Tour D’River Downs


8 2-legged PAX members and 1 4-legged friend set off into the gloom and through the patch fog to log a few miles on this glorious morning. The route was a tour through River Downs – North and South. It went like this:

  • Left out of BWES (phew not towards Twin Team!) and circle around by the high school and out to Robious Road
  • Right onto the sidewalk on the north side of Robious heading West.
  • First Right into River Downs North and follow along until you see the park on the left… oh, crap the park is kind of hidden in the gloom and with some grown up bushes…good luck boys.
  • Bear left at the park, then take a left onto Lennox Forest and head back toward Robious.
  • Cross Robious onto Kings Farm
  • Time to zig and zag a bit — First Right onto Cotesworth; Left onto Pond Chase and Right onto Post Mill.
  • Follow Post Mill up the steep but short hill until it Ts at River Downs South Dr.
  • Left on RDS and back to Robious Road
  • Right onto the sidewalk on the south side of Robious and head up the hill toward Twin Team….just “toward” not “up”.
  • Left at the sidewalk to cross Robious back to BWES; and
  • down to the park entrance and back to the flag to finish out the time and come in right at 5 miles.

Marmaduke appeared from behind BWES without LugNut and then we realized Lug’s car was gone — off to catch a flight.

COT, Numbers, Names and YHC took us out.


  • F3RVA 5-year anniversary workout at Dogpile this Saturday.
  • F3RVA Retreat Saturday night a black site that only Vinny has the address to. Either meet Vinny at the Lowes on 360 at 11:00 a.m. or text him for the address.


Great morning for a run. It was great to have some of the New Market crew out, including Annie our 4-legged friend. The PAX fought over the reins for the steep uphill portion.

Way to work this morning gents. Have a great day and a great week.

No More Gumbo For You!

  1. We were worried about you Lugnut until Marmaduke realized your car wasn’t in the parking lot anymore. Safe travels.

    Good running with the group this morning. Anytime we can avoid the Twin Team hill, it’s a good day.

    Have a great day.
