USATF Certified 1.01203 mile paved bike path at the North Ponds Park, Webster, NY. Course is fairly flat with one noticible but runable hump around 0.3 mile of each loop. Mind The Ducks has a colorful history that starts with a vivid dream, an urban park, and some very feisty … MORE

    This is getting to be a very popular race, so if you want to sign up, you’d better be ready as soon as the race registration opens. It is run on a 1 mile paved loop around a small pond in North Pond Park in Webster, NY. About the only complaint that I have about the race is that the paved path is fairly narrow which makes it difficult to pass other runners without going off of the path into the grass, which wasn’t a problem because of the smooth surface. There were a lot of small birds such as Canada Geese and a few Mallard Ducks on along the course, along with numerous species of small birds such as warblers. I found several Marathon Maniacs to run with and pass the time by sharing running stories, which made the miles go by faster. In fact, I found that I was losing track of the number of loops that I had done and was surprised when I had done one more than I thought. The course was chipped timed, and there was plenty of swag for finishers of 26.2, 50K, 50 miles, or 100K distances. I received a cute racoon swag bag complete with a tail, a cap, a travel mug, a coffee cup, and a jar of hazelnut butter that the TSA scoundrels confiscated from my during my flight back home. The weather this year was pleasant, but cool, which made for excellent running conditions.
