Hampshire 100 Ultra Trail Run
Sunday, August 17, 2014 - 5:30 AM
The 100 kilometer trail run will travel over much of the same, although not identical, trails that have become so popular for the endurance mountain bike event. The runners will tackle the trails with their own unique direction, twists, loops, and turns, including some extra special trails that will be reserved solely for the running competitors. The trails will wind through the beautiful, varied, and frequently challenging terrain of Southern New Hampshire. The planned course is primarily one single loop. The trail boss is scheming on a few nice changes to make the course better than ever in 2014.
|Public dirt roads||6%|
|Doubletrack/woods road — clean||35%|
|Singletrack/hiking trails or similar||31%|
|Elevational gain, estimated||7000 ft|
A detailed course description will be available once spring trail clean up has been completed.
Please note that the course crosses many private landowner areas, and these areas are NOT open for pre-running. Doing so will jeopardize future editions of the event. We take seriously the privacy rights of our generous landowners, and expect all participants to do likewise. Several public access trails that are available for sampling will be published for consideration prior to event day.
Registration fee includes entry, aid stations with food and fluids, SAG wagon support, post-race meal, complimentary campsite (for Saturday night only - no Friday or Sunday camping allowed at venue) at the start/finish venue (no hookups, but within sight of the start/finish line), participant souvenirs, festivities, and awards to top finishers.
Racers will be responsible for the information in the Runners Participant Guide. The final version of the document will be available at the venue.
If a racer does not wish to take advantage of the complimentary rough camping at the venue, more traditional overnight lodging, for a fee, may be found in the area. Helpful links include the Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce, Visit NH, and Greenfield State Park.
All racers are generally expected to pick up their racer packet on Saturday, August 16th, the day before the race, between the hours of 2 – 9 PM, at the start/finish venue at Oak Park. There may be an opportunity for Sunday morning pick-up for those that cannot get to the venue on Saturday without undue hardship. This is packet pick-up only. No new registrations will be allowed on Sunday morning. Participants must pick up their own packets. Photo ID is required. If you are under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must also be present.
