2014nacacwm.jpgAt 11th NACAC Mountain Running Championships 2014 held on 20. July in Ajijic, Mexico, the men’s team gold medal went to Mexico’s A team while the women’s race was won by Team USA.
Same situation in the individual race: NACAC title in the men race for Mexican Mario Alberto Ramiro Allende and NACAC title in the women race for USA Brandy Erholtz.

Without Canada in the mix, it was just two countries vying for NACAC Championship honors.
The Canadian selection race for the championships was held just a few weeks ago and none of the athletes were able to coordinate their schedules to make the trip to Mexico.
When travel plans failed to pan out for the selected athletes, there was little time to recruit replacements.
The race started and finished in the town square with the first and last kilometre on cobblestone streets.
The remainder of the course included dirt single track trails, rocky sections, with steep ascents and descents. The total ascending was 1150 meters, equal to the descent. The high point on the course was over 2400 meters.
A total of 700 runners participated in the event which celebrated its 18th running this year and included the 13.8-kilometer run as well as a shorter distance race of six kilometers.
Sunny skies prevailed throughout the race with temperatures reaching into the mid-seventies.
