A Season to Remember and Honor Chad Denning

Chad Denning was truly an inspiration. We will never forget his kindness, his spirit, and his smile. We hope you will join us to celebrate his life. It was far too short, but it was so full of adventures of every kind.

Welcome to the Western NH Trail Running Series!

Article from Trail Runner Magazine December 2012 - All about Trail Running in the Upper Valley!

The Western NH Trail Running Series is a collective group of trail events that range in distance from 5K to 12.5k. All of the races offer a taste of the amazing natural beauty that exists here in the Upper Valley Region of NH/VT. These races are designed to be fun for everyone, from the beginner trail runner that just wants to veer off the pavement and try something new all the way to the seasoned trail racer.

The series was started as a way to benefit local area Recreation Departments; it has since grown into a very high caliber event series. It is an inspiring opportunity to see such great collaboration among multiple communities. Part of what make the series so special is that each venue has a unique feel, and each event feels like a festival rather than a race.

Trail running is the fastest growing sport in the United States...why? Because we are a tight knit group of folks that just want to have FUN and get lost in the woods together.

Come check out what our series has to offer, and let us help keep you motivated throughout the summer!
