Leatherman’s Loop News, Volume 27, Issue 2: Four Days til Loop!
Plan to arrive early… The Loop start time is 9am. Plan to be at the park before 8:20am to get your bibs (and t-shirts if ordered). Even earlier is better and will let you get a look around and some warm up time.
Here’s a link to some handy maps and directions that should help you get on your way to the Loop.
If you want to make sure you are registered check here: Searchable list of registered runners.
Remember – there is no same day registration.
Bib pickup will begin at 7AM on the day of the Loop at the showmobile.
Dogs are welcome at the Park but you must obey the Park’s leash law. There will be many other dogs around. If you plan to run with your dog please start at the back to minimize potential problems with the large crowd. Please keep your dog close when running!
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.
There will be volunteers directing the parking and guiding cars to park efficiently. Please follow their directions. It is going to be tight parking and we’d like to pack ‘em in!
A few course changes are in store due to Hurricane Sandy in the Fall. You will notice the spots if you are a repeat runner. There are always some new and old obstacles to keep you all on your toes.
The forecast calls for a great day on Sunday… The winter has been a much wetter one than last year so the trails are moist and squishy. The mud flats are primed to churn into some deep chocolate pudding. Wear your whitest socks! Everything is looking good to go.
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.
Any questions please contact us.
See you on the trails…
