And It’s the first crew run in March, so bring your pack hunger for some eats from the Food Wolf and pints at The Mayflower.

Snow can’t slow this down. Through the drifts and into glory.

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.

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.
