A few miles west of the wide Susquehanna River , and just below the town of Airville , PA , sits the property of Kirk Roycroft . Known as Twilight Farms , this would be the third time Kirk welcomed AHRMA ’ s Mid Atlantic Cross-Country series to his collection of hills and valleys . Already garnering a reputation as one of the tougher courses on the circuit , this year ’ s iteration would prove to be no different . After some tweaking following the inaugural event , the course had been dialed in nicely by year two . This year ’ s course would essentially follow last year ’ s with some minor variations . After some minor course work and final approval by local hotshot , and perennial top-ten finisher , Brett Reichart , the 3.5-mile course was ready for action in 2021 . As stated earlier , it is challenging , but it sure is fun too .
Certainly , a return to its former springtime spot on the schedule would remove the additional challenge presented last year , as the rescheduled event suffered from the heat and humidity of mid-summer .
