This Sunday, July 5, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Michigan Road lot and run the Rock Trail 6.5 mile loop. This course starts out easy enough with the Red/Yellow trail while you make your way to Raven Rocks. From there, proceed on the Rock Trail (RT) past Castle Rock, the aptly-named Stairs, Spy Rock, Bear Rock, Dancing Rock, and lots and lots of other rocks along the way. Lots of elevation changes on this course so you’re going to have a great run. See the map ››

Those looking to start early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. which should give you enough time to run to the Meadow, through the field to Schoolhouse Road, and return to Michigan Road in time for the 8:00 start. But bring a map, I don’t think I’ll make the early run this week.

And anyone looking to run Saturday, July 4, at 8:00 a.m. can meet at Westmoreland Sanctuary and run the 5.25 mile perimeter loop. If you want a longer run, cross the street to Butler and run some of the trails there.

And if you REALLY want to start your weekend off early, join us on Friday, July 3, at 8:00 a.m. at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow Lot and run the Meadow to Overlook 6.3 mile loop. This is a perennial favorite to start the weekend.

Hope to see you out here this weekend.

Don't forget to wear a bib!

Don’t forget to wear a bib!

This Sunday, June 28, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Parking lot to run the Leatherman’s Loop course in our first ever Summer Loopstice. A couple of our runners registered for the Loop but were unable to run at the time so they’re going to be running with their bibs. To make them feel at home, I suggest that everyone grab a bib—from the Loop, from another race, or from something else—and come out and run. Those wanting to stay dry can skip the water crossings but not the Mud Flats so bring a change of shoes. See the map ››

Those looking to start early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. which should give us enough time to run the a loop to Michagan Road and return via Schoolhouse Road.

And anyone looking to run Saturday, June 27, at 8:00 a.m. can run at Rockefeller State Park in Pleasantville, NY. Meet at the Sleepy Hollow High School (210 N. Broadway, Tarrytown, NY) at 8:00 a.m. and be ready to run some of the least technical trails around. I don’t have a course set for this but you can download a map here and plan to run until 9:30 before returning to the cars. Getting coffee might be a good idea afterwards as well.

And if you REALLY want to start your weekend off early, join us on Friday, June 26, at 3:45 p.m. at Butler Sanctuary.

Hope to see you out here this weekend.

rainorshineThis Sunday, June 21, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Parking lot to run a truly epic run—Eleanor’s Escape. Start at the Meadow and follow FH and BR to Kimberly Bridge then take Blue around the mountain to Raven Rocks and the Southwestern trails in the park. The full loop is 8.4 miles but you have several options to make the run shorter. Since this is Father’s day, let’s see if we can get a lot of the dads on the trail this Sunday. See the map ››
