City Councilman Steve Schewel is inviting Durham residents to run the American Tobacco Trail with him.
"Let's take the trail back by running it together," he said, in a notice published through the Partners Against Crime email lists.
Schewel said he plans to run five miles on the ATT for four Tuesdays in a row, starting Aug. 28. He's starting at the trailhead at Blackwell Street and Lakewood Avenue, going 2.5 miles south, turning around and coming back.
That section includes the area where several runners have been attacked this summer.
Schewel invites anyone who'd like to go along – running or walking, as far as one likes – to meet him at the trailhead:
Aug. 28, 6:30 p.m.
Sept. 4, 5 p.m.
Sept. 11, 6:30 p.m
Sept. 18, 6 p.m.
