Bad news, runners. As you know, Monday’s storm caused a lot of damage in Stewart Park, which remains closed until further notice. Please don’t run there until we get the all-clear from the City. (But if you want to get some upper-body work in, volunteers are needed for cleanup today from 4-6 PM or any other time when you can help.)
Plus, @kag22 reported that the Forest Frolic course has numerous trees down, turning it into an obstacle course. Trail coordinator Joe Dabes is working on it, but Karen relayed that he said part of the Finger Lakes Trail is closed in that area. Until we know more and get an update on the trail conditions from Joe, save yourself the drive and don’t run out there either.
The good news is that other canonical FLRC trails seem to have escaped major damage. @lizhartman and @jullfly ran the Danby Down & Dirty course yesterday and reported that although there were some trees down, they were easy enough to get around or go under. And @lizhartman ran Thom B. on Wednesday and reports that it’s in fine shape. Finally, @mickiejauquet and @bobtalda report that the Tortoise & Hare course is passable too, with just one small tree down that will probably be cleared soon enough.
