Whether you are already signed up or still on the fence about this year’s Bluff 50k, fear not the Bites are back for your enjoyment and motivation! Each one will cover separate sections of the entire Bluff 50k course so if you run all three you’ll have a pretty good idea of what’s to come on race day.
Bite 1: August 26, 2012 @ 8:00 am. Meet at the Guilford Lakes School, Maupas Rd, Guilford. This will be an out and back route to Race Hill Rd that is dog friendly and about 8 miles in total.
Bite 2: September 16, 2012 @ 8:00 am. Meet opposite the monestary off Race Hill Rd, Guilford. This is another out and back route that sadly isn’t dog friendly. There is a good chance you will get wet feet on this section which will turn at the intersection with the Mattabasset Trail. The distance is approximately 12 miles, but I have been known to misjudge these things!
Bite 3: September 30, 2012 @ 8:00 am. The flagship bite over Bluff Head! A gentle 12 miles starting at the Rockland Preserve entrance off Renee’s Way, Madison. The route is a dog friendly loop that will include Bluff Head, Northwoods and the Rockland Preserve, lots of rocks, roots and ‘gentle’ undulations. Trust me!
Participation in all or any of these runs is free and at your own risk. Pre-registration is not required, but if you need directions please request them via the Contact Form. Bite 2 passes through Regional Water Authority property that requires a recreation permit. If you don’t have one, there are usually enough guest passes to go around, please try to let me know in advance if you need one.
