Mahoosuc Ridge to The River Challenge Trail RaceName: Mahoosuc Ridge to The River Challenge Trail RaceDate: September 14, 2019Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDTWebsite: runreg.comEvent Description:
Welcome to the inaugural Mahoosuc Ridge to The River Challenge! And by "challenge", we mean dirt, rough trails, steep cliffs, mountains...factor in serious elevation and some good old fashioned "blood, sweat and tears". This years' trail running race will reward 10k'ers with farms, paved and logging roads, beautiful views, forests and trails, while an additional 8 mountain peaks, stunning vistas, and the soon-to-be-infamous (and possibly despised) Spruce Cliffs and Aftershock await the half-marathoners. Oh, and then there's the Maine Brew Fest and food trucks at Sunday River...more about that later:)
We'll update with specific course details as we keep exploring. Plan on a moderately difficult 10km course, suitable for newbie racers, hikers, and seasoned runners; and a doozy of an adventure for the half-marathon.
True to it's backcountry nature, this event offers approximate distances, and may differ year-to-year. This is not your typical 10k or 13.1....put aside your plans for a PR and gear up for your new yearly challenge.
This event is hosted by three local non-profits working together to promote trails, healthy lifestyles, conservation and community. Find more information on these organizations by clicking on them: The River Fund, Mahoosuc Land Trust, Mahoosuc Pathways.
