I have featured and reported on the Bolton Summer XC Series and, at the risk of over-promoting, I am again highlighting this great race. Today, I ran with, and interviewed, the awesome race director, Dani. You can hear the audio on the Pace Per Mile website.
This is race by runners and for runners. It’s well run, family friendly, challenging, and a great time. What more can a runner want? All the details can be found on their website.
Bolton Summer XC Series, Bolton, CT, Wednesday, June 20 through August 8, 2012 (no race on the 4th of July), 6:30pm – The Bolton Summer XC Series races are held on Wednesday nights at the Bolton Heritage Farm (the Rose Farm) on Bolton Center Road. The Bolton Summer XC Series is a race series dedicated to getting the whole family out to run. The races are fun and extremely affordable and run entirely off road. All profits go to the Bolton High School Track team. There is a 100 meter toddler race at 6pm, a 1 mile kids’ race at 6:10pm, and an adult 2.3 mile race at 6:30pm. The toddler race registration is free, the kids’ race fee is $2, and the adult race fee is $3. There is a maximum family charge per night of $10. These are outstanding races, organized by a great race director. Expect a no-frills approach to running, with great people and a fun course. I love this race and I’ll be running it every week.
