If You Run Into the House, You’ve Gone Too Far


A double dozen came out on a beautiful morning at Ms. Mary Munford’s Elementary School for a Friday the 13th edition of RAMM.

After a few were lost last week on the Windsor Farms route, we wanted to try it again, with a bit more specific directions.

YHC did realize something during the jaunt that most likely is happening on this particular run. Three or four years ago we would run Hillcrest with regularity…it even became (and still is?) a Wednesday afternoon Q. Of course, we’ve had a plethora of guys join us since those runs, and they may (MAY!) not be as familiar with Hillcrest as others. After all, it is dark and there are a decent amount of offshoots around that hill.

From what it seems, everyone got back in good shape today and no one, to my knowledge got lost. It’s not the easiest of runs…Hillcrest at the top is a bear…but hopefully the PAX is figuring this one out.

Head east on Wilmetta which more or less turns into Kingscrest. Up the hill on Kingscrest until it dead ends at Malvern.

Right (south) on Malvern. Malvern crosses Cary and heads into Windsor Farms. You veer left on Canterbury which takes you around the backside of the neighborhood.

If you take the left the first time you see Dover, you’ll end up on the Powhite Parkway. Don’t take the first left on Dover. Continue to go around past Agecroft Hall and Gardens and then you come upon Dover again.

Take that left. That shoots you out to Locke Lane. You hop across an overgrown median and end up on Pocahontas. Take that until it ends on Hillcrest.

Take a right (North) on Hillcrest and start up the namesake of the street.

4s…exit Hillcrest (on Hillcrest, ironically) and cross Cary. Head west for about 15 paces to Oak. Go North on Oak, across Grove to Patterson. East on Patterson, south on WestMoreland, east on Grove, back to the flag.

5s…take another loop around Hillcrest, then exit on Hillcrest and follow the path of the 4s.

6s….take the same 2nd loop on Hillcrest but keep going back down the hill…go straight on Charmain, which ends up being WestMoreland. Hairpin turn at the end of WestMoreland (at Cary) back south on Locke. Take a RIGHT on Dover, then left on Berkshire to Cary. West on Cary and Circle MM back to the flag.

Everyone have a good weekend.
