Route Details
We are getting spooky this Saturday and portions of our route will NOT have turn-by-turn directions.  We will begin our run in a cemetary, run through some familiar roads of Hartville, enter into Quail Hollow park, run some "spooky" paved trails (you won't need trail shoes).  The trail will end and you'll be on Pontius Road, which is around mile 6.  You'll turn RIGHT out of the "haunted" woods and continue running on Pontius road until your goblin feet are tired.  You turn around when your costume starts to itch or when you get caught by the vampires that lurk in Hartville.  YES, I'm telling you to run until you feel like stopping!  We are running for FUN today!  We don't have a required distance.  We will return to our structured turn-by-turn routes next week.
