This afternoon we had a nice big crew out for our uphill run test. After a solid warmup for everyone, we got things rolling at the bottom of County Road and everyone raced 2 miles up around County Road, onto Mountain Road, past the Sunbowl and almost back to school. Pretty challenging course! We had five people testing for the first time (all new PRs!) and eight more athletes (Alex, Austin, Brooke, Hamish, Izzy, Koby, Mollie, and Pip) set all-time PRs on the course today. Several others ran very close to their PR. Well done to everyone! More photos HERE.
