The organizing board determined the sponsorship support wasn't coming together for this year as we had expected, and we're sad to give everyone back a Fall weekend in beautiful northern New Hampshire.

Race Video Introduction

The Multisport Mountain Race in the NH North Country

Summits, trails, and the sparkling clear waters at the headwaters of the Connecticut River . . . this is the North Country Endurance Challenge.

Working in concert across the communities of the North Country of New Hampshire, we developed a race to remember. In one day, athletes will race along the waterways, forests, and mountain tops of the region. Open to solos, or relay teams; there's also a shorter "Sprint" course option. This is a real mountain challenge!

Two Race Courses, Solo or Relay Teams

The Premier Course is 9 legs of running, biking, and paddling through a linear course of summits, trails, and the sparkling clear waters at the source of the Connecticut River.

The Sprint Course is 4 legs of running and biking, including some of the best elements of the Premier Course.

Both courses are open to solo athletes or relay teams of all shapes and sizes; both courses share the same finish line.

Registration is now open!
