This Sunday,  February 8, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Michigan Road lot when we run some of the best trails that I can find—the Red and Green Loop. Head south on the Red/Green trail making a loop that includes the Red trail, the Green trail and a few other trails as well. While the map shows a loop toward the Overlook, I suggest staying on the Red Green path which is much more compacted and easier to run. You can return vial Yellow or Green, both seem to be runable. Check out community.sundayruns.org for trail updates.

Those looking to get a few extra miles in can meet early for a 7:00 a.m. start.

Also, Golden Harper from Altra will be at Ridgefield Running Company on Tuesday evening at 7:00 to talk about running injury-free for those interested.

I hope to see you out there this weekend.

February 1, Looper Bowl Sunday

This Sunday, February 1 at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Parking Lot and rise to the challenge of the Fourth Annual Looper Bowl. Follow the loop course and live the excitement of the Leatherman’s Loop but with snow—lots and lots of snow. Detours are available to avoid all the water crossings and even the mud flats if necessary. I’ve been through most of the course and while it’s slow, it is passable. For those wanting to do some distance work, a group will be headed out after the run for up to a total of 20 miles (on a combination of roads and trails).

SPECIAL MLK MONDAY RUN AT 8:30:

Because the conditions on the roads prevented a lot of runners from joining us on Sunday, then come on Monday, January 19, at 8:30 a.m. to the Trailside Museum and run the same course. Bring your own maps, though, I’m likely going to take the day off.

This Sunday, January 18, at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Trailside Museum when we run the Museum to Blue Route. This 7-mile course starts down the Orange trail and winds its way to Raven Rocks and back by the Blue trail. While it’s 7 miles, the course avoids the steepest uphills (if you can believe that). Options are listed for 6.5 mile and 5.75 mile options as well. Anyone interested in starting early can arrive and be ready to run by 7:15.

For trail condition updates, see our community posts, now in beta testing.

Next week we’ll be up at Mountain Lakes Park for a new course in the works by Mark Vincent.

Hope to see you out there.
