The hills of Harvard, whether it is the views from Prospect Hill, Bare Hill and Dean’s Hill or the landscapes of Holy Hill, Oak Hill and Pin Hill, are deeply appreciated by all who experience their scenery and terrain . . . even on the uphill!
It is true what they say in these parts, “good luck finding the flats to run on . . . ” Well, we might have done just that for this race. There’s no “Heartbreak” on this course. We are proud of both the running legacies in town and the protected land here
