I'll see you there!

For sure!

Have you run on the maps before?

I haven't checked which maps they're using exactly, but I've run in that area quite a few times.

Get ready for boulders, cows, and stone walls!

Jealous! Have fun!

Should have a good group there. Dave Hunter and Janet Findlay coming as well.

Are the cows mapped?

And, more importantly I would think, can the stone walls be crossed by those of us of a very advanced age? (The barbed wire fences in Portugal last year were certainly a challenge.)

And, if you can't get across the stone walls, does it matter how the cows are mapped?

The time I ran POM even those of us of somewhat less advanced age were finding the stone walls with barbed wire fences a challenge.

The stone walls are not the New England variety of linear boulder fields. They still work to control the movement of livestock. But the course setters are pretty smart. I'm confident they'll make everything doable for each category. They don't seem to have the same mercy for the elite courses unfortunately.

I thought the point of elite courses was to physically thrash the athletes as much as possible.
