A new set of maps has been created for the cross-country courses run at the Belmont Plateau. The courses include 2K, 3K (two versions), 4K, 5K and 8K races. Our local course certifier extaordinaire, Bill Belleville, certified and mapped the courses. Dave Thomas, Mid-Atlantic's LDR cross country coordinator, managed the process.
