Description:
This run starts on Umass campus at Curry Hicks Cage, and quickly moves onto Mass Ave for a short downhill before turning onto Commonwealth Ave. Comm Ave starts out flat before beginning a slow, steady incline that peaks at Conte Polymer Research Center, levels momentarily, and becomes steep as you bypass Totman gym and Sylvan Residential Area. At the top of the hill, just take a right and the topography changes from flat to rolling, continuing all the way to a sharp right onto North Pleasant St, where the route flattens out again. Here you can take advantage of the wide sidewalk to barrel down Frat Row (if you have any steam left- we always saved a little), which curves onto Mass Ave again, bringing you back towards the Cage for a strong finish. Plenty to see with nice variation in topography. An old favorite.
