This is the final event in the four-event series of the New England Challenge. Each of the four clubs in the New England region hosted a meet designated as a Challenge event, and the CSU race will be at Lynn Woods. The course setters are emphasizing a fast and fun course design, in the most open and yet technical section of forest.

Start window from 10-12 for the traditional courses, with the relay start at 12 noon. We encourage you to stay for both races!

There are three categories for the relay:
1) combined age > 110,
2) combined age < 36,
3) open
Winning team in each category gets home-baked goodies!

There will be a small race arena, so bring a chair and your favorite heckling instrument to watch your relay and support some club spirit! Arena will be about a 5 minute walk from the parking lot; follow the signs.
