The full deets:
This year, we will be journeying long and far to the Middlesex Fells, a nice little (2200 acre) park with a few miles (100mi!) of running trails, a whopping 20-minute drive from MIT (and accessible by bike / public transit).
The race will consist of running the 8-mile Skyline Loop (see map here). We will start at Sheepfold Dog Park and run counter-clockwise. This loop is identified by white blazes, and has very technical terrain (lots of rocks/hills/roots).
There will be some water/drinks/snacks provided at Sheepfold where racers and volunteers can hang out with fellow MITOCers, pet dogs, eat snacks, etc. while the other runners are still racing.
Suggested minimum donation of $25 dollars to the bunkhouse fund. Donations can be made here
We'll do our best to organize some carpooling to/from the race -- signups will close the Wednesday before the race (10/12) for time to coordinate ride details.
We could use a few volunteers to hang out, watch the aid station, and take down splits. If you're interested in helping out, but don't want to race, please shoot me (Kathy) an email!
