Sunday Skunkday group run on 2/25 at 8:30 AM at Barton Hall

On Sunday, we’ll meet inside the front doors of Barton Hall (facing Teagle Hall, where Skunk starts) at 8:30 AM. At 8:45 AM, we’ll split up into rough pace and distance groups, take a group picture, and then run the Skunk course, more or less. Please look at the course maps below—almost everyone last week assumed someone else would know the course. :roll_eyes:

Everyone is welcome, even if you’re not an FLRC member or planning to run Skunk. Regardless, you must sign the FLRC Training Programs waiver once for 2024.

Although the Barton bathrooms will be open, I can’t guarantee that you can leave stuff inside the building during the run — I might have to re-lock the doors after we head out.

Unless there’s a big Cornell event, there’s usually plenty of free (on Sunday) parking in the Crescent Lot east of Schoellkopf Stadium or in Cornell’s parking garage.

Any questions, just ask. See you Sunday!

I’ve also created the courses for both routes on Strava and made available for GPX / TCX download if people want to put it on a watch!

Skunk Cabbage 10K Route


My lungs are still recovering from a bout of COVID in January, so I will be doing a 4+ mile loop course that takes in the first 2 miles of the new Skunk Course (so going east on the Rec Way) and then loops back via farm roads and Tower Road. I’m happy to have company and will probably walk up the hill on Game Farm because of the post-COVID thing. I’d love company for any or all of this. My pace will be 10-11 minutes.

Thank you for organizing the run. Was my first ever group run and I was excited to meet new people and have a company that kept my focus away from feelings of being tired.

Glad you could join us, @AlexCh, and we hope you can fit more runs into your schedule!

This was a huge group with our largest Sunday Skunkday turnout ever at 40 people. It was such fun to see so many runners happily chatting away beforehand. I hope everyone enjoyed the sunny—if chilly—weather. See you next week!
