View Full Version : Cactoctin Mountains/Gettysburg Battle field Run

07-10-2009, 04:36 PM
I am enlisting Spyder Ryders to do a Catoctin Mountains/Gettysburg Battlefield run on Saturday, 15 August; Rain date: Sunday, 16 August.

The run will begin with breakfast at the Cozy Restaurant in Thurmont MD. Then proceed up Route 15 to Mount St Mary's University for a blessing of the Spyders at Mother Seton Shrine. From there we will come back to Thurmont and begin the Catoctin Mountains portion ending back in Emmitsburg MD. From there, we will proceed north to Gettysburg and stop for lunch at General Pickett's Buffet before proceeding into the battlefield itself. At that point the run officially and and the battlefield tour will be "free flow" since everyone will have different interests.
