Great 14.2km this morning, mostly on trails. Love this time of year when the sun is up so early.

Nothing like Sunday's run. Just a few, but easy to scoot around.

Rumpelstiltskin was taken? :)

Best run for what you are asking is from P7 (Kingsmere) to Champlain Lookout and back. Quite runnable in road shoes. If you want to go longer you can continue on Trail 1.

Tomorrow's Route if you are up for it - http://www.movescount.com/moves/move14759575

Lots of twists, turns, up, downs, roots and rocks - lots and lots of rocks

I got a little turned around at Bonk Point, but figured it out. It is not an easy run

8:00 it is.

I will likely do some sort of a run there Saturday as well and will post route for an idea of distances.

So Sunday June 16th. Meet at the Trail Entrance at the top of Klondike for 12km's of exploring. Meeting time 8:00 or 8:30? I will likely bring Strider Puppy too.

Re: Gatineau Park & Ottawa area trail runs - Add yours!

I'm game for anything...but maybe before BBQ? If I have a beer at BBQ and stuff my belly it may be tough to run. Ps. That is one intense looking picture...was that at the 99k mark :) BBQ is your place Saturday, isn't it? We won't stay late so you have to digest and hydrate. Actually the picture was...

Re: Gatineau Park & Ottawa area trail runs - Add yours!

I did a couple of runs in that area last year and it was awesome. I almost broke my ankle the first time out, but what the heck, LOL. It's simply gorgeous in there and I was really surprised by the terrain and some of the elevation changes. It's an awesome spot for sure. Yeah there are some pretty ...

NICE...another spot a bit closer than Gatineau. So who wants to volunteer to show me around? Strider/Mike/someone else? Both? All of you? :) Give me a couple more weeks recovery and I'll drag you around there. Trail head/entrance is about a 4km from my place, we can run from our front door and with...

Re: Gatineau Park & Ottawa area trail runs - Add yours!

MikeM, there are always the trails off 2nd line too you can run on. I have gotten in a couple of 2.5-3 hrs snowshoe runs there this winter. Finally tried those this morning. Only ran about 5k/30min on an inner loop for today but I'll be back for many more runs throughout the summer and fall. So nic...

Re: Strider - Kettle Moraine

Thanks guys. As good a day as it was it was very tough, Paced well, BUT the heat took it's toll, along with an Achilles that was giving me some major pains. Thinking of run/walking 60km more seemed foolish. No regrets dropping, or shall we say completing a 100km race in 12:28. As many things went wr...
