The New England Challenge
Monday, May 12, 2014 - Friday, May 16, 2014
This is Chuck Savage, race director. I think this year’s races were very successful but next year’s will be better. Entries will be less expensive, refreshments will be better, there will be more porta-potties, more runners, and maybe better weather (it will be a week earlier and probably cooler).The courses will be the same as this year and the order of states will be the same (ME, NH, RI, CT, MA). You can still do all of the states in New England in one week because the Shires of Vermont Marathon will be run on the Sunday (18th) after my series. I have no connection to the Shires of Vermont race (I am going to run it myself).
There will be a limit of 100 Marathoners and 25 Half Marathoners for each race at this time. Unfortunately, since this is such a small race, we are not able to give refunds for anyone that signs up. These races meet all rules of the 50 States but are not certified. All races are 26.2 miles each and start at 6:00am EST. These races are designed by runners for runners. We will list the number of people that have entered only, no names this time.
