Wanted to run a route up and over Greylock, and figured I’d give this a go. Started at the Cheshire Community Center lot. Climb went well enough, despite being a bit slower than I’d hoped. I can echo Tim and Greg’s sentiments that the downhill is certainly more technical than I had expected, as well. Kudos to them for setting such competitive times on the route. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make up much time on the downhill, but was happy to squeak out a new fastest time. 

Overall, this was a really fun traverse with lots of different terrain. From fields to ridges to climbs and steep descents, running on the AT certainly doesn’t disappoint.

There’s definitely room for improvement on the time here. I’d love to give it another go - I think that sub 2-hours is very achievable.
