Event Description:

For the 6th year in a row, we conclude the New England Trail Run Series with the Lost Valley 5k Relay and this year add the Backyard Beer Fest.

For the race, competitors will be able to choose between a solo event or a team event. Solo racers may choose from 5k, 10k, or 15k course.

Teams may enter as a 3-person 15k team only.

The course itself will be comprised of a single 5k loop on the nordic trails of Lost Valley. Solo 10k and 15k racers will complete multiple loops of the course. Teams will do the same in a relay format with each team member completing one 5k loop.

Following the race, stick around for the 1st annual Backyard Beer Fest, featuring beverages from 7 local breweries. Including unlimited 4oz pours. Also enjoy live music courtesy of the Brad Hutchinson Project.

Interested in entering the cornhole tournament? We'll have that too. Signups day-of. Come celebrate the end of the season with Baxter Brewing Co. and our partners!

How difficult is this event?

While racers of all ability levels are encouraged to participate, this race will favor intermediate and expert runners. Moderate elevation gain and standard trail conditions will pose a challenge for all contestants. As with all trail runs, beware of rocks, roots, and mud throughout the course. Racers looking to walk will enjoy beautiful scenery and easy hiking terrain.

Can I get a refund?
