Fall has arrived and athletes from around the state are drawing toward DeMeritt Hill Farm in Lee, NH for this year’s Bobcat Invitational! Run through the apple orchards on one of the more challenging, but picturesque XC courses in NH. Bring your best race as well as a few bucks for apple picking and meet day may be your favorite day in September!
Returning after a year's absence, the Bobcat has 19 schools from Division 1, 2, and 3 attending. The 19 teams attending are: Division 1’s Dover, Spaulding, Concord, Exeter, Bedford and Winnacunnet; Division 2's Goffstown, Hanover, Kingswood, Milford, Oyster River, Pembroke, Sanborn, Hollis-Brookline and St. Thomas Aquinas; Division 3's Belmont, Campbell, Epping, Hopkinton, and Newmarket.
The course features 2400 meters of double-wide wooded trails and 2600 meters of grass paths circumnavigating one of the most picturesque apple orchards New England has to offer. The course is challenging, with an uphill start and three big climbs. Patience is the name of the game on this course as runners will want to have some reserve for the second climb leading up to the 2-mile mark as well as the climb to the finish, which is the steepest of them all!
