NCR Trail Snails/BRRC Long Run
Another chance to run with the Trail Snails to run at the NCR Trail. No one knows the NCR as well as the Snails. The Snails meet at the Mile 0 marker at Ashland road. This is 1/4 mile east of York road off of Paper Mill Road. Ashland Rd leads to a small parking lot. Quiet voices are encouraged to avoid annoying local home occupants. Various paces are likely- perfect for new runners as well as moderately faster runners. Unlimited mileage potentials, so pick your distance. Mile markers are generally accurate. 7:30 am start.

Run of the Week
Pacemakers meet Falls Road Running at the Baltimore Running Festival Training Run
The Pacemakers is a great group that meets in different areas of Baltimore City and County. Bob Hilson has mapped out every inch of the Baltimore area and knows every small coffee shop and diner. The group varies from 20-50 on any given Saturday and a runner can usually find a suitable pace with others. Bob also has a written direction map for those who might need it. And, as an extra bonus- he collects old but usable running shoes to be shipped to Haiti. Here is Bob’s info for this week:
Yo, The Run is on for Saturday, the first run of fall and time for a nice tour of a good chunk of the upcoming Baltimore Marathon and Half Marathon routes.
We launch at 7 a.m. (NEW TIME) from the corner of Linwood Street and Eastern Avenue at the southeast corner of Patterson Park. The run is part of a larger run sponsored by The Falls Road Running Store and covers distances from 10 to 30 miles.
Fluids will be provided at three locations on the route, and it is suggested that you bring something to drink from. Also, if you’re not running we’d appreciate your help distributing fluids to the runners. Contact Pete or Megan at the Falls Road Running Store for more information.
