This course is legendary and now, thanks to Dave Thomas and the efforts of many he has recruited, it is a true gem. Took my high school boys team here this week to show them what real hills are about (the South Jersey courses they run don't have anything like Parachute Hill). They loved it. I'll be running the traditional high school 5k course tomorrow in the Belmont XC HOF Classic. The race doubles as the USATF Midatlantic Masters championship. Can't wait.

The fact that Galen Rupp endorses it is a huge deal! And they've also lengthened it slightly so it's a "real 5k" now.
