    5:15 pm - 6:15 pm

Join us on the second Thursday of June, July, August and September at 5:15pm for a casual trail run on BTLT trails!

These outings will be casual trail runs, not races.  At each location we will designate running loops with a meeting point about 0.75 to 1.0 miles away from the parking place.  We will re-group there.  Those that wish can return to the parking place (having run 1.5 to 2.0 miles).  Others may wish to continue on to tackle other loops.  Most runs cover 3 to 4 miles in total.

Please register for this free event.

See below for a map of the proposed run and directions to the start at Head of Tide Park.

 

General Guidelines:

We plan to meet at 5:15 pm and finish by 6:15 pm.  We will congregate at the meeting point for a few minutes for orientation, but generally we will not wait for “late-arrivers,” unless someone has let us know in advance.

Expect mosquitos and ticks; bring bug spray! No dogs, please!

Each person younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult. 

Each person is responsible for his/her safety. We will have one or two people with cell phones for emergencies. 

Try to car pool if possible.

We need a rough idea of the number that will be attending each week, so use the Facebook page or email to let us know if you will attend.

We plan to run rain or shine.  If thunder/lightning is predicted, we will cancel and post on our Facebook page by 5:00 pm.

Beginners welcome!

 

Please note that the 5 – 6 portion of this route will likely change due to changes in the trails at CRNP. As we get closer to this event, we will reassess the trail.

Coming from the south, parking areas are located on the right just before short bridge over the river, and on the left just past the bridge (across from picnic table shelter). While not the actual address of the park, you can use 259 Cathance Road for GPS directions.
