Artesani Park 5K

The Artesani Park 5K is a flat road race that takes full advantage of scenic bike paths that border the blue, peaceful Charles River.

It starts and ends at a park with loads of free parking. and the course treats runners to views of the river from both Boston and Cambridge.

Ascutney Mountain Challenge

The Ascutney Mountain Challenge is the final race in the USATFNE Mountain/Trail Circuit, also known as the “Mountain Goat” Series.

At 3.7 miles, it is half as long as Mt. Washington…with the same 12 percent grade that makes Washington so challenging.

Loon Mountain Race

The Loon Mountain Race is the steepest and perhaps the most challenging race in the USATFNE Mountain/Trail Circuit (aka “the Mountain Goat” Series.)

You run four miles up trails to the summit of Loon and then down the far side, where the real challenge begins:

The infamous Upper Walking Boss.

This half-mile climb has an astonishing 40 percent grade!
