MONTRAIL New Hampshire Mountain Race Report
Yesterday, May 22nd, my son Patrick and I participated in the Montrail - Mountain Hardwear USATF Norfield Mountain Race (long title!). I was going there to represent Montrail - show off their awesome trail shoes, give out swag, mingle. I was excited too to spend time with my son and run with him (until the end when his fast twitch muscles took off right before the finish!).

This race is one of six in the New England Mountain series. Due to some trail construction, the race was shortened to 5.3 miles. Race Directors Dave Dunham and Paul Kirsch really put on a great race - well organized, well marked, lots of awesome energy.

I had the privilege of talking to many participants about Montrail shoes (amazed at how many were wearing road shoes!). All in all it was a wonderful day! If you like hills on a shorter course, this is a challenging series! And don't let the shorter course fool you...its not a walk in the park!
Jill talking about SHOES!
Montrail shoes vs road shoes: you will have a better grip, more traction to be able to handle the grass, rocks, roots....having the stability will give you the confidence to ROCK N ROLL on the ups and downs, lefts and rights, under and overs, etc. throughout the trails. Definetly an all around positive difference!
