As runners across New England woke up on Saturday morning, they were greeted by a dreary and cold rain. They soon packed rain gear and boarded their respective team buses to Franklin Park, in hopes of proving their grit and tenacity on the renowned New England course. Open New Englands is a meet that plays host to teams of all divisions and each year we’re treated to competitive and exciting races. This past Saturday was no different and with the addition of the terrible weather, things only got more interesting in Roxbury.
