4 Mile Run in Ridgewood (Wild Duck Pond)

Needs a location

This run starts at the "Wild Duck Pond" area of the Saddle River County Park in Ridgewood. We will start at the beginning of the mile markers which is near the exit, not near the entrance. There's parking close to the beginning of the path. If you cannot park in the lot nearest the beginning of the path, you'll need to reenter the park and park in the next closest lot. The driving area of the park is U-shaped so to get to the parking lot closest to the start of the run, you essentially drive around the "U" and approach the exit to the last lot on the right (by the dog park).

We will start at the "Wild Duck Pond Area" and will turn around at some point. If you'd like to run additional miles, you are certainly more than welcome to do so as the mile markers make it simple to track your distance. Depending on the turnout we sometimes break off into little groups of two or three people, each of which may go at slightly different paces and/or distances. Regardless, if you wish to run at a slower pace, I am more than happy to run with you at your preferred pace. Nobody gets left in the dust. This is a fun run, not a competition.

We will run rain or shine, hot or cold. If you RSVP "Yes", please do your best to be on time as we'll only wait a couple of minutes past the scheduled start time to get rolling. If you have questions, comments, or doubts, feel free to email me. Looking forward to seeing you on Thursday.

Streets of Ridgewood Saturday Morning 5-Mile Run

Needs a location

This will be a 5 mile route that goes through the streets of Ridgewood. We will meet outside Ridgewood Coffee Company, just across from the big clock in Ridgewood at the intersection of E. Ridgewood Ave. and Oak St. There are benches outside if you feel like sitting down and there's coffee inside if you're sleepy. The route is flexible depending on who shows up. The route will be mostly on sidewalks.

Please bring coins or a credit card to park at the meters in Ridgewood. Enforcement begins at 10:00 am so if you're just coming for the run you'll be fine. If you want to hang for a cup of coffee afterwards, you'll have to pay for some meter time. You can park a little further away from Ridgewood Coffee Company to avoid the meters.

4 Mile Run in Rutherford - meet at Rutherford Train Station

Needs a location

This will be a 4 mile run or so through the streets of Rutherford. If you want a completely flat run, this run's not for you as there are gradual uphills and downhills throughout the run.

You are strongly encouraged to wear reflective gear. We run in the street and anything we can do to make ourselves more visible to drivers can only improve our safety. Evening running in the fall and winter seasons means a fair amount of darkness. Safety first!

**Please keep your RSVP current. Please do not RSVP "Yes" and not show up. Out of courtesy the group waits a few minutes for people who have posted a "Yes" RSVP.

For the most part, we will run rain or shine, hot or cold. If you have questions, comments, or doubts, feel free to email me. Looking forward to seeing you.
