A Grand Tree Summer?

Looking to the summer and setting my calendar to include hopefully 6 of the below Grand Tree Trail Races….  This is a series promoted by the WMAC (Western MA athletic club) and it is a great motivation for me to follow a plan for racing and training – They have a trail marathon that is something I would like to do in the future, and to “qualify” you need to run a 50 miler or 6 of these races.  The series has already had 5 races and so I need to get it in gear to get this into my schedule.  Originally I was going to work toward being a “Mountain Goat” again, but the trips to NH are very long and I really would love to stay close to home and experience new races as well.  So here is the list
BOLD – are those I am truly interested in.  The Mountain Goat race benefits with the new sponsor look pretty cool though…. so we shall see.
