White Mountain Endurance strives to create an inclusive community where runners of all abilities can play together on the trail. We want the first and last runner at each event to feel welcome. By creating a playful atmosphere on challenging terrain with an fun post race party that stays open after the last person crosses the finish line we dream of building a community in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
We strongly believe in Leave No Trace Ethics and the power of education in reducing the impact and rescues on the trails. By offering Wilderness First Aid courses we hope to reduce the number of rescues Fish and Game has to contend with each year. Being able to self rescue or help another in need is an important part of being a good trail steward.
We definitely love a good race party but we also put 100% of ourselves into creating the safest environment we can for our runners. Behind the scenes we are constantly striving to make each races safer and to continue our education on medical emergencies that can occur during races such as the ones we offer.
Our mission is to showcase the mountains we love and train in while building a community of runners who care about the environment and each other.
