Mount Greylock Road Race - Series race 4

Before I talk about the race, I just want to point out some of the reasons I’m staging this series. It’s about providing a venue for folks that like this kind of running, meeting others with the same interests, and having FUN is also a big part of it J Another reason is to help raise funds to support our US Mountain Running Team members. Even if you don’t do any of the races, you can still contribute and will be recognized in the final results as supporters. If you do one or more races you’ll be listed. If you do 4 or more, the best 4 scores will be totaled to determine placement. There won’t be any great prizes, possibly none at all.  I hope,however, you will get a warm fuzzy feeling just knowing you’ve helped our U.S. athletes represent us when they put it on the line @ World’s. To be listed/scored, just  donate $10 (or more if you wish) to the American Trail Running Association…

Laurel Shortell is the only one to complete the first 4 races and continues to lead. Congrat’s Laurel, you are truly an inspiration! Just checkout the smile on Laurel’s face…do you think she is having having FUN???
The last race for this year is the Whiteface Mountain Uphill Race on Saturday, Sept 14th. For info.

Next year will be the Ascutney Mountain Run, and the Northeast Delta Dental Mount Washington Road Race, which will count if you get in. Washington will also serve as the final race of the Series.

Prospect Mountain and Wachusett might be added for next year (?), will update later if that works out.
