7/27/13 B&A Trail

Both Emily and I will be out of town this weekend so we won't be around to lead the run. Best get in touch with your go-to running buddies and double-check that they're driving down to the run. As always, I encourage meeting at 7:00 AM to beat the heat.


We've run this route before and here's the link to the run: http://www.hopkinsmarathon.com/home/runs/saturday111712batrail

The only (though unlikely) possibility of getting lost on this route is at the very beginning as you head east from Sawmill Creek Park. From the parking lot, head south until you hit a paved trail and follow it east for approx. half a mile until you arrive at the trailhead of the B&A trail. Once on the trail it's a simple out and back, there a mile markers on the side as well as numerous signs assuring you that you're still on the B&A trail.


  • Marathon training goal: 14 Mi
  • Half marathon goal: 8 Mi
  • Water and restrooms are available at the park headquarters.
  • Don't forget to sign-up for carpooling (see link at the top of this page).
Sorry I can't be there this week but hope to see everyone next week.
