Lynn Woods 

Starts: Sunday, November 04, 2012 12:00 AM
Registration:  Pre-registration is optional, but requested (so we know how many maps to print) by Sunday, November 04, 2012 12:00 AM
Start Type: Interval (runners start at 1 minute intervals)
Map: Lynn Woods
Organizer:

Come run some of the great courses from the 2011 A-meet, at Lynn Woods! You can either re-run your own course, or run a different course to challenge a friend. Come early to guarantee a map of the course you want - if we run out of maps, you'll just have to copy the course you want to run onto a map yourself. Contact Alex if you have any questions.

Pre-registration is not required, but is strongly recommended. If you pre-register, we can better guarantee you a sealed, pre-printed map at A-meet printing quality, but we are still limited by the number of available extra maps.

Directions
The event is at the Pennybrook Rd entrance to the park. Take Rt 1 to Walnut St and travel 2.2 miles, then go left on Menlo ave and left on Pennybrook ave. There is a commuter rail stop in Lynn, and the 429 bus travels near the park.

Terrain notes
The courses may look short, but the terrain at Lynn woods is highly technical, leading to generally slower times. These were also courses from a middle-distance meet, with winning times ~45 minutes. This is some of the best course setting and mapping that you will see in this area!

Logistics:
Starts are from 10am - 12pm. Courses close at 3pm. Cost is $6 for adults, and $4 for juniors (<20).

See you there!
