trail run

March 8, TBD

We’re looking to celebrate 5 Years of Sunday Runs this weekend. Five years ago Rob started the runs at the Town Park with a handful of local runners preparing for the Leatherman’s Loop. We’d like to recreate that first run (and add some miles as an option) to commemorate our humble beginnings. I hope some of the runners from that first day will show up.

But the weather doesn’t look like it’s cooperating. Between the snow, the rain, and the snow, it’s hard to say what trail conditions will be like this Sunday so I won’t plan to post the run until I’ve had a chance to get on the trails on Friday. Look for an update then and follow any other updates at community.sundayruns.org.

Sunday, March 1, 8:00 a.m.
This Sunday, meet at Ward Pound Ridge Michigan Road lot when we run some of the large southern trails—Red, Yellow, and Green. This 5.5 mile loop follows the trails that have been well compacted by skiers, snow shoers, and runners so be prepared for a fast run. The temps might be a little cold at the start but it will warm up a bit as the sun rises. Those looking for an early start can arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a shortened loop.

And make sure you come out next week when we celebrate 5 Years of Sunday Runs. Five years ago Rob started the runs at the Town Park with a handful of local runners preparing for the Leatherman’s Loop. We’ll recreate that run (and add some miles as an option) to commemorate our humble beginnings. I hope some of the runners from that first day will show up.

Hope to see you this weekend.

Sunday, February 22, 8:00 a.m.
This Sunday, meet at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Kimberly Bridge lot when we run a new course—Blue and Brown. The 4-mile Blue trail has been well packed and is a great run combining the initial long gentle trail and the steep up and down of the Fire Tower. Once back at the parking lot, head off to the DH trail and return via brown to add an additional 2.7 miles. Those who want to do a little more can tack on an extra mile by following DH through the pine forest and returning via Br. I’ve run all of these trails this week and for the most part they’re well compacted and stable. That said, we are expecting some snow on Saturday night and the temperatures on Sunday should be in the 30s so be prepared for anything.

Those looking to start early can arrive at 7:00 a.m. and run the DH/Br loop but bring a map—I can’t guarantee I’ll be there early this week.

Hope to see you this weekend.
