Another Successful Trip to the Assault on Mount Hood

NETT once again made its annual trip to the Assault on Mount Hood XC race in Melrose and again had great results.

NETT won the men's master's race with its "first" masters team of Crazy Dave, Joe C and Andy. But NETT had such a great participation on the men's side we had an "extra" Master's team of Patrick, Ilya and Marshall finished 6th Master's team overall. How about that? Patrick, by the way, ran away with the men's 60-69 age group and got a nice new friend for his hard work.

In the very competitive men's open race, the team of Matt, Martin and Ethan finished 6th team overall.

On the women's side the mother-daughter duo of Kristin and Bridget represented NETT well, as Kristin was third female master.

As always, the Melrose Running Club did a fantastic job with this race. The course was just as hilly as always (they use a different route every year) and the post-race festivities were a lot of fun.

NETT has been supporting this race as far back as 2007 (the infamous Mount Hood Massacre) and we'll keep going back as long as they keep doing such a great job with it!
