The next FLRC group run will be this Saturday October 7, at Danby State Forest, hosted by @Jeney, and will act as a preview for the Danby Down and Dirty race (10K or 23K) coming up on October 14. If you are feeling some trepidation about the course, this is the perfect opportunity to get a feel for it, but you are invited to the group run regardless or your race day plans.
We’ll meet at the race starting line area at 8:30 AM and start running at 8:45 AM. There will be post-run snacks available so please stick around after for socializing and a delicious breakfast.
RunGo directions are available so if you’re not running with someone who is 100% familiar with the trails, please use them. You can view them online and download them to the RunGo app on your smartphone or Apple Watch. Search for Danby Down and Dirty 10k Trail Race or Danby Down and Dirty 23k Trail Race.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of age, ability, pace, or anything else. This is a free activity and club membership is not required, but please sign the waiver before your first run this year. You only need to sign the waiver once for all 2023 group runs, so if you’ve already signed it, you’re all set! (Check Webscorer to verify that you signed.)
