Hey Stone Millers and Other Assorted Trail Critters,
It’s time for #2! Um…not THAT number two…hopefully…although SH*% happens…TMI…but I digress. I’m talking about Stone Mill Course Preview #2! Come on out and get a look-see at what you’ll be facing on race day. Never hurts to get a gander at what is coming your way on a course. The more you know, the more you can plan your race day strategy.
This week we’ll be doing an out-n-back starting at Pennyfield Lock and hit…ting the Muddy Branch section of the course (Miles 15 – 24 of actual race). Total distance is 18-ish but do a shorter distance if you’d like. All runners are welcome.
Here are some things:
1) We are accepting donations for these runs. $5 suggested but we also accept loose change from under your car seat (just pick out the old Cheetos and dog hair, please)
2) Course will not be flagged. Good exercise in self-reliance on the trails. Besides no one ever gets lost , they just do extra miles, right?
3) We’ll have water out on the course. Probably at Turkey Foot Road.
4) We provide light snackeroos at the finish. Feel free to bring something to share if you want. Trail dogs like to eat. That’s a fact!
5) You don’t have to be doing Stone Mill to participate in these course previews. All are welcome (except whiners, rabble-rousers and malcontents)
Here are the details:
Location: Pennyfield Lock, 12100-12226 Pennyfield Lock Rd Potomac, MD 20854 (When you get to the canal go all the way to your left. Carpool if you can to conserve space.
Coords: 39.054886, -77.290206
