This event is limited to 200 participants.
The Squam Ridge Race is a 12.2 mile race traverses a majority of the Squam Range crossing three summits with amazing views of Squam Lake and the surrounding watershed with about 3000 feet of elevation gain. The race is mostly single track with 1.8 miles of pavement, 0.5 miles of dirt road, 1.3 miles of double track, and 8.6 miles of single track trail. The path up to the top of Mount Percival is a challenge to runners with its many stone steps and rugged terrain, averaging a 15% grade for 1.8 miles. There is a racer and a hiker division, anyone is welcome to run or just hike the route as a participant of the event. There are three aid stations spaced 2-4 miles apart so racers need to plan accordingly. You can view a map of the course by clicking here.
