Mad Dash Trail Race at Hamburg (PA) Reservoir. I did the “extreme” race, which was a 5 mile loop up past the reservoir to the top of the Blue Mountain ridge and back down (also a 5k and “family” 2.5k). The trail was pretty tame, being either gravel road or well-graded double wide track. Some rockiness and wetness, but nothing to really slow you down. The first 3.5k climbed about 210m at a steady grade, then about 1.5k flattish on the top of the ridge and the last 3k was all downhill back to the start. Pretty hard not to have a negative split with that course layout. Partly cloudy and in the low 60s during the race, so very nice. Won M60+ due to lack of competition and got a giant mug (32 oz!). 15th of about 30 overall. Winner was 33:xx. Lots of food available afterwards.
