Mont Henricus

Fifteen able bodied gentlemen challenged Sir Isaac Newton’s theories today as they climbed Mount Henrico.  Circle up just down the way from the commons for instructions:

5 ‘ish mile route:
– out campus by the baseball field to left on College
– Right on Lakewood
– Right on Wood
– Left on Baldwin
– Quick right on Westham then continue left on Baldwin
– Left on Rock Creek
– Quick left on Forest then right on University
– Right on Glendale then left on Julian to the top
– Return the same way

4 milers follow the 5 mile route to University.  Then around Arlington circle before reversing course and returning.

6 milers did Arlington circle on the up and back.

COT with one quick exit then YHC took us out, thanking Newton’s discoveries.

Crowd pleaser this morning.  No complaints at all from the PAX for an oldie but goodie route.  The 5 mile route is a little heavy but wouldn’t want to short change those 5 milers from seeing the peak.  6 milers should be pretty spot on, although YHC had to double back for the six.

Soup was thick this morning.  Great work by all!

Splinter out



  1. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    Great run guys – Mount Henrico is always a butt kicker !
    Kubota – hope you made it back on that tire dude..
    See y’all in the gloom..

  2. First Mt. Henrico run. Tough, even though the four mile route make it to the summit. Great morning to run. Many thanks to Labrat for the use of his air compressor. I made it to the AO on a semi flat tire, but wasn’t going to make it back home. How did Saab miss a Spider Run??

  3. Big Tennessee on

    Great run. Always a pleasant surprise to get back to get back and realize we covered a little extra mileage. Swirly had another gear today!

  4. Saab is in the South Cack region…and I am sure he got in his miles.

    Glad to hear you made it home and points beyond!
