Prerequisites
Comfortable road running 6 miles

On Monday we're going to do a 6 mile trail run in Middlesex Fells!

This will be a "no-drop" trip meaning we won't run any faster than the slowest person can go. For that to work, we expect all participants to be able to comfortably run 6 miles in non-winter, road conditions.

This will be a good chance to work on your both your layering system and traction while running - there's a chance of rain, the ground might be snowy, and it should be around 40 degrees F. All of those will be fun challenges for us to work through. Fortunately we won't be out for long so we won't get too wet.

We'll probably start the trip around 10am, but we might shift it depending on the weather. We'll probably finish within 2 hours.

After we see who's made it on to the trip, we'll decide if we want to run on more technical trails or stick to the easier ones.
