Every acidotic RACING (aR) event benefits a non-profit in part or in total. We’re very proud that this event benefits Ride NoCo. Ride NoCo is dedicated to building and maintaining mountain bike trails in North Conway. Much of the downhill section of our race course uses their trails.

The course will be a two lap up and down format. Most of the course will mirror what was done for the 2017 US Mountain Running Championship Course, with about 2400 feet of elevation gain and descent. The course consists of grass ski slope, cat-track service road and some amazing singletrack.

As with every year since 2004, we’ll make a few adjustments to the course because we change the course every year! Those adjustments will happen after the snow mostly leaves the mountain.

What you see in the video below is pretty much what you will be running on, with a few tweaks.

Frontline Hero Discount

Challenging times bring out the best in some people. Among us are some extraordinary examples of modern day "heros". We are very grateful for the folks who have been on the frontline to provide essential services, despite the incredible risks. As a small gesture of our gratitude we would like to offer a $5 discount to our event for any of the following occupations with the code "FRONTLINEHERO2022"; healthcare, first responders, education, food/grocery, retail, convenience store, automotive care, gas station, towing, highway safety, pharmacy, and sanitation. Additionally, anyone who has volunteered their time to help a non-profit agency is welcome to use the code. Finally, if you are part of a frontline industry not mentioned above, please feel free to use the code. We thank everyone for their selflessness.
