An industrious nine checked the weather and realized the heavy stuff wouldn’t be down for a while.  On for a run. The Route Up the other hilly road to the main entrance. 4s – Take a left and then a right up Boatwright.  At Three Chopt, jog to the right and take Honaker to Patterson. 5s/6s – Take a right up the hill to Three Chopt and hang a right.  5s take a left on St Christopher’s.  6s go to Grove to Granite and hang a left to Patterson. 4s, 5s, and 6s are now on Patterson.  Head west to…

Terrific trot today for a hearty group of Spider Runners. It is the opening of college basketball season, and prior to F3, my ritual would be to try to run around the arena where the Rams were playing. F3 punted that ritual, but I wanted to give it a go this morning, somewhat modified, as we essentially circled El Center de Robins. Busy day for me, so here’s the quick MOLESKIN. Richmond Way to Claiborne Stadium. Left there to Boatright. Boatright to Lakewood to Wood to Baldwin (modified Fudd Runn here). Baldwin all the way up to Hollins. Right on…

16 strong posted and ran the Halloween Eve Morning Edition of Spider Run.  YHC grabbed and revived an old Splinter route which went (or was supposed to go) something like this: 4’s – Around the lake and up University to Ralston.  Right on Ralston and then an immediate left back onto University.  Go to end and venture up the driveway of death.  Continue past the old house and down the trail through the playground.  Right on Roslyn Hills up to top of the hill and reverse route back to the VSF. 5’s – 4 mile course but continue left onto…

14 runners descended upon Tyler Haynes Commons before 0530 looking for a few miles and here is what they got: 4-milers – exit campus via Richmond Way, Westhampton Way and UR Drive (i.e., not the Bat Cave), cross River Road through the shopping center and across the bridge.  run the cloverleaf and retrace back to the Flag. 5-milers – cross the lake to the trail, exit onto College Road and across to University.  Up to Westham and take a left.  Cross River onto Country Squire Lane down to S. Ridge to Westham Station Rd up to the bridge.  Cross the…

A naughty 19 descended upon Spider Run for a route snapped from TYA’s vast portfolio….(an adjustment was made on account of the entrance blocked by a tree.) Out of parking lot towards Ridgeway to Iris.  Cross on 3 Chopt, left on Grove.  4 miler turn around at Oak and back, 5 milers take a loop around Lexington/Albermarle and back and 6 milers do Lex/Abermarle loop and take a right onto grove and turnaround in the Mary Mumford bus loop.

16 warriors heard the call today to further their personal development goals and improve their innate night vision on a temperate humid and foggy morning. THANG This is how it went, more or less.  The Cardinal route has something for everyone. All, head up snake road: Around the Robins Center and up Boatwright.  Take Honaker to Patterson and take a right followed by an immediate left on Roxbury.  Roxbury to West Franklin and head west. At the intersection of Charles, 5s/6s take a right and take an out and back detour to Crestview Elementary (home of the Cardinals).  All…

With no official Q identified, YHC begrudgingly took the reigns and called “Mount Henrico” to the 16 runners and bikers (Spider Gears anyone?).  Those desiring directions were told to ask a friend. Announcements: CSAUP on 10/20.  Run, bike, walk to TYA for additional details. Double-dip opportunity on Saturday.  See Swiper to join the running team supporting those recovering from addiction.

A lucky 13 rose and shone for some morning miles. The Routes Head west along the lake and cut up to the Robin’s Center parking lot along the baseball field.  Across the parking lot and up the hill past the stadium.  Continue up Boatwright and hang a left on Edgehill just prior to Three Chopt. Pop out at Three Chopt and take a left, running until you hit Patterson.  Hang a right and head east. 4s turns at St. Christophers to the access road to Towana to Campus and down the main entrance to the shovel flag. 5s turn at…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESe0-_YRX7U 12 galloping gazelles, one rover on two wheels, one owl whisperer, and one lanky giraffe gathered in the swamp that was Spider Run this morning.  No one signed up for the Q so YHC enthusiastically called River Run to avoid all the downed trees and power lines.  A few lower body tweaks here and there but no electrocutions.  All in all a successful morning. The Route Across the bridge.  4 milers do the half clover leaf and return.  5 milers to Rockfalls and return.  6 milers a few hundred yards past the Williams dam and return.  A few spartans…

Thirteen gentlemen gathered flags and converged by the lake for a 9/11 themed version of Spider Run.  A few regulars expressed their frustration on the bathroom doors being locked.  Alas, instructions were given and off we went.  Those that had flags carried them for the run. The Route Everyone proceed up by the golf course, right on fairway and proceed up Iris to Three Chopt.  Right on Three Chopt and then left on Grove. 4s – Left on Granite, left on Patterson, left on St Christophers, right on the access road, left onto Campus then back to the start. 5s -…
