||The Maeve Race is designed to be an obstacle style 5,000 meter cross country race. As such, it is a short course, making it spectator friendly, with several obstacles incorporated as part of the course. It is physically challenging and will take you 2-5 minutes longer than a road race of the same distance. It takes place on our property, in North East, PA. A portion of the course is run over grass in an open area, and another portion through a wooded trail that is cleared to create a running path. There are mud pits to negotiate, a bridge to cross with a rather steep ramp, a log wall to climb over, and a vigorous climb up a hillside with ropes to assist your efforts.
