50th Anniversary of the Mount Washington Road Race

On Saturday, June 19, it is the 50th Anniversary of the Mt. Washington Road Race.   This is a 7.6 mile run up the mountain, at an average grade of 12 percent, which Northeast Delta Dental sponsors.  We call this the “Only Hill” and this year it’s the  U.S. Mountain National Championship as well; elite runners across the country will be with us (total number of runners is around 1,000). I am running it this year, and looking forward to the process and challenge!  It may be as challenging as interpreting Health Care Reform legislation, but I am looking forward to it!

      Hi Phil,

      Thank you for connecting with me. I really enjoyed your words of encouragement, esp. above the tree line! It was great to always have a friendly and familiar face around me. I learned a lot this year and will be back. Thanks again for connecting with me during and after the race and looking forward to seeing you next year. Sincerely, Tom R.
