Based from the mountain communities of Colebrook and Pittsburg,
New Hampshire, the fourth edition of this truly epic adventure is set for Saturday September 12th 2015.
Race the 65 mile Premier course or the 30 mile Sprint course. Cash prizes, staggering mountain passes, and beautiful scenery attract a variety of athletes to the race; some are truly elite endurance athletes racing solo for the full distance, others compete as a relay team of 2, 3, or more racers.
Regardless, it's a mountain adventure you won't soon forget!
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!
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!
The North Country Chamber of Commerce spear-heads local North Country involvement with the event. The event raises awareness of the recreational opportunities in the region and raises money for the great local cause of trails development and infrastructure.
NH State Parks and the North Country public land is pivotal to the success of the event. The Premier course travels through no less than 3 New Hampshire State Parks and uses public land for the majority the route.
