Justin Cole looks back at the Bretton Woods Fell Race and a season of running in the mountains of New England.
With its beautiful cascades, 5,000-foot peaks, and challenging climbs, the 8.9-mile Franconia Ridge Loop is a fun and challenging run, and a great introduction to running in the White Mountains.
The Cranmore Hill Climb had a great variety of terrain, which made for a challenging, but fun race.
As she came out of the woods at the Cranmore Hill Climb and saw a tall grass wall, Emily Meehan wondered if she’d been duped. Was this race, in fact, more difficult than the Loon Mountain Race she’d managed to survive only a couple of weeks prior?
Emily Meehan had Upper Walking Boss on her mind leading up to the Loon Mountain Race. It turned out that wasn’t even the toughest part of the race.
Justin Cole was familiar with Loon Mountain from skiing. Last weekend he got to approach the mountain from a very different perspective as he took on the challenge of the Loon Mountain Race.
Perhaps I have lost my mind due to the thin mountain air,” writes Emily Meehan, “but after Pack Monadnock I decided to use the rest of the series to experiment with my limits—both what they are and how far I am willing to push them.”
Coming off a better-than-expected performance at Pack Monadnock, Justin Cole was looking forward to a strong race at Mount Wachusett, the third race in the USATF-New England Mountain Running Circuit.
Emily Meehan discusses natural childbirth, pain, and the Pack Monadnock Road Race.
As the Sleepy Hollow Mountain Race approached, Justin Cole was not in what he considers prime mountain running shape, so he was prepared to suffer.
Emily Meehan took on the first race in the USATF-New England Mountain Running Circuit last weekend and survived to tell the tale.
It’s barely spring, but this weekend is one of the biggest trail racing weekends of the year.
Over the past year, we’ve run dozens of races, climbed countless mountains, and traveled just about every trail we could find. But none of those challenges was as tough as choosing the 2014 Far North Mountain Goat.
Calling all mountain goats! Far North is looking for a runner to take on the 2014 USATF-New England Mountain Running Circuit and write about the experience.
In the first 1.4 miles of this weekend’s New England Winter Wild race at Sunday River, participants climbed more than 1,500 feet.
