FRIDAY EVENING UPDATE. Thanks to Mother Nature and a couple of hours shoveling snow and ice, College Park parkrun is all systems go for March 18th! We couldn't bear to go a week without seeing everybody! So we'll see you all on the trail in the morning. And this week we'll be welcoming guests from our partners at the American Cancer Society.
Good question! We have been out checking on the trail, and it's a mixed bag. Some sections of trail are quite clear already, including our start/finish area at Acredale Park. But the bridges and the shaded section near the golf course (over a third of the parkrun course) are rather icy. Not safe for parkrun. Temperatures should rise on Friday, and we will be back to check on the trail early evening. With snow shovels.
Check back here for updates Friday evening or Saturday morning before you leave. If we have to cancel then how about joining us downtown for a spot of parkrun tourism at Fletcher's Cove parkrun? Their route on the C&O Canal Towpath gets more sun than ours, and is already clear. Same barcode, same friendly vibe, same unbeatable price.
