Thanks to course prep volunteers

Some may wonder how much effort is required to create the Hampshire 100 course that travels on such a journey. The answer for this year: Approximately 700 hours will be invested in prepping and marking the course before the event. The volunteers that put in this enormous effort can never be adequately thanked for their service. The best way to put a smile on their faces is to come out and enjoy your ride or run.

Back to Back 100 Mile/100K Finishes — With a Twist

Matthew Dewitt rode to a solid finish at the Hampshire 100 on August 18th. An admirable accomplishment of strength, endurance, and fortitude by any standard.

However, Matt took it further, as he had just come off from a finish at the legendary Leadville 100 the weekend before the Hampshire 100. Now we're looking at the truly rare accomplishment zone — one occupied generally by top pro riders.

Here's the twist: Matt is not a pro, but he does ride a custom made bike, with features like no other. He is a middle of the pack type rider, but one on an extremely special mission. Matt served our country in the Iraq war, and suffered significant injuries, including the loss of two hands. He now rides on the Ride2Recovery Team, with his custom bike designed and built by top engineers supporting the Ride2Recovery mission. It is well worth a visit to the Ride2Recovery website. The Hampshire 100 race director asks that you follow your heart to the donation page, in recognition of Matt's back to back 100 mile/kilometer finishes.

The Good, the Ugly, and the Bad

The Good — Participant comments are being submitted, and most are raves about the event experience this past weekend. Even the gentle constructive criticism is good, as it is what makes the event better each and every year. Please keep the feedback coming.

The Ugly — There seems to have been a significant increase in litter on course this year. Littering is not only against our rules of racing, but it is also illegal in most jurisdictions, as well as being just plain rude and irresponsible. We are experiencing negative fallout from this for the first time ever. Gel wrappers, used bike parts, and empty water bottles have no reason to be left on course. While we are confident that most participants used utmost care in adhering to this policy, it only takes a few to make it appear that we collectively do not care about the properties we cross.

The Bad — Volunteers who are clearing the trails post-event of any evidence of passage have experienced a higher level of extra work to clean the trails. Landowners are sometimes beating us to the trash, and that is not a good thing. One immediate result will be that there will no longer be a water bottle station on course. It was implemented on a trial basis 2 years ago. Regrettably, the trial has ended in failure.

Thank You to All!

Wow — great participants, volunteers, sponsors, landowners, and weather all came together this past weekend for a tremendously spirited and fun weekend. Thank you to all.
