, at 7:00 a.m., we’ll begin a 12-mile perimeter loop of the Rez. Join us for the full thing or turn back at any point for a shorter run. But dress warmly, temps will be in the teens.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

Great to see such a big group at Bennett’s Pond on a very blustery day.

This Sunday, February 26, at 8:00 a.m., meet at Bennett’s Pond on the Ridgefield/Danbury border when we run an epic 10.5 mile loop designed by Keith Realander. Meet at the parking lot on Bennett’s Farm Road (see Google map) prepared to run this clockwise loop which includes some of the same trails in the Pavement Ends race. Those looking for a 6.5-mile run can eliminate the Hemlock Hills loop. An out-and-back to the end of of the White trail will get you a scenic 5 mile run so there are options for making the run shorter. Anyone interested in getting an early start can arrive at 7:00 a.m.
