Bradbury Mountain Breaker - Plug

As I sit here on a rainy day, listening to a pilot on my shortwave radio getting instructions on how to repair an on-board toilet (I'm not kidding), I figured this would be a great time for a late plug of a race this Sunday here in Maine.

The Bradbury Mountain Breaker is a nine-mile course consisting of two loops up Bradbury Mountain. I've run the course a few times and while Bradbury is more of a glorified hill than a mountain, it will kick your butt. It consists of steep trails interlaced with non-stop roots and rocks, making it very technical and very challenging. Very beautiful area also, as anyone who has been to the park before knows. It will no doubt be a lot of fun for all who are running in it!

Race is on Sunday at 9am. Cost is only $16. More information can be found here.

I'm not running in it, but will be working the registration/runner check-in and also the finish line. Please say hello if you see me there!

Thanks for the plug Jamie. Registrations are coming in fast and furious this week, so it looks like there should be a good turnout on race day. I hope everyone likes mud!

Shouldn't that pilot be flying the plane instead of fixing the toilet!
