Saturday May 26th Run

Postby Stephanie » Wed May 23, 2018 8:10 am

Good morning all,

A few of us are planning to head to Rigaud this Saturday to get a trail run in before our Sutton race on the 2nd of June.

We plan to start running at 9am instead of the usual 8am.

Shelia or Brad - could you give us the link to the starting point?!

Maybe we can find a better place for breakfast place?

The link will take you to a map of main trails. Like last time, we will start from parking lot P2. You can find it on this map, on Chemin Bourget. As stated by brad.

As for distance.. anything from 13-20km

I thought the place we ate in was good. You didn't like it Stephanie? It had a buffet with lots of choices.

There was a convoy from the Kirkland Tim Hortons last year, for those of us who live in the civilized world. Any chance we do that again?

So that's a no on the car pooling? We're all going to drive in separate cars out to the edge of the known universe?

Does anyone know what the trails are like?

Crushed gravel like Petit Train du Nord?
Dirt like Ile Bizard?
Gnarly like Sutton, Orford, Pisgah?

Paul - I'm going to be leaving from my house in vaudreuil so I can't do the pick up but there must be others passing through that could carpool.. anyone!?

Judi - there are trails that are similar to Pisgah I would say but nice and wide in many places. It's not as contained as Ile biz but I wouldn't call the main path gnarly either..i guess it depends which route we take.

Here is the latest radar image. Subtract 4 hours to get EDT.

It speaks for itself.

Blue blobs: light rain
Green blobs: moderate rain
Yellow and red blobs: heavy rain

I am heading out to Rigaud, hoping that the heaviest rain will pass.
