Saturday Long Run

There is an organized run every Saturday morning at the Pump House starting at 7:30. Paces and distances (up to 20 miles) vary widely and there are usually enough people running to find someone or a group to run with. Water and gatorade are put out by one of the runners every week. Coming for the first time? It’ll be great! We start here:


Runners put out the water and gatorade. In other words, if we don’t put it out it doesn’t get put out and then we are all thirsty and annoyed!! Fortunately, we have the WATER BARON who coordinates the Saturday fluids. What’s most important is that you sign up to put out the water, or you will feel the wrath of the Baron.

There are two places we have water and gatorade (click the link for directions):

The Mailboxes: This is 3.3 miles from the start

The Triangle: This is 2.2 miles on Quaker Ridge Rd from stop 1.

Wednesday Speed Workout

Coach Jack Brennan runs a workout at Rockefeller Preserve every Wednesday — each week it’s a different workout with particular objectives and challenges; contact Jack via email to find out what’s going on right now. Jack sends out a weekly email, which is great to have if you’re going to the workout, but also useful if you’re missing it. You can emulate the workout on your own and not feel sad that you missed an awesome run.

The workout starts at 5:30pm, and usually begins here..

Meadow Loop the Last Daylight Speed Workout of 2016

We can start at 5:30PM but for those who can’t make it that early it will be very easy to jump in to the 2nd or even the 3rd loop. I’ll stay later if needed.

If you haven’t already done so please let me know if you are interested in our “Night Ops” workout which begins next week. It is a different mailing list and only those who request it are on it.

Thanks for your generous gift. It is greatly appreciated. It was a wonderful year seeing so many of you improve and have outstanding years.
Meadow Loop
The course is most uphill for the 1st approximately 500m followed by a relatively flat 300m or so and finishing with a long downhill of about 500m. It’s a great course for practicing both your downhill and uphill form. I can go over my thoughts on that before the workout at the meeting spot. Again the course is just on the other side of the arched bridge near where we meet.
