February 25th Route

We’ve survived ice, wind, sleet and snowbanks to make it this far. Winter’s not done and neither are we.

This week we run the South End in reverse – down Agricola past the Citadel, flying down South Park, hanging a right on Inglis and then back up Robie. Cutting across Spring Garden makes it a 4K.

Map the route here.

We leave North Brewing Co right at 6, so please try to arrive a little early.

Bust out the Yaktrax. The latest blast of winter has made streets and sidewalks the icebound enemy. If you don’t have spikes, you might want to skip this week’s crew run. Let’s go easy, stay together, and shout out the danger spots. 

We’re testing out the South End’s snow-clearing skills with a route that Heads down Robie to Inglis and back up South Park, crossing between Citadel Hill and the Common to Agricola with the option to make it a 4K by cutting across Spring Garden.

Reminder that we leave North Brewing Co right at 6, so please try to arrive a little early.

Snow, salt, and ice pellets all try – and fail – to slow us down. Get at us tomorrow for a frosty throw down in the north. We’re heading down Robie, across Coburg and up Oxford to Beech, Connolly and across Bayers. Make it a 4K by short-cutting across Quinpool.

And It’s the first of the month so we’re be wrapping up the route at the Mayflower Curling Club for pints and k-dogs from The Food Wolf.
