HOLDERNESS — The Squam Lakes Association (SLA) will host its first ever Squam Ridge Race, a 12.2 mile trail race which traverses a majority of the Squam Range crossing three summits with amazing views of Squam Lake and the surrounding watershed on Sunday, September 22. Registration/number pick up opens at 7 a.m. followed by the race start at 7:45 a.m.
The race has a total of 3,000 feet of elevation gain and is mostly single track on trails. The path up to the top of Mount Percival will be a challenge to runners with its many stone steps and rugged terrain.
Registration before September 1 is $60, after September 1, $65. Registrations the day of add $5. Register online at www.squamlakes.org/squam-ridge-race. All proceeds from the Squam Ridge Race will go directly to supporting over 50 miles of SLA maintained trails around the Squam watershed.
