Southtown Workout Site
Please refer to the Brick Overview & Schedule page for the overview, rules, and schedule information.
Time & Location
The Southtown bricks take place at Chestnut Ridge Park, near the North entrance off Newton Road. We use shelter #21. If/when there is a problem with this location (such as another group booking the shelter, or the closure of the Newton Rd entrance, etc) we will use the Casino parking lot as our alternate location (see map below). If you arrive at the shelter #21 area and don't see anyone, please check the Casino parking lot.
This area is a prime location for the brick workouts because there is ample parking, decent roads to bike on, and very nice running routes within the park. Unlike the Northtown site, there are some pretty significant hills on Southtown biking and running routes.
Types of Bricks, Bike Routes, and Running Routes
The format of the Southtown bricks will be decided on a week-to-week basis, on-site at the start of the workout. The majority of the workouts tend to consist of some combination of two running routes (0.9 miles and 3.9 miles) and a 7.5 mile bike loop. Maps and elevation charts for those 3 routes can be found below.
Timing & Scoring
The Southtown bricks do not utilize a formal time keeping and points-based scoring system. We have held special Southtown time trials in the past which are timed.
Maps & Documents
Over the years we've used variety of routes for events at or near Chestnut Ridge. Some of the old maps and routes are available below for historical purposes and might be used again the future.
