7 Sisters Trail Race

May 4; Amherst, Mass.

Don’t let the low-key race scene deceive you. What the race lacks in fanfare, the course makes up for in quad-crumpling terrain. The 12-mile, out-and-back route is rife with loose rocks, mud, steep climbs and seemingly steeper descents. Racers run a portion of the New England Scenic Trail, making their way along a ridgeline series of basalt rock knobs (the seven sisters, plus some) from Mount Holyoke to Mount Hitchcock.
