For anyone who enjoyed my Ridge Road trip on the weekend of Western Michigan, here’s another of a similar flavor. We’ll drive to the base of Monticello’s hill, then run up on dirt and boardwalk-type trails to the entrance to Monticello. The first 1.5 miles are up hill, but it is not a difficult hill. On the run we will pass Michie Tavern, another historic Charlottesville locale. There are some great views of Charlottesville to be had, as well as the glory of running in the woods. We will keep a slow pace (~10 min/mile). It is pretty impossible to get lost.
Bring: Water, Youself properly dressed for running
AM I IN SHAPE ENOUGH? If you can run for 35 minutes around grounds without extreme effort, you are in shape enough. If you can do this, please join. If you can’t, please don’t. If you’re not sure, sign up, try it this week, and withdraw if you can’t. Thanks.
Trip Size is 5 (my car), will be enlarged if drivers join. Club will NOT pay gas (it’s only just past the Downtown Mall). Max size is 3 cars, 12-15 people.
