We have teamed up with Eastern Mountain Sports and Mount Washington Observatory to bring you a 5k, 10, and 6 hour trail race at Great Glen.

This is a fun event where 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Mount Washington Observatory’s Seek the Peak fundraising event.

A slightly technical 5k loop at Great Glen on single track and carriage roads.  The course will be set at the end of June and will use the same course as the mountain bike summer series.  Expect about 200 feet of climbing per 5k loop.

The 5k runners will run one loop, the 10k will do two and the 6 hour will run for 6 hours.  Relay teams are encouraged to join!

The following link will show you the 3 mile loop course. (there are different distances listed, you will do the 3 mile loop)  https://greatglentrails.com/summer-mountain-bike-series/

The timing of the event allows for runners to be around for the Seek the Peak adventure expo, and it will give expo guests the ability to see a fun event. The expo is free and will feature food trucks, beer garden, music and outdoor gear vendors.  Your entry will purchase you post race food and the remaining proceeds will go directly to Seek the Peak.

Join us for this fun event and of course costumes are welcome. Visit SEEKTHEPEAK.ORG for the expo event schedu.e and more Information about the Observatory’s Seek the Peak Fundraiser
