Night Trails at Redland M.S.

We do it again tonight, Bad-asses! While everyone else is in their cushy warm humble homes we will be out crushing it on the trails of Redland! You can always warm up later!

There is more calories heading your way as we head in to the holiday season full force so keep coming out for a weekly calorie burn with us.

Post T-Day Trail Run @ Little Bennett 7:30am

Hi MuddyShoes –

Hope you had a lovely turkey day filled with food, drink, laughter.  Now back to the trails!

We will be heading out to Little Bennett Regional Park in Clarksburg (I think this is the 3rd year in a row?).  But as some of you all may know, I like to find new trails and see new things – even in a park we’ve spent some time running around in!   So we’ll be parking in a new location & running some new (to mymuddyshoes) trails.  (our normal parking lot area is closed due to the rain/mud anyways!)

Some of you all may be familiar with these trails, so come on out and help the others who may get a bit lost 😊 One of my favorite parts of trail running is when I find that I’ve gone off course and have to navigate my way back.

Trails won’t be marked so PLEASE download a park map & also keep my Caltopo map link handy

Pre-Gluttony Night Time Calorie Burn Off Trail Run @ Redland M.S.

Hey Trail Turkeys,

The day of giving thanks is rapidly approaching. Tuesday night is a good time to burn off that beer-keg-belly or muffin top on the skinny trails of Redland ahead of the feasting. So give yer pie hole a break and get out on the single track of Derwood with some like-minded trailes of questionable character (aren’t they all questionable characters?) Anyway, c’mon out for our regularly scheduled Muddy Shoes Tuesday Trail Run.

Here are the details:

Address: Redland Middle School 6505 Muncaster Mill Rd. Derwood, MD 20855 (Go around to the right behind the school)
Coordinates: 39.140231, -77.130656
Time: 6:30 (6:15 for warmup)
Course: Counter-Clockwise, Lower Trail first

***Congratulations to all Stone Mill 50 Runners! The mud was apocalyptic in places…well, maybe not the end-of-the-world-bad but it was fairly epic. Required a bit more effort which makes you all a bit more sore. Well, I say enjoy the shuffle!!! Savor it! It’s all good! Unless there is chafing…then its bad…

Outta the Way Tuesday Trails @ Redland M.S.

Hey Tree Slappers,

What better time to go out in the chilly, moist darkness of the Redland Woods and hit the single track than this Tuesday? Its the first Muddy Shoes run since the Phantastic Phall Phat Ass this past Sunday and the last chance to go out and carb load together for those doing the Grand-Daddy of MoCo trail races, The Stone Mill 50, this Saturday. We’ll retrace some of the Phat Ass course for a bit, hitting both the Upper and Lower trails, get all muddy and dirty and then go out in public looking like a bunch of dirt bags (BTW, ‘dirt bag’ is a compliment to a trail runner, ya know). Lets do it! C’mon out and enjoy the vibe!

Here are the detailed details:

Address: Redland Middle School 6505 Muncaster Mill Rd. Derwood, MD 20855 (Go around to the right behind the school)
Coordinates: 39.140231, -77.130656
Time: 6:30 (6:15 for warmup)
Course: Clockwise, Upper Trail first

*** Stone Mill 50 Miler is this Saturday. Go out to the spectator points and cheer folks on (or just come watch them suffer!!! No, that’s mean!) Here is a link where you can view the runners ; https://stone-mill-50-mile.org/spectators/

*** Check out our Muddy Shoes merch! We got Hats ($15), Buffs ($10) and magnets/stickers ($1). They are going fast! Get yours from Robin (Hats), Phil (Hats, Buffs, Magnets/stickers) or Mike Chau (Buffs and magnets/stickers ($1). ). US Dollars only!

OK, that’s it for now.

Election Day Evening Trail Run @ Redland M.S.

Well, folks, I vote for getting muddy out in the woods Tuesday night. Just like we always do. Come join us, after you cast your vote, for a bi-partisan night on the trails. Guaranteed to be no mention of politics. The most divisive issue we will face is whether to do the Upper or Lower Trail first. There is always a debate about this but I, Coach Phil, as the supreme ruler of the Tuesday Night Run will cast the final ballot on our direction. What? You thought Tuesday Trails was a democracy? HaHa, think again!

Here are the details:

Address: Redland Middle School 6505 Muncaster Mill Rd. Derwood, MD 20855 (Go around to the right behind the school)

Course: Counter-Clockwise, Lower Trail first

Other Important Stuff:

*** Hey Muddy Shoes peeps. It’s time to RSVP for the Phourth Annual Phantastic Phall Phat Ass. Can you believe it’s been PHOUR years!?? Please let me know if you are running. Also let me know if you can volunteer!! http://mymuddyshoes.org/…/3rd-annual-phantastic-phall-phat…/

Stone Mill 50 Mile Preview Run #4 – Rt.28 Trail Head (about 22 miles) 7:30AM

Hi Hi Trail Peoples!

We are at the last of the Stone Mill 50 mile preview runs.  This run will take you North up Greenway and Seneca Ridge Trail to Quince Orchard Road. Down Rt. 28 (sidewalk to start of Muddy Branch trail).  If you aren’t interested in pavement running you can hang a right on the Seneca Greenway when you get back to Riffleford Rd and head back into Seneca Creek State Park for bonus miles!

Here are the standard 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 – Riffleford Rd.
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)

Location details:

Rt 28 Seneca Greenway Trailhead

Google Plus Code: 4MH8+7R Darnestown, 6, MD (for Google Maps)
