Stone Mill 50 Mile Course Preview Run #3 – Saturday 27 October

Yo Stone Millers,
Gonna see who is tough this weekend. Weather folks are forecasting a bit of ducky weather…chilly, rainy and raw. Hmm…I know some ducks that might opt to stay home in the warmth of their humble homes getting weaker…and weaker. Whereas you bad-asses will be out tackling the Stone Mill Course Preview #3! Gotta tell ya, you don’t know what Mother Nature is going to throw at you on race day so it gives you a leg up if you train in crap. I always say ‘the more crap you run through the less crap will affect you.’ So, your call…be weak and timid and eff up on race day if its rainy and cold or be a bad-ass who can run through anything and everything. I know what I’m choosing…C U on the trails!
This week we will again meet at Pennyfield Lock where we met last week.. This week we will head up the canal to Riley’s Lock to the start of the Greenway by THE Stone Mill (it’ll be on your left). Then we will head up the Greenway to Rt. 28 and turn around there. Should be 20-ish miles round trip. Those wishing to go shorter can turn around where ever.
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 Berryville 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
Time: 0730
