Has anyone done this event in years past? I haven't raced before, but am looking at entering it as my first race. I've been told I would be stronger in a road race because I'm a good climber. Has anyone done this race? What were your thoughts on the course, how it was run, etc.Would you recomend it as a good first race? I like in northeast CT, so if there are any other events in Southern New England which would be a better first race, let me know. Thanks!
