RUNNERS - Did you know: winter squash is great for you! They provide cards and energy for recovery and offer a great source of beta carotene, the antioxidant that the body converts into vitamin A. Beta carotene may also help athletic performance by reducing the oxidative stress and damage to muscle. Winter squash is also a good source of potassium, fiber and vitamin C. Pumpkin seeds are filled with magnesium, a mineral that must be replenished during strenuous exercise to support peak performance.
Pumpkins and winter squash are both for sale at the center on race day. And winner might win some. Crown Point is a working organic and permaculture farm with woods, meadows, ponds and wetlands with miles of beautiful hiking trails – a perfect place for a run! The centerpiece of the property is a big, red Century Barn. It is a magnificent 115-acre historic property -- the highest point in Bath and the core of pioneer settler Jason Hammond’s acreage.
