This is my newest race and I thought I would highlight it here, in this blog, that 10 people read.
The main purpose of this race is for people to run fast! An opportunity for people to run a fast mile and a fast mile that is not all downhill.
If you are familiar with the 5k course in Goddard Memorial State Park, then you will be familiar with the course I am using for The Quahog Mile.
The race will start at the 1 mile mark of the 5k course and will run in reverse from the 1 mile mark to the starting line. That means that the course is FAST. It is basically flat with a fast last 300 meters.
|Look at that finish!|
