Snake is a very steep but somwhat short hill. After that the picnic area and then starting at sea level there is a half mile climb jsut to the base of Cardiac Hill, which then extends about 200 meters of rather steep, faulty footing terrain. Sunken meadow is also plagued by long sand traps in certain parts and at times hard winds due to its seaside location.
Also, when the times are examined, a course record set by Olympian John Gregorek is only in the 15:30's. Of more recent note, Charlie Milleon managed a PR of 16:12 before going off and getting 4th at Footlocker to others running sub 15's on their home courses.
Sunken Meadow - a tough slow course.
+Rep for mentioning this. His son is running at Columbia now. Last year, the younger Johnny ran a 15:51 at Northfield (an extremely tough course in MA). 2nd fastest time ever run there, only 2nd to Alberto Salazar who ran 15:50. Looks like the apple doesn't fall far from the tree

What's WF?

With all variables, caveats, etc. stated, SM is about 5 seconds "slower" than Bowdoin for elite boys on average. Both are tough and excellent courses. You're the real deal if you can break 16 for either course.

I believe Ryan Collins of Mansfield, (now at UVA) has the course record at Northfield running 15:49.

I don't see Alex Saavedra's name listed among the entrant's. I'm very sure he's running. Is there a deadline date for registering?
