Ice Age Trail (University Golf Course segment & beyond?)

Great seeing many of you yesterday at our first real meet up for the Madison Trail Runners! That was fun. Let's do that again. And let's hope the weather is just as cooperative, but if it's like tomorrow will be, we can always reschedule. For the next run, let's keep it local once again. I am thinking the Golf Course segment of the Ice Age Trail. It has a lot of nice terrain and woods, so it's a great route. Another nice perk is that there's only one parking in the area. The parking lot is just south of PD/McKee and just to the west of South High Point Road (with a prairie around it and a couple random sheds). For the running route, the most basic out and back route is just over 6 miles (which I'll set as the plan for now), but if there's interest (and nice conditions), the trip can be extended quite a bit further. I'm totally flexible on that. Either way, I hope to see you out there!

Just a general note: Any of you are always welcome to suggest/schedule future run meet ups. And routes too.

    8Am works better for me as well. I usually do my runs early before I am awake and can talk myself out of it.

    I have a family commitment that conflicts- anyone available at 8 am instead? same place/route?

      Hi Hollis, Will 8 am generally work better in future events? That time usually works for me just as well as 10, if not better actually, especially as spring approaches. I might do a poll at some point to find out when is best for most people. Thanks again for joining us on Saturday! Hope you are staying warm this week.

      yes, with 2 small kids, it's easier to get my run done early- doesn't cut up family day so much. I do my long runs T/T mornings if anyone else has a non traditional schedule? :-)

    I tend to work Saturdays, let me know if there is a Sunday run coming up!

      Good to know! I'll try to make the next one a Sunday. Also, you're always most welcome to suggest routes/dates and I can post additional meet ups at any time.
