Kilkenny Ridge Race

White Mountain National Forest

Stark, NH 50 Miler, 25 Miler

This Event Took Place Sat. Sep 16, 2023

Kilkenny Ridge Race presented by adidas Terrex

This course follows the Kilkenny Ridge Trail from south pond to route 2 around 25 miles each way with approximately 7500 ft of gain for each direction. This will not be a marked course as the signage is very good along the ridge trail. We have a link to download the GPS track which you need to download to your phone and/or watch. The trail is very well marked with signs so you will need to pay attention. Please study maps before running the course. We will have maps available at the BIB pickup. For the 25 milers, you will start right at the bottom of route 2 and make your way to south pond. For the 50 mile runners you will running to the Jefferson Inn for the turnaround aid station. We are not allowed to have an aid station at the trail head.

This course is wild and wooly so expect it to feel very remote. This is not an entry level course.
