The 12.2 mile Squam Ridge Race Is a fundraising effort for the trail network around Squam,  There will be two options for 2014 with both  racer and hiker divisions.

  • The 12 mile race -  traverses a majority of the Squam Range crossing three summits with amazing views of Squam Lake and the surrounding watershed and has about 3000 feet of elevation gain.  This race is mostly single track with 1.8 miles of pavement 0.5 miles of dirt road, 1.3 miles of double track, and 8.6 miles of single track trail.   The path up to the top of Mount Percival will be a challenge to runners with its many stone steps and rugged terrain.  This is not a race for the faint of heart.   However, not only the strong need to participate.  There is a racer and a hiker division, anyone is welcome to run or just  hike the route as a participant of the event.    There will be three aid stations spaced 2-4 miles apart so racers will need to plan accordingly.  To view some pictures of the trail and views from the trail:  CLICK HERE for TRAIL PICTURES  Scroll down to bottom of page for route map.
  • The 5 mile Race - climbs to the top of Mount Livermore and back to the start finish area. There will be one aid station at the junction with the Crawford ridgepole trail.  There is a racer and a hiker division so everyone is welcome to hike the route as a participant of the event.

All participants will be entered into the prize drawings to be held at the end of the event, and have access to food and beverages donated by local restaurants and businesses at the start finish area.  Everyone will have a chance to win.  Participants registered before September 5th are guaranteed a technical T-shirt after that its while supplies last.  This is a fundraising event, all proceeds from this event are going back into the trails that the race takes place on and to the rest of our 50 mile trail network.    Medals to top finishers in their division and prizes to top finishers overall.
