Our running routes for this Saturday are now available. This week there is a 7-mile and 4-mile route. With the slightly longer runs, we are able to hit a few new streets on the 7-mile route, so be sure to review it prior to Saturday. We have not lost a runner yet, and we would like to keep it up. The detailed directions are available under the Written Routes link to the right. Look for City Lake + Hammond. The map is to the right as well. Look under the YMCA Route Maps. I also emailed out some mini "pocket" directions you can print if you are unfamiliar with the route.
The four mile route will be the same as last week except you will continue towards Sunset Ave. on the paved trail. At the skate park you will see a yellow 2 painted on the ground (beside a fire hydrant). Turn around here and return to the YMCA. If you would like to run 4.8, continue across Sunset, and run on Lake Drive. At the back of the lake, pick up the paved trail and finish the loop. Cross back over Sunset and head to the YMCA.
I will be gone the next two weekends, but Frank will be leading the group out and available for any questions.
