In 2008, RunningRaw.com founder, Tim Van Orden, documented his journey through the 6 races in the USATF-New England Mountain Running Circuit.  He talked about his race strategy, his diet and lots of funny commentary as well.  In these two videos, he gives you a glimpse of the Loon Mountain Race course and the race itself (with a liberal sprinkling of Yankee dry humor mixed in).  US Mountain Running Team members Eric Blake, Kevin Tilton, Dave Dunham and Eric Morse are all in the race.

Note for 2012 Loon entrants, the course in 2008 had an extra half mile in it.  This year the race finishes at the top of Upper Walking Boss. The 2012 edition of the race will be the qualifier for the women’s US Mountain Running Team.
