The first annual New England 200 Miler and 100 Miler will be indeed held on Halloween Weekend.
Myself and assistant Race Director Andy Weinberg have a quality race planned It is the 6th and final race of the year in the Peak Racing Series.
The 200 Milers Start on October 30th and the 100 Milers start on November 1.
We give a a 72 hour time limit for 200 and 36 for 100.
If anyone wants to join us, I will be running the first 30-40 miles of the course this Saturday (8/16).
While typically the mud would be gone this time of year. New England has been experiencing a summer of epic proportions in terms of rain and thunder.
We had a mountain bike race planned for the first weekend and August and we had to move it to the last weekend in August due to MUD. Hopefully by the time October/November rolls around it’ll have simmered a bit.
All of the information is posted on New England Ultras.com including a google earth map of the course.
Anything else please let us know!
