Annual Bretton Woods Fell Race
Bretton Woods is again partnering with Acidotic Racing to host the North American Fell Racing Championship, the 4th Annual Bretton Woods Fell Race: "Outer Bounds." Join us for this exciting fell running race event in the heart of the White Mountains on Saturday, October 3. Fell Running is a combination of mountain racing and orienteering that takes racers through off-road terrain, challenging elevation changes and a series of "checkpoints." All racers begin and finish at the base of the mountain, navigate to all checkpoints in a specific order to complete the race.
The minimum age to compete in this race is 16 years. There are no course markings or specific paths to access "checkpoints." The racer is challenged to determine the best course to reach all "checkpoints" in succession. For a course map and more information about this race please visit Acidotic Racing.
