just an FYI, the first 8 miles of the trail will change this year. I did not want to but the State Police are not comfortable with the race crossing the roads. I'll post the new map as soon as I measure it out (should be this week).
I'm good for a loop like AS2-AS3-AS4/6-AS7-AS2 on the MoMa map starting at either AS2 or AS 3, which should be just shy of 14 miles. Can include AS5 in the loop for an extra ~7 miles :)
I know there is water spot at AS3, or there was a year ago, but not sure about getting water near AS2 or elsewhere along the trail - Rick do you know?
The loop you describe is the 25K loop for the race. You just have to add in the little bit from the Start Finish area in both directions. I am going to run them straight up the road from the start past the Shooting Range to AS2.
It will probably be a little long (over 25K) but it is close enough.
Yeah that sounds great. Lets meet near AS2 at 8AM.
Lot A at the NJ Botanical Gardens / Skylands Manor. Directions are the same as going to Start/Finish of MoMa at Shepard Pond except at the last left, when there are 2 large stone eagles directly in front of you go straight, rather than left towards Shepard Pond - the parking lot is directly on your left.
