When you have run 100’s of races you tend to have a few repeat efforts. I’ve run the Ed Erichson 5 miler in LaGrange 4 times, 2015, 2013 , 2011, and 2003. It was one of the first races I did when i began running again 16 years ago. The Ed Erichson was one of the first races ever put on by the Mid-Hudson Road Runners Club back in 1979, and is named after one of the clubs founding members who died in a car accident in the 1980’s.
Race day consists of a 5 miler and a 10 miler. The 10 miler is basically a two loop version of the 5 miler, but with a nasty little hill at around mile 4 and mile 9. In my 4 years of racing the Ed Erichson I’ve never done the 10 miler, and have decided to take a shot at it this year. I’m not sure what kind of time I’ll be able to run, but I’m in the area this coming weekend and I have to do a long run anyway. I hope you’ll join me at the race. http://www.mhrrc.org/News/View.aspx?Articleid=1040
