The XTERRA races continue to be popular events for NEO TC members.
In 2010, the inaugural XTERRA Ohio Trail Run series consisted of five races. In 2011, the series consists of cross country trail runs in the Northern Ohio region (7 races) and Southeast Ohio region (3 races).
The XTERRA Chapin Forest 8K was held on Sunday, June 26. This challenging course offers both flat sections and hills with a combination of well-groomed and technical trails on gravel, dirt, and rocks.
Congratulations to Elizabeth Sosan, who finished in 49.03. She was quickly followed by Heidi Finiff in 49.50, and Gail Connor in 59.41. Good job ladies!
The next XTERRA event is the Mohican Trail Race, a 19K (11 miles) race, July 9.
