Info/Reservations:
 
Details: Popular in the UK, Fell Running is a combination of mountain racing and orienteering that takes racers through off-road terrain with challenging elevation changes. Essentially, there are a number of "checkpoints" spread out over the mountain that competitors have to navigate in specific order. There are no course markings and no specific path to which the checkpoints have to be reached so this race is all about planning the best route and speed. This race will start and finish at the bottom of the mountain, what happens in between is determined by participant. Bretton Woods is excited to again partner with Acidotic Racing to host this unique competition.

Schedule:

8:30am – 9:30am
Race Registration
Meet on the main level of the Bretton Woods Base Lodge to register and check out the competition. Make sure you arrive on-time as the race will start at 10:00am sharp, course briefing at 9:30am.

10:00am
Race Start
Competitors will begin at the bottom of mountain near the Bethlehem Express Quad, take their own planned route to the first checkpoint (CP), and continue to the other five CP's from there. The six checkpoints and the order that they must be reached are as follows: A)Mount Stickney Cabin B)Mt. Rosebrook Summit C)Canopy Tour Building D)Chutters on the Mountain E)Junction of Aggassiz and Avalon Trails F)West Mt. Summit

The start line will also serve as the finish line, so get ready and see who comes running down the hill first!

11:30am – 1:00pm
Awards Ceremony
Join us back on the main level of the Base Lodge to see who really burnt-up the trail! Awards for top 3 finishers in each category.
