Creemore Vertical Challenge 2016 Race Report
The 10th Creemore Vertical Challenge is now in the books and based on dialogue with the runners I would guess that most enjoyed the race. Is the course tougher? Yes. Regulars at the race described in detail how the new hill, the “Pitch” was a rude awakening, coming within the first 5K of the course. Oh, by the way, it starts with a P, not a B…
