Leatherman’s Loop News, Volume 24, Issue 6: One Week to Go!
All Registered Loop Runners:
Seven days and counting…
Here’s a handy bunch of maps and directions that should help you get on your way to the Loop.
Bib pickup will begin at 7AM on the day of the Loop. Bibs are kept in alphabetical order by last name. If you ordered a t-shirt it will be noted on your bib label and you can get the shirt at the same time you pick up your bib.
Dogs are welcome at the Park but you must obey the Park’s leash law at all times (not just during the Loop). There will be many other dogs around—not to mention the wildlife at the park and other guests. Even the best behaved and trained dogs can be unpredictable in crowds and near wildlife. If you plan to run with your dog please stay back at the start to minimize potential problems with the large crowd. Please keep your dog leashed!
To help those runners interested in
to the Loop, we have set up a discussion board forum that will help you find other runners in your area that may be offering or needing a ride. Thanks to runner Noah Pearce for the great suggestion!
If you are planning to “Help Feed The Leatherman” please bring your food pantry donation to the Loop on April 25th. Your generous donation will go to the Community Center of Northern Westchester and will directly benefit families in need.
A reminder from the Pound Ridge Reservation park management: On Sunday PLEASE respect the park speed limit of 15 MPH while driving on the park roads. Take special care driving the roadway into the park and to the parking meadow. It is going to be tight parking and we’d like to pack ‘em in!
Plan to arrive early… The Loop starts at 9am. Plan to be at the park before 8:30am to get your bibs (and t-shirts if ordered). Remember – there is no same day registration.
There will be volunteers directing the parking and guiding cars to park efficiently. Please follow their directions.
The course looks good after some bushwhacking by a crack team of Leatherman Harriers volunteers yesterday. Never fear—there are still some nice obstacles and ‘special trail surprises’ to keep you all on your toes. The 7 day forecast calls for rain on Sunday. The Loop goes off rain or shine.
Have a safe trip—CAR POOL if you can! Park & Ride from Katonah train station lot on Woodbridge Road or John Jay High School on Route 121.
