Applefest Half (Hollis NH) (Read 332 times)

an amazing likeness

    Anyone have any experience with the Applefest half in southern NH?  Looking for any feedback on organization, course, post-race, etc.  Whatever you'd care to share.

    I'm lining up 3 or 4 halfs for the fall and trying to decide on whether to include Applefest.




    mta:  Looks like a heck of a course....


    I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)

      Sorry for the late reply, but I did run the Hollis HM a number of years ago.     It was a very well done race, tough but doable course - but also very pretty - there are a lot of times when you see no buildings, just trees, streams and/or lakes....    Its run 'kind' of like a local yokel race (or was back when i ran it) but was nevery the less very well done - not professionally done (back then) but very well done.


      Best POST race Food I can remember (dont think there was beer but I usually dont drink it anyway so there could have been)....


      You would very much enjoy the race and course.............but do a little hill training before you go to Hollis just so the course doesn't gut you....


      It could be different now from how I remember it as it was probably 10 or 12 years ago when I ran it.......but I'll bet its still pretty much like I ran......they do have cap or runners (cant remember if its 1,000 or 2,000) and it does fill up as its pretty popular....

      Champions are made when no one is watching
