Long Run - next weekend (01-15-12)

If you are interested let me know...

Mark you calendar for the little kahuna 20.5 mile epic run from Bradford, MA to Salisbury, MA on January 15.
This very flat course from Dan's house in Bradford to the Winner's Circle in Salisbury (211 Elm Street, Salisbury, MA) has a net drop of 67 feet.  The course is a combination of road (6 miles) and trail (14 miles) with the longest road stretch on road being just over a mile.  The trail is very run-able (assuming we get no snow).
Please let Dan ( and Dave ( know if you plan on running so that we can set up a car shuttle.  The plan would be to meet at the Winner's Circle at 7:30am and then carpool to Dan's house.  Depart from Dan's house at 8:00am.  Anyone who may be interested in shorter run please contact Dave and Dan for more information (this can easily be set up).
