Great day for a race!

Before the race

What a great morning for a race! Especially when compared to the rain of last year. A field of thirty one runners took off from the site of the former New Braintree Train Station at 10 am sharp. The racers headed up hill along West Road, and took the right onto Unitas. After reaching the top of the ridge, they headed back down towards the Ware River valley. On the other side of the river the last two miles was back along the Mass Central Rail Trail to the beginning.
