Remember to use appropriate safety protocols.
Group gatherings need to be limited to 10 or less.
(Most of us end up running in a smaller group than 10)
No large group starts.
When your running companions are ready to go – go ahead and get started. I will not be making any announcements at the start.
No gathering for post-run refreshments.
Turn left out of the parking lot. Pick up the Cartersville Trail behind the Marathon Gas Station. Follow the Cartersville trail along the south side of the canal until you are across from Knickerbocker. (Or stay on 96 if you don’t like the trail.) Turn left onto Knickbocker, and head up the hill. Turn right on Pittsford Mendon Rd. At the 4 way intersection, go straight onto Stone. Tobey and Stone will run together, then go left to stay on Stone. Turn right on Clover, then pick up the canal and head back to the basin. Distance is 11.3 miles.
You can cut the route short by a half-mile (and avoid a large hill) by staying on Tobey over to Clover (10.8 miles)
For 13.7 miles – follow the main route. When you reach the canal- head west on the canal to the JCC – then turn around and return to the basin.
For 8.5 miles – follow the main route until you get to the 4 way intersection with Stone. Turn right and follow this to the canal, then follow the canal back to the basin.
