ELEVATION. MUD. ROCKS. PAIN. REWARD.
YEP, IT'S ALL THERE.
IT'S JUST A LITTLE ELEVATION.
That is really why you're here, right? We chose Bethel & Sunday River in order to maximize climbing feet and incredible views. It's a good balance: while your heart is pounding and you are cursing our choice of course, the beauty around you will keep you moving forward. We pulled off a great event in 2020, and we know we can do it again in 2021. Hopefully this time around we can do it without a pandemic, but just in case, know that the event will be designed to keep our staff, volunteers, partners, and you--the runners--safe, while still offering an incredibly challenging course. Here's what we do know: all runners will see logging roads, beautiful views, forests, rough trails, stunning mountain peaks, and the infamous Aftershock. Half marathoners will get an additional 5 mountain peaks with incredible vistas and a few thousand (give or take) feet of elevation, And we have something very special for you marathoners: you get to run the course twice. You're welcome.
True to its backcountry nature, this event offers approximate distances, and may differ year-to-year. This is not your typical 10k or 13.1...or 26.2. Put aside your plans for a PR and gear up for your new yearly challenge.
A huge thanks to our 2020 sponsors!
