The next FLRC group run will be this Saturday August 19th, at Kennedy State Forest, and will act as a preview for the Two Hollows Monster Marathon and Half Marathon race coming up on September 3rd. This is the perfect opportunity to get a feel for the course.
We’ll meet at the corner of Adams Road and Owego Hill Road in the town of Harford, NY (do NOT attempt to approach via Owego Hill Road from the north) at 8:30 AM and start running at 8:45 AM. Race directors Nancy Kleinrock and Steve Vanek will lead groups looking to complete the full 13.1-mile course, while race director Steve Shaum will lead a 6.5-mile tour of the first three-quarters of the course (and, yes, those numbers actually make sense). Longer distance runners will pass the start/finish where the cars are parked at 9.8 miles for anyone wishing to resupply or call it a day at that point. 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 Two Hollows Monster.
Register for Two Hollows Monster Marathon and Half Marathon! Please do so before August 23rd to avoid a price hike ($45 to $75), and so the race directors have the proper amount of food, finisher awards, and so forth on hand on race day.
We can always use volunteers, so check out the Helper Helper opportunities and sign up today.
Please vote in the poll below by indicating your anticipated road-running pace so others can get a sense of who else will be running their pace. We always have a wide range of runners, so you’ll generally find someone to run with.

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.)
