February 13, 2021 – The Original Hearnish 10K

February 13, 2021 – The Original Hearnish 10K

The long range forecast is calling for extremely cold temperatures for this week. I thought it would be appropriate to run the original Hearnish 10K route for the Freezeroo Series. You can keep it short and relatively sheltered, or you can add on for a longer workout.

The short route is 8.7 miles, which includes getting to and returning from the original route.

Turn left out of the Park-n-Ride.  Turn right onto Park Rd.  Take Park Road all the way to East St.  Turn left onto East St.  East will change names to Mile Square.  Turn left onto Probst.  Turn left onto Miles Cutting, then a right onto Railroad Mills.  At the intersection with Probst –  turn left to continue on Railroad Mills.  Go up the big hill.  Turn left onto Fishers Rd, then take a left onto Woolston.  Right onto Corduroy, right onto Park Rd and a left onto 96 brings you back to the Park-n-Ride.

http://www.gmap-pedometer.com?r=5265609

For the longer option – when you get to the top of the hill on Railroad Mills – turn right on Fishers Rd and finish with a traditional Fishers Run.  Turn left on Main St Fishers, left on Log Cabin, right on Lower Fishers, left on Benson, right on Fishers and return to Park-n-Ride through Powder Mills Park.  This Distance is 12.6 miles.

December 26, 2020 – Holiday Neighborhood Run – Marsh Rd

Turn right out of the parking lot, turn right on Marsh Rd. Cross over the canal and continue on Marsh Rd.

The rule for this run is to turn right at every intersection. When you get to a cul-de-sac, turn around. When you get to Rt. 31, turn around. When you arrive back at Rt. 96, turn left and return to the parking lot.

Slower runners can turn around when the lead runners are coming back from a cul-de-sac.
