Holiday Cookie Run

Join us on Saturday December 15th for the fourth Mountain Junkies holiday cookie run.  What could be more fun than running trails and then eating cookies?

Cookies you say?  

It’s a simple format with one basic rule.  You have to bring homemade cookies to participate.


  • We meet at 8:30a.m. at the Hollins University Dining Hall.
  • At 9:00a.m. we run the Tinker Creek Greenway to Carvins Cove boat docks and back to Hollins (approximately 7 miles total).
    • You don’t have to run the whole way.
    • Regardless of speed, I’d suggest everyone turnaround at 30 minutes and head back.
  • Please contact Gina at to let us know if you plan to attend.  We’d like know how many calories we need to burn that week so we can try all the cookies.

Hollins University Map
On the map, the Dining Hall is #22. The Moody Center and we’ll be meeting at the Rathskeller.

Once back we enjoy cookies, coffee, tea, cocoa, and oh yeah, socializing with other mountain junkies.

So let’s end the year in the company of friends; sweaty, caffeinated and over sugared.

Added New Maps to the Glenwood Horse Trail page

In an effort to increase the usage of backcountry trails I have added a few maps to the Glenwood Horse Trail page.  These maps and runs are based from the Day Creek Day Use area.  This is a fantastic area with some great training routes that hold up to all kinds of weather.  So when the city parks/trails are muddy and use is inadvisable, you now have a place to go that is about the same distance away.  Check it out
