Our very own member, CAPTAIN_MORGAN, and his teammates recently competed in the 203 mile Reach the Beach Relay Race. Their team, The Infrequent Runners Club, finished with an outstanding time of 31:45:52. That’s a 9:15 mile folks!
A field of approximately 4200 amateur athletes competed in The Ninth Annual Reach the Beach Relay on September 14 & 15. At 203 miles, the running adventure relay is one of the nation’s longest distance race of its kind. A portion of profits from the race will benefit the New Hampshire State Parks and community organizations along the race route.
The race course is comprised of 36 segments or “legs”, covering a variety of terrain and difficulty levels, from fast and flat to steep and winding. From its start at Cannon Mountain in Franconia Notch, the race heads south through Franconia Notch and then east through the White Mountain National Forest along the Kancamagus Highway, known for its spectacular panoramic views of the White Mountains. As the miles race by, the mountain scenery gives way to valleys, lakes and small New England villages in full foliage splendor. The competitors race southward through the night toward the New Hampshire seashore, and run the final ten miles of the course on route 1A alongside the Atlantic, to the finish at Hampton Beach State Park.
