Have you registered yet for the Mt Tom Road to the Pogue? Time is running out, the race is Saturday May 8th 2010. We have heard it is filling up quickly, but there are slots still available.
This is one of our newer races to the area. Lots of fun, beautiful but challenging with a 445 feet in elevation gain over 6.2 miles along well maintained carriage roads of gravel and dirt. The last 1.8 miles to the finish are all downhill. Now, I didn’t make this up….I am quoting the Road to the Pogue website. (www.roadtothepogue.com)
Come on, go to the website and register. Then call us to book your room for the week-end. Come in Friday night, have a relaxing evening in Woodstock at the Canterbury House, then settle in for a great night sleep, enjoy my wonderful runners breakfast and head off for a fun event. Then after the Race spend the rest of the day exploring Woodstock. (Of course, your room will be freshened and ready for that afternoon nap. )
We can’t wait to see you, give us a call or book online on our website.
P.S. In case you are wondering what’s a “Pogue”? It is a man-made 14 acre pond tucked into the hills on Mount Tom here in Woodstock. The beautiful carriage trail encircles the Pogue, right in the middle of Vermonts’ only national park, Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park. Just beautiful!
