Squam Ridge Race
A rugged trail running experience
September 22, 2013 - Holderness NH
All proceeds support the trail network that the race takes place on!
The 12.2 mile Squam Ridge Race Is a fundraising effort for the trail network around Squam, it 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. Everyone and anyone is welcome to 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.

Everyone will have a chance to win. Participants registered before September 12 are guaranteed a technical T-shirt after that its while supplies last. 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.
