Experience New Hampshire’s best trail running festival, the Gunstock TrailFest! This two-day extravaganza of trail races and family fun is coming to Gunstock Mountain Resort in Gilford, NH with 9 different races, ranging from a fun 5k trail run to the gnarly Peak To Peak Challenge. There will be plenty of on-site camping, a great BBQ meal, live music, and of course, 2 complimentary beers!

10K Loop Course:

Runners in each race will complete the same 10km loop, and run multiple loops of the same course. The loop course is an off-road roller coaster on well-maintained XC trails that twist, turn, and roll their way through the forest. The trails are level, wide (12′), and non-technical with no roots or rocks, but very hilly. There is one major climb near the 1km mark and the rolling terrain is unrelenting. The surface of the trails is mainly grass and dirt sprinkled with pine needles, pine cones, twigs, and small stones. Trail running shoes are recommended but not necessary. Whether you’re completing 1, 3, 5, or 8 laps of the course it will be easy to wrap your mind around the distance, and you’ll get to enjoy the comradery of running with lots of different people.

In each of the Sunday races awards are given to the top 3 men and women and the top men and women in the following age groups: under 19, 20-29, 30-39, 41-49, 50-59, 60+. A team prize will also be given to the team with the fastest combined time of the top 4 team members in the 10K, 30K, and 50K races. There are no teams in the 80K race.
