White Mountain Running Company LLC
A very fun trail "marathon" and half marathon at Bear Brook State Park in New Hampshire! The marathon is always more than a marathon and exact mileage is never shared, it can be anywhere from 27 miles to 30 miles. Be prepared and let us know what you got at the end of the race!
The half marathon is 13 miles and will stay that way. The course is very well marked.
We strive to be as earth friendly as possible. We do not have cups at the aid stations, we have re-usable water jugs and bowls at aid stations, we do not place flyers or give out swag bags full of advertisements. You will receive your bib number, meal coupon and deerfly patch at registration. If you purchased ad-ons such as shirts or cups you will receive those too at registration. We will have a fun finishers award for all finishers as well as prizes for the top three guys and girls in each race. We also will have various raffle prizes and an incredibly fun post race barbeque with Grill Master Robert Liang running the super grill again! Please be prepared for hot weather and bring enough water with you. Some aid stations may take you a while to arrive at and we would prefer to not have any medical emergencies from not carrying water.
This is a TRAIL race, there are rocks, roots, sticks, animals, mud, deerflies, ticks, porcupine, bear, moose, squirrel, chipmunk, turkey, streams, mountain bikers, hikers, horses, horse poop, bobcat, trees, singletrack, double track, dirt roads, the most incredible aid station workers around, wacky race directors, great swag, prizes, finisher awards that are unique, post race barbeque included in entry, raffles, smiling runners, bloody knees and so much more!
If you have never run on trail you are welcome to try but please expect to get your shoes and yourself dirty. There are plenty of things to trip on. Runners attempting to run a marathon in all 50 states be prepared, this is not a road marathon and it is not easy!
You could get hurt, it will be hot out and you will need to be capable of taking care of yourself. Our aid stations will have basic first aid supplies as well as tons of great food and lots of fluids. Please do not swear at volunteers, you will be permanently banned from any future race and immediately disqualified from the race. These people are spending their precious time helping you. They will be battling deerflies, heat and possibly crappy weather while filling packs and feeding you. Without them races do not happen and I expect them to be treated with respect and kindness.
If we want to continue to hold this race we must not have litter on the course at any time. This is not a road race and there is not a sweeper to pick up trash. Respect the wilderness and the park rules. Dogs must be on leashes and there is no alcohol consumption within the park. IF WE CATCH YOU LITTERING YOU WILL BE IMMEDIATELY DISQUALIFIED AND BANNED FROM ANY RACE WE HOLD.

Registration will be on UltraSignup.
