The New England Challenge

5 Marathons, 5 States, 5 Days

Monday, May 18, 2015 - Friday, May 22, 2015

Congratulations to all runners and particularly all 55 of you that finished all 5 marathons! We had wonderful weather for all but the last race where we had rain off and on all day. The races will be presented at about the same time of year next year in the same order of states. There will be next year too the possibility of doing an existing Vermont marathon in the same week. But the races will be bigger and better next year.

I would appreciate any of you to contribute comments on marathonguide.com so that we can spread the word.

Message from Race Director (6/12/2014):

This is Chuck Savage, Race Director. I am changing the dates of the New England Challenge to May 18-22. The order of states will be the same (ME, NH, RI, CT, MA) and the times (6 AM) and venues will be the same. This is my thinking, now runners may choose to run a VT race before the NEC (Shires of Vermont on May 17th) or after (Vermont City on May 24th) to get all of New England's states in one trip. In addition some of you may run several races in New Jersey in the week before the NEC. I am also announcing a special price break for those of you who register before July 31st, of $80 per race ($400 for the whole NEC series) with the standard deduction for all members of either the 50 States Club or the Marathon Maniacs Club ($70 per race or $350 for the whole NEC). Make all checks to: Savage Racing, Inc., 3491 SE 28th Court, Ocala, FL 34471.
