2018 Assault on Mt Hood Race Report

Assault on Mt Hood Race

12/08/2018

Melrose, MA

Weather:31F and Sunny

On one of the coldest days this month, 50 CRC runners took to the golf courses of Melrose to once again claim a bounty of nutcrackers. After the race, many CRCer’s agreed that the ever-changing course was possibly the hilliest it has ever been. Despite the terrain, we managed to snag a total of 14 nutcrackers!

After the afternoon hills and the lighting-speed award ceremony, CRC celebrated the many achievements the 2018 racing series has brought us at the annual holiday party.
