An Epic Day to remember – October 27, 2013 @ the Belmont Stock Farm! Three hundred cyclists and runners braved this year’s CircumBurke with grit and gusto. Facing nearly 4000 feet of climbing and gnarly descending on old school singletrack and logging roads, participants fought fearlessly into the wilds of Victory through classic New England weather – a cold blustery wind and periods of drizzle, hail, and snow flurries mixed with moments of sun. If you didn’t like the weather, you only had to climb another 100 feet and it changed !
After a heavy dose of rarely ridden singletrack on Victory Hill and a slog northwards along the Umpire Brook “Gold Trail”, participants were treated to a gentle singletrack cruise back to the Belmont Stock Farm on beautiful Kingdom Trails.. This years field of trail runners and cyclists and proved to be an intrepid bunch, enjoying the suffering and exhilaration of the challenge.
Special thanks to Ford and Nancy Hubbard of the Belmont Stock Farm, the dedicated volunteers, and all our sponsors (below) for making the 2013 CircumBurke the best ever. See you next year.
