This may be the most difficult 5K course in New England, if not the whole of North American. I've run a lot of them everywhere from Maine to Maryland, from Plymouth to Pittsburgh, and lots more...this course is everything you can imagine - a screaming downhill start, a Mt. Everest up grade (both in the first mile!), a gently rolling stretch from M-1 to M-2 then a very deliberate but noticeable down grade followed by a quick, flat 300 yard bit along a nearby lake, then a gradually but ever increasingly upward incline which after the crest has a 50 foot roller coaster quick drop the will leave your stomach back at the top of the hill after which you can see the end at the top of steady incline all the way from Mile 3 to the finish line. You will definitely feel good when you finish...can't say you'll feel much exhilaration before that but, hey, we're runners, right?

Nice route with some noticeable uphill on the 1st mile. The race goes the next Sunday after Memorial weekend. Unlike most races it starts late afternoon which I like very much :)
