KIDS! Trail Race

Saturday, Aug 31 @ 11:30 am. Kids trail races in New England
Race Start Moved to STATESIDE LODGE

Voted one of the top 4 kids trail races in the US (Trail Runner Mag)

Devised by parents who both run & direct races all over the country, we saw dozens of kids races that were either
1) afterthoughts & were poorly organized
2) unfair for the younger kids who were competitive, but simply had shorter legs.  

So, there had to be a way to fix this.  And we believe we have the answer.


  1. Kids register (well the parents register them) online or at the event.  Online registration is recommended.  If the weather is good, we get A LOT of race weekend registrations and cannot guarantee we will have a shirt…(Shirts are sold separately but limited to supplies on hand on race weekend.)
  2. Pick up your bib and pre race schwag.
  3. Go to the real start line….Kids get the same professional start line as parents do.
  4. We take an epic picture as seen on the right.
  5.  Kids will run a course and stop at a sticker station.  When they get to as many sticker stations as their age, they turn around. In other words a 5 year old goes to 5 stations then turns around.  The oldest kid that can participate is 11.  The longest a kid will run is 2.62 miles.  So the 5 year old may run a mile while the 11 year old runs the 2.62.  Thus making it a pretty fair race.  We have had a 4,5,7,8 & 10 year old win in the past.   All the kids get a medal and plenty of bling, including but not limited to, a backpack.
