USATF New England has many programs that encourage participation. The road racing Grand Prix awards “Ironrunner” status to those who complete all seven races. The Mountain series grants “Goat” status to everyone who finishes a minimum of six of the eight races. The All-Terrain Runner series standings are based on your “best five” results in the seven events. It would be physically impossible to run every race in each series as the road 20k and the Greylock mountain race were on the same day.
The Grand Prix had 65 runners earn the title “Ironrunner”. The Mountain series had 106 “Goats”. The ATR had 23 complete five or more of the races. Only my CMS teammate David Lapierre managed to sweep all three series. Below I’ve listed those who doubled-up in series, four in the GP/ATR and five in the Mtn/ATR.
