Yes, we're definitely training. I will post details today or tomorrow. Please contact me (or indicate in the AP interface) if you are planning or considering coming, as we will be printing maps early next week.

Some considerations:
Sunset is at 4:30 PM, so I've tried to start the schedule early. As we're having two sessions and it's tough to do 12-15 km of productive training in one go, I'm allocating time for lunch. I've rented an Airbnb in Greenwood Lake, New York that's 20 minutes away from Harriman. I'm expecting we will retire either to the house between sessions or to a diner or something for food. It's not unreasonable to stay at the parking area and eat lunch there, though it will be cold.

The temperature is forecast to be 32-45 F for most of the time we will be training, which is very cold. Bring a jacket and a hat to put on when you're done training and bring appropriate clothes for running in these temperatures. We will try to minimize the amount of time people are standing around and waiting.

We will stay at the same parking area for both sessions each day to simplify logistics. In the remote chance that anyone finds the amount of training unsatisfying, I will have a bonus 5 km middle course on Rockhouse that we used last Thanksgiving.

Food: Plan to bring your own lunch, though we may retire to a diner or an AirBnb we are renting because it will be cold.
