Description

Join us for the ninth annual Ghost Train Rail Trail Races! Beginning in 2017, the Trail Animals Running Club (TARC) have assumed responsibility for this event as it is now officially part of the TARC Trail Series (http://trailanimals.com/tarc-trail-series/). The biggest change? THERE WILL BE NO CUPS PROVIDED! Please help us limit the amount of trash generated by bringing a reusable cup for hot and cold beverages/soups.

We have a 15 mile race and a 2-person relay on Sunday, and a 30-100 mile ultra that starts on Saturday and ends on Sunday (choose your ultra distance on race day!). Note that this race is New Hampshire's one and only 100 mile race, and is only one of two ultras in the Granite State! 

We aim to provide a race that welcomes new trail runners into the sport as well as provide a solid race for more experienced runners. DID WE MENTION THAT THERE WILL BE NO CUPS PROVIDED?

All of the proceeds for this race go to the Milford and Brookline Conservation Commissions. The money is used to maintain and improve the trails. Past improvements have included widening the trail and putting a new bridge over the old railroad trestle.

Thanks, and we'll see you out on the trails!

P.S. Please note that this race is guaranteed to be haunted. Are you afraid?
