This Saturday we're joining the Striders for their weekly Bagel Run: http://www.striders.net/bagel-run/. They always start at 7:00 am so plan to arrive by 6:50 am sharp.

Your best bet is to introduce yourself to their group, say how many miles you'd like to run and at what pace. They've usually got so many people that it shouldn't be a problem to find a good group to run with.

If you prefer to fly solo, visit their website http://www.striders.net/bagel-run/ for some suggested routes and mileages.

It's a tricky course so either stick with a group, print out a map/turn-by-turn directions or upload the route to your Garmin. Please don't get lost.
  • This run is supported by the Striders, meaning there will be water stations along the way. Nonetheless I encourage you to carry your own water and sports nutrition.
  • The run starts and ends at the Bagel Bin, a bagel shop. I will point out its location to you in the morning. Plan to meet there afterwards.
