Captain Lawrence Run and Ride
Sunday, May 16, 2021
Join us for this 17 mile run and 34 mile ride (there and back :)) to the Captain Lawrence Brewery in Elmsford. This is a supported run and a team favorite. And there is beer at the end! What more can I say?
There will be staggered starts for Runner and Cyclists depending on pace and start locations. The route will follow the Putnam Trail to the South County Trail up to Elmsford. The route from the trail to the brewery will be marked with chalk and streamers. Arrival time at the Brewery is 12 noon so please plan accordingly. We have a 12 noon to 2 pm spot at the brewery. Please visit the Captain Lawrence website for information about Covid protocols as well as beer and food menus. Cars will be available for rides back to the Tortoise and Hare statue on Broadway. Stay tuned for more information and signing up.
Organizers: Rick Bloomer and Jean Marie Andrews
