Sunday’s low humidity and clear skies was perfect for the third running of the 2014 VERT Sasquatch 2.3 mile Fells trail race! Starting from the field across from the Stone Zoo three waves of a total of 931 runners headed out for the sprint to the finish line!
While the fastest runner completed the course in just 12:37 minutes(!) everyone was happy to have experienced the results of their training and determination to complete the race! Here is a map of the course and see photos from previous Fells races.
The after race dj party was a blast with free food & beer sponsored by Notch Brewing, Slumbrew, Night Shift Brewing & Downeast Cider.
The race benefits Friends of the Fells and the Stoneham Senior Center. Thanks to VERT organizer Eddie O’Connor and so many other race volunteers including Friends of the Fells members, DCR Rangers, Stone Zoo, State Police, City of Stoneham and many others for helping make this event a highlight of the summer!
