Tree Frog Run at WWC

Bring a light and join us for a fun 5-6 miles on the WWC trails. This is a no-drop run that meets by the fence near the trail head.  Our group's average pace is usually between 8m and 12m per mile, and we have about 4-5 spots where we wait for everyone to catch up during the run. Our group typically runs 2 options, depending on how everyone feels:

Option 1: South + Carpet, Goat Hill, Weigh Station, & Toilet Bowl - (just under 6 miles)

Option 2: North + Figure 8, then South Main, without the extras (just over 6 miles)

Note: Sunset is around 7:30pm, so just keep that in mind that if you plan on running 6 miles, we're getting to that time of year when you may need a headlamp.

If you don't know the trails too well, and/or you plan to run fewer than 6 there are pre-marked 1.5, 3.5 and 6 mile courses.  Alternately, you can always adapt your own route with us if you want. North + Figure 8 is about 4 miles, and south Main Loop is about 3 miles without all the extras. Every now and then a few of us might tack on East Loop or Lake Loop for some extra credit. Check out the course map here.

NOTE: if the WWC's website has marked the trails as closed, we will not be holding this run.  Always check the USNWC.org website for trail status prior to heading that way. Http://usnwc.org

    Hi Marcus - I'd love to try this with the group - but new to trail running. Are street running sneakers okay for these trails?

      Sorry just now seeing this. For the most part they are, although you may find it has less grip on the leaves and pinestraw

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
