On Sunday, December 4, at 8:00 a.m., meet at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Michigan Road lot and run some of the southern trails on the Michigan Red/Rock loop. We’ll start at Michigan Road and take some of the wider paths to the Rock Trail where the course narrows and the hills begin. We’ll go up the stairs to Spy Rock then up more to the overlook before returning to Michigan Road on a nice downhill finish. Lots of hills on this great run and some options to shorten or lengthen the run as well. Those looking to do some extra miles can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a 4 mile loop.

Hope to see you out there this Sunday.

November 27, Lewisboro Town Park

This Sunday, November 27, at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Lewisboro Town Park upper parking lot (see map) when we shed some pounds and run a perennial favorite—the Fat Ass Run. Seven miles of trail running is the perfect antidote to the tryptophan-laden butterball from Thanksgiving dinner and this year I’ve added an even longer 8.5 mile option. The fresh air will wake you up, you’ll feel reinvigorated, plus, as an added bonus, you’ll work up an appetite to help you finish those leftovers still cluttering up your fridge. For those who don’t want to do the longer distances, a three-mile course is also an option. Now there’s no excuse not to come out. Anyone interested in getting an early start can arrive by 7:00 a.m. and get a few miles in before the run. See map page ››

Join us on Friday, November 25, at 8:30 a.m. for the perfect post-Thanksgiving run at Mianus River Gorge in Bedford, NY. This 4.4 mile out-and-back course traverses the beautiful Mianus River Gorge located on the Bedford/Greenwich border. The course is primarily single-track overlooking the gorge. From the main entrance, start on the red trail and take all of the lefts even to the quarry, overlook, and falls to add a little more interest and distance. For a change of pace, this is a beautiful and often overlooked park. See the map here ››  |  Get directions in Google Maps ››

And if that isn’t enough, on Saturday, November 26, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow lot for a new course—Pound Ridge Perimeter loop. This offers runners a 12.5 mile course of mixed terrain on the the trails that border the park with an option of a climb over the fire tower for even more fun.

What are you planning on running?

This Sunday, November 6, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Zofnass Family Preserve in Pound Ridge (259 Upper Shad Road, see Google Map) when we run everyone’s favorite labyrinthian preserve with a network of trails noted for its crags and rock outcrops. Meet at the main entrance and follow a 6-mile perimeter loop counterclockwise making all right turns except for exiting the park, and excluding the orange, western loop. See the map page here. Those looking to start early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. which should give us enough time to run the Southern and Central Roundabout loops.

Zofnass to Mianus

Looking for a longer run on Sunday? Mianus River Gorge is 2.8 miles away on mostly dirt roads. Exit Zofnass at the northern loop onto S. Bedford Road and head west for up to a total of 16 miles of running bliss. See the map here ››

Night Run!!

Friday, November 4, 7:00, meet at the Michigan Road lean-to #5 at 7:00 p.m. for a 7:30 p.m. start. We’ll be running Rob’s Run, a 6.5 mile loop with several options of making it shorter if you want. Anyone who wants to join the fun but doesn’t want to run can tend the fire while we’re out on the trail—that would be very helpful. Bring a headlamp, a change of warm clothes, and some refreshments so you can, you know, rehydrate after the run. Plan to spend some time around the campfire after the run. And bring a few dollars to share the cost of the rental—final cost will be determined based on the number of people that show.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.
