Granite State 10 Miler Preview

As we head into the fall and the cooler temperatures settle in, the NH Grand Prix takes a dive into some longer distance road racing. The next race in the series is the Granite State 10 Mile in Concord, NH on October 9th. For those who haven’t ran it before, the course is challenging, but a PR is very doable given conditions are typically good for racing in the fall months and the last few miles of this one are running down the hills you ran up earlier in the race. The Boys and Girls Club of Central NH is the title sponsor this year and they have provided us with a course preview video. Check it out below, study the course, and show up on race day ready to deliver your best performance!

Also, the last time the GS10 was part of the NHGP was in 2013. For those of you who were there, check out this short video from the start of the race:
