Join us on Sunday, September 18th, for an FLRC group trail run on the Danby Down & Dirty race course. We will meet at 8:30am and run at 8:45am.
This free activity is open to all. We will be previewing the Danby Down & Dirty route for the upcoming race on Saturday, September 24th, but you are invited to the group run regardless or your race day plans. We do ask that you sign the waiver. You need to sign the waiver only once for all 2022 group runs, so if you’ve already signed it, you’re all set! (Check Webscorer to verify that you signed.)
We will meet at the race starting line area (more details below), and run either 10K (one loop) or 23K (two loops but the second loop has been tweaked this year by race director @Petorius). @DamianClemons will lead the 23K, and I will lead the 10K.
Please vote in the poll below with your 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.
- Sub-8:00-minute pace
- 8:00-9:00-minute pace
- 9:00-10:00-minute pace
- 10:00-11:00-minute pace
- 11:00-12:00-minute pace
- 12:00-13:00-minute pace
- 13:00-minute+ pace
- I plan on hiking
Let’s try to reduce the number of car trips to fight climate change and be more inclusive. Vote if you need a ride or can give one, and reply to this post with meetup details.

The start location is south of Ithaca in Danby on Michigan Hollow Road at the parking lot for the Abbott Loop near the intersection with Smiley Hill Road.
The Danby Down & Dirty race page has detailed mapping information, and you may want to bring a printout of the course and/or written directions.
We also recommend our RunGo real-time, turn-by-turn directions. Download the free RunGo app to your phone and search for “Danby”—be sure to pick the 10K or 23K option. You will get audible cues for when and where to turn based on a GPS connection, so you don’t need cell service.
(Apple Watch users can download the directions to your iPhone and transfer them to RunGo on the watch, allowing you to leave your iPhone behind and get directions on your wrist. I have had the best luck transferring directions at home with my normal connectivity and waiting a few minutes before double-checking that it worked.)
If you have questions, contact me, @tonya (leading the 10K distance) or @DamianClemons (leading the 23K distance). To ask about volunteering as a greeter/host for similar group runs, contact FLRC Group Run director Heather Cobb.
