This Weekend On The Trails

Only one area race this weekend but it's one worth running if you're up for a challenge.

Sunday, Sept 6 - Wapack Trail Race - New Ipswich, NH -The race is approximately 18 miles. The course is an out-and-back that follows the Wapack Trail between New Ipswich, NH and Ashburnham, MA. There are four major mountains in between: Barrett, New Ipswich, Pratt, and Watatic, from north to south. Total climb is about 4,200 feet. On a clear day, you can see for miles, including stunning views of Mt. Monadnock to the northwest, if you have the presence of mind. This is a very tough trail race. Don’t attempt it unless you are in excellent shape. The Wapack is generally well marked by yellow triangles that you will need to follow using your own powers of observation.
