For most Brooklynites, trail running means taking the subway up to Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx or hitching a ride to Rockefeller State Park in Westchester County. However, there are a number of off-road routes that you can run in our own Prospect Park. It's important to remember that running in the woods alone is not advisable - particularly in the early mornings or evenings. For runners who would like to try a trail route (similar to the one indicated below), join the regular PPTC group run, this Sunday morning, September 4 at 9am. As usual, the group will meet at Grand Army Plaza. Membership in PPTC is not required to join the run.
