USATF New England has among the most active mountain running schedules in the US. With championships and a season long mountain circuit - now in its 17th year -  there are plenty of events for the avid hill runner.

Mountain running races can be all-uphill, or cover an up-and-down course.  While single loop are most common, there may be multiple loop courses.   The footing in mountain races may be on pavement, trail, or a combination.
Trail running covers a range of events from higher level cross country running to technical courses with hazardous footing.  The trail can be wide and well-worn or single-track and requiring uninterrupted attention, rock-hard (with rocks) or wet and muddy.
In either type of event, don't wear new white shoes !
