This Sunday, February 7, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Parking Lot and rise to the challenge of the Fifth Annual Looper Bowl. Follow the loop course and live the excitement of the Leatherman’s Loop but colder. Detours are available to avoid both water crossings but not the mud flats so be prepared to get dirty. There’s a lot of water on the course but Tony has been through the Mud Flats and cleared out the worst of the buckthorn. If you want to get an early start, arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a few extra miles.

Next week we’ll be meeting at a new location when we run the Teatown Kitchawan Trail. More on that to come.

Hope to see you there this Sunday.

This Sunday, January 24, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow Lot when we run the RAVEN LUNATIC—all of the fun of the Raven Rocks Run but with snow and no trail markers! With the winter snow arriving on Saturday, I can’t tell you what we’ll find on the trails on Sunday but this is going to be one to remember so you won’t want to miss it. If you want to get an early start, arrive at 7:00 a.m. for a few extra miles. See the map page ››

Depending on conditions on Sunday, we may have to meet at the Trailside museum instead but we’ll make the call at 7:00. If you don’t see cars at the Meadow, head to the Trailside lot.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.

Update 7:30 p.m. Saturday: Looks like we’ll have quite a bit of snow for Sunday’s run. The run is on but use your best judgement whether you can get there safely. If you do, you truly are a Raven Lunatic!

This Sunday, January 17, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge reservation Michigan Road Lot when we run Rob’s Run—6.5 miles of trails in the southern portion of the park that take us past the overlook, Leatherman’s Cave, Bear Rock Petroglyph, and Dancing Rock. Optional cutoff at intersection 34 will take a mile off the distance. If you want to get an early start, arrive at 7:00 a.m. and run north to the Meadow and return via Schoolhouse Road in time for the group start. Those looking to add extra miles after the run have some options including access to Honey Hollow Road and Upper Hook. See the map page ››

On Monday, January 18, at 8:00 a.m., meet at the parking lot on the yellow trail (see map) inside Angle Fly Preserve in Somers. We’ll run south making a perimeter loop of Angle Fly in a clockwise direction. To get to Angle Fly Preserve, take Route 35 to Route 100 North. At approximately 1/4 mile, turn left onto Route 139. and follow for 1.5 miles to Angle Fly Preserve on your left Saturday’s run in the preserve was awesome so you’re going to love this one. See the trail map here ››

And don’t forget Saturday night’s Trail Mix Awards Ceremony and Post-Holiday Party. RSVP to the invite, sign up for the potluck, bring something to drink and an inexpensive/fun gift to exchange. We’ve gotten a good response so far so it looks like we’re going to have a great party.

Hope to see you out there this weekend.
