Brian and Andrew will meet you on Sunday, August 26 and Sunday, September 2 for their very popular bike clinics. Meet at the Stockbridge Bowl boat ramp at 9am and be prepared to bike the course. You will bike down to the race start in Great Barrington, but it will be a slow warm-up and it’s mostly downhill. No mountain bikes please.
NOTE: If it is raining on Sunday morning, Brian has proposed the following for the bike clinic:
Here’s what I propose: In the event of rain, the ride portion of the clinic is cancelled, but those wishing to hear the talking part of the bike clinic can meet at the Stockbridge Bowl at 9:00, and I’ll give the talk through that I normally do. I can then drive the course with my 8 passenger mini-van, and anyone who wants to hop in the van can come along with me, or they can simply drive their own cars behind me to get an idea of the route.
Saturday, August 11 and Saturday, September 8. Meet at the Tanglewood Main gate parking lot at 8am and be prepared to run the course.
Berkshire Running Center’s Shiobbean and Kent Lemme will host the JB Run Clinics. The clinics are designed to help you understand the logistics and pacing of the Josh run leg.
