NEW HAMPSHIRE FOOD BANK DONATION:
Registration & Bib Pickup opens at 7:30 AM on Sunday on the first floor of the Octagon Lodge (the building where the Gondola is).
Loon Mountain Waiver - When you pick up your race bib, you will need to sign an additional waiver that is provided by Loon Mountain.
You will be able to ride the Gondola, free of charge, back to the bottom after the race.
Clothing drop- if you have a bag you would like at the top of the mountain, leave it in the pile near the Gondola before 8:30 am. They will then be transported to the top of the Gondola.
The course will feature Hammer Nutrition aid stations - one at about the 1.5 mile mark and one around the 4.0 mile mark. The average temperature in July is 77F so make sure you run with fluids if you think you will need more than two hydration stops.
Spectators & Family members can purchase discounted Gondola tickets for $7 to tide to the top of the mountain. Someone will be selling those at Registration.
Awards and Food will be back in the Octagon Lodge after the race

The course starts at a dirt parking area along the Pemigewasset River and winds its way through the parking area to the service trails heading up Loon Mountain. It follows a combination of dirt trail, service roads, and ski trails to the Summit Lodge at the top of the Gondola. The course works its way over and up North Peak via the infamous Upper Walking Boss black diamond trail and then back over to the top of the Gondola. We will return to the original course finish in 2013. The race averages approximately a 10% grade with some sections of more than 40%! NOTE: Hiking poles are prohibited at this USATF sanctioned event.
In 2013 we will continue our mission to help feed the hungry in our community. One way we're doing this is by collecting non-perishable food items at all of our events. As a 'thank you' for helping us feed the hungry, if you bring a food donation to Loon we'll give you the pre-registration entry fee price ($20) on the day of the event.
