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..

7/11 Speed Workout

This week is the club meeting and also the beer mile. In a major concession session to non-drinkers the race now allows participants to drink any 12 ounce carbonated beverage. Those of you who don’t drink soda either can drink seltzer water. You have to supply your own beverage (4 x 12 oz. cans).

If there is enough interest I can also have a speed work on the track at Yorktown HS. We would need to start promptly at 5:45 . Please let me know if you would want this otherwise the beer/soda mile will be the workout.

Beer Mile 7/11/18 – Taconic Road Runners Club<www.runner.org/beer/>
Back for another year. The beer mile is on July 11 (it’s during our monthly meeting!).. Come one, come all. We’re doing our beer mile a little differently by doing out and back quarters, because we could, er, never get a permit to do this on a track.
