BETHEL — As a runner at Telstar High School, Josef Holt-Andrews has about as much practice running in elevation as any Maine cross country runner.
One of the jewels of the western mountains, Bethel sits 679 feet above sea level, and it is in its hills and clean air where Holt-Andrews trains to become arguably the top cross country runner in the state.
Like any runner, the junior harrier strives to elevate his game with every workout and every race. So when he had the opportunity to attend a high altitude running camp at Western State University in Gunnison, Colo. last summer, it was a chance to run at another level.
