The Squam Lakes Association is excited to announce the 7th Annual Squam Ridge Race, a 12 and 4 mile rugged trail race and family hike that traverses part of the Squam Range with amazing views of Squam Lake and the surrounding watershed. Scheduled for Sunday, September 29th, this event is a fundraiser to benefit the upkeep and maintenance of the SLA's 50 plus miles of trail network throughout the Squam Range, enjoyed by over 100,000 people each year. This event is family-friendly, and has fun activities for all ages. People from all over New England enjoy participating in the race and hike, and cheering on the athletes.

The SLA invites sponsorships at various levels for this event. The Squam Ridge Race is an excellent opportunity for you to market your business; we offer a great return on investment with far-reaching and impactful marketing opportunities. This event grows each year and attracts hundreds of racers, hikers, and fans to the area. Our promotions via social media, press releases, and visuals at our headquarters reach tens of thousands of people, and recognition in our newsletter will put your business in front of SLA’s members (over 1,500 households). Most importantly, you get to be part of one of the most unique fall events in the Squam Lakes area all while supporting a great cause!

Squam Ridge Race sponsors help to support our trail management and the important mission-focused work of the Squam Lakes Association of conservation, education, watershed wellness, and low-impact access to the most beautiful lakes and trails in New Hampshire.
