SHAWNEE PEAK ULTRA CHALLENGE
October 9th | Bridgton, Maine | 2HR & 6HR
Shawnee Peak Ultra Challenge is unlike any other mountain race found in Maine! With over 1,200ft of elevation gain in just 1 mile, this race will hurt... but what's fun without a little pain? In this race, runners have either 2 or 6 hours to run as many two mile loops from the base of Shawnee Peak and back!
This challenging course means business, as runners will run UP and DOWN a ski slope, over sections of rocks and steep incline/decline. The 2 mile loop has a slightly more gradual decline than the uphill route and will be marked with orange pin flags and white chalk. Aid stations supplied with water and snacks will be at the at the summit and at the base (start/finish line).
The course will be well-marked with orange pin flags, "WRONG WAY" signs, and arrow signs. Three orange pin flags indicate a TURN and arrow signs will be at critical turns.
We'll have snacks, water, and aid with a volunteer at the start / finish line aid station and at the top, with a total of two stations on course.
Top male and females will in each race will receive custom made top finisher awards. All runners will receive a finishers award.
Cash prizes will be given to the overall first male & female runners in the 6 hour event only. Prize pot for cash prizes will be determined on number of actual participants by the following brackets.
