Yodelay, Yodelay, YodelayHeeHoo!!!






That's right my yodeling friends...take note- This year something a little different in the way of endurance racing and fall festivals is coming to Hunterdon County and it's sure to be Awesome!  The "O'er Hill & Far Away" Race and Harvest Festival will be held on October 8th, 2011.  The festivities will be kicking off Friday evening (10/7) with the O'er Hill & Far Away Event Expo held at BaseCamp 31 (1250 Rt 31, Lebanon, NJ 08833) where legendary track coach Frank Gagliano will hold a coaches clinic along with other elite coaches, professional athletes and health care professionals specializing in endurance sports.  It's sure to be a wealth of invaluable information for coaches, parents and athletes young and old.  
Event day will consist of three (3) races and is sure to hold a little something for everyone:                                                                                                         1) Spectator Dash & Fun Run...It is "O'er Hill & Far Away" after all so if you want to catch the "Elite" or Mortal's race this is your ticket for front row seats. 
2) Elite 8K- European style Cross Country course consisting of a 2K loop to be completed 4 times.  It will be sure to have all the fixings complete with a few ups, a few downs, unmatched beauty and a few hay bale obstacles to keep it interesting.

3) Mortals Race- We can't all be "elite fast" but we can still run the same course as those vying for a spot on the 2012 Olympic Team.  The Mortals Race will cover 3 full laps of the elite course along with a mystery distance section which will land them back at BaseCamp 31 where the Harvest Festival will be kicking off.
4) The Harvest Festival will be true to form with it's Oktoberfest Bier Garden, family friendly games/activities, vendors and food.  You'll be able to kick back, relax and share your stories and experiences from a day that's sure to be memorable.
