WHAT: Are you new to trails? New to this area? New to running? Do you get nervous about the hills and roots, or feel like you might get lost? Do you wonder what the heck is an orange blaze and where on earth is Devil’s Bathtub? This group is a great place to start your journey, or learn more about parks and trails you’ve never been to. This area offers so many opportunities to our community, we want to help you get comfortable exploring.
All paces are welcome. This group is perfect for newer runners, people coming back from an injury or time off, and those looking just to get outside for an hour with a low-key and relaxed group! We always make sure no one is left behind or lost.
All runs start at 9 am and will be approximately one hour and typically cover between 3 and 5 miles, depending on pace. We will leave no one behind, and often have walkers/hikers so please come out! Please check the website for the most up to date details.
Sunday December 30th – We will end our year with a tour through Linear Park, followed by breakfast (bring a dish to pass and we will share location at the run). Meet for a 9 am start at the parking lot behind Tops on Penfield Road here
And for the start of 2019, we are excited to share our Orange Slices Adventure – each week we will explore an out and back on a “slice” of the Crescent Trail until we finish the whole thing!
