It’s that time of year when we grant the groundhog the power to predict the changing of our seasons. I, Mourning Wood, will lead us on a journey into the forest to find our Augur of Earrach.  We will need lights and shoes prepared for searching through the dirt.  And for those on a more civilized path, please remember that groundhogs prefer to be awoken by those in formal wear so top hats are encouraged to ensure we are not cursed with more winter.

So dawn your top hats, grab some fur on Gobbler’s Knob, and join the search for the Meteorologist Mamota monax.  Will we have an early spring?  Only a shadow can decide…

When: 6:45 PM, Thursday January 30, 2020. Pack away at 7:15!

Where: Woodley Park/Zoo/Adams Morgan – Red Line

Hares: Mourning Wood, Deetz Nutz, Special Head Kid, and several Mystery Hares!

How Far: Runners’ trail is 4.75 miles (3.25/1.5). Walkers’ trail is 2.2 miles.

Miscellaneous Crap: Trail is A to Z. Trail is dog- and rodent-friendly. It’s still winter dress for temperatures around freezing. Layer up, bring your lamp, and bring your mug!  Runners will be split between pavement and woods, wear shoes that can get dirty (water possible).  Walkers will be safe from mud, dirt, and water.
