Summer 25k Training Run #2 – Saturday 5/25 7:30AM Watkins Mill HS

Hi hi MuddyShoes Summer Training People!

We are underway in our Summer 25k training program and this weekend calls for a 10 mile training run. The run this weekend will start at Wakins Mill HS and head south on the Seneca Greenway Trail to just before the Clopper Rd bridge. There will be water out at the Izak Walton League driveway and that is showing 5.36 miles on the Caltopo Map (link below). This will make the out and back around 11 miles, but what’s an extra mile to the MuddyShoes group??

It’s going to be getting hotter as we progress through the summer so please make sure you bring at least a water bottle with you. We will have water at the turnaround and at the start/finish as well as other fruit, dessert and salty goodies.

If you are planning on runnning the 25k program with us this summer and haven’t paid I can take your $10 fee which helps us with buying supplies for each run and paying for our website.

I’ll also have a few hats, buffs, stickers and magnets available.

Details:

Where – Wakins Mill HS 10301 Apple Ridge Rd, Gaithersburg, MD 20879

When – Saturday May 25th @ 7:30AM

What – 10 – 11 miles southbound on the Seneca Greenway Trail

Why – Because you don’t want to bonk at the MD Heat Race 🙂
