5K run/1 mile: Run or walk through the quiet country roads in beautiful Chesterfield NH. This course meanders past historic farms to the Pisgah Forest before returning to Chesterfield School. The course is somewhat hilly but can be accomplished by anyone. The one big hill at the halfway point gives truth to the saying, "Its all downhill from here!"
10K Trail Run: The 10k race begins on country roads and enters the Pisgah Forest where you'll enjoy beautiful scenery and be challenged by an intermediate trail run, up and down several hills. Once entering the Pisgah Forest (mile 1.6) the trail is wide and mostly downhill until the turn at mile 3. Shortly after the turn around, the trail narrows and begins a moderate climb toward Horseshoe road. A large, fairly steep hill at mile 4.25 signals that the end of the trail section is near. At mile 4.6 you return to a country road for the final stretch back to Chesterfield School.
Fitness Challenge: After the race we offer a FREE multi-sport fitness challenge featuring everything from a basketball free throw contest to pull-ups, a putting green and a mini obstacle course and climbing wall. Each station offers a different colored bracelet to anyone who attempts that challenge, try and collect them all!
