Amherst XC Festival

This past Sunday I ran up in Amherst NH at the Amherst XC Festival. This was the 6th official race in the USATF New England Cross Country Grand Prix series. The race was on the groomed equestrian courses up at Freestyle Farm. The trails were all relatively well groomed grass and dirt horse paths that circle a 50+ acre pond and wind up into the woods and back down onto the field where it began. The footing was pretty good but the course is definately slow. I don't think I have ever run on a hillier course than this overall since coming back...The hills weren't long per se, but continuous. The course had essentially no flat stretches until the very end. A very beautiful layout and technical course made this a fun race... I look forward to running here again...
