Belle View Mt Vernon Trail

*I'm planning on parking my car in Old Town near Founders Park around 7:50
and hitching a ride to meet ya'll at Bread and Water to run.
Our group run and Parkway Classic both start at 8am so the
finishers should be rolling in around 9:20-10am.
I plan on running north for a few miles but stopping at Founders Park
(it's 3 miles back to B&W for your planning purposes.)
Let me know who wants to cheer on the finishers and hang out a bit.
With my car in Old Town I can take a few back to B&W
to get your car if this plans works out.
