Black Fly in My Eye 10 mile or 3 mile Run and Relay
Saturday, June 13, 2020 - cancelled due to COVID19
10:00 am (mass start)
With a heavy heart we have decided that due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we have made the decision to cancel this year's Black Fly Relay Race.
While each day brings new information about the novel coronavirus, it has become clear that June 13th will be too early to host an event that brings people together from around the country (and even as far away as Hawaii!!).
The health and safety of everyone involved in this event, which includes not only runners, volunteers, and staff, but local community members as well, is at the forefront of our decision making process.
We have made the decision not to postpone this event until fall, because not only are there no black flies in the fall (maybe a good thing?), there will be plenty of other running events to join, and we do not need to compete with these other pre-existing events.
You have two options for your registration this year:
1) defer your race registraiton to next year, June 12th, 2021 (might as well plan early!); or
2) recieve a refund for the registration, minus the administrative fees
Please email Lisa McCoy with any questions or concerns.
Immerse yourself in extraordinary views of the Great Gulf Wilderness at the base of Mount Washington while you make your way through the beautiful trails at the Glen in a race that's 100% New Hampshire.
10 mile (15k) course: Tackle single track, muddy bogs, carriage roads, and a river crossing in this course made up of three loops run in sequential order. Challenge yourself to run it as an individual, or run with a team of three (each to run one loop)! 10am mass start.
Loop 1: the North Loop is winding and rolling carriage roads with some forest single track
Loop 2: the Aqueduct Loop is the most rugged of the loops. This loop has a rocky trail surface with stream crossings and boggy sections, a real test for your water proof running shoes!
Loop 3: the West Loop consists of carriage roads, single track and a river crossing.
3 mile (5k) course: Run the first loop of the longer course to experience the ups and downs, twists and turns and single track in a bite-sized distance! For trail running novices and experienced runners alike. 10am mass start.
REGISTRATION for 2021 will open on May 1st!
5k - $25 (race day reg $35)
15k - $35 (race day reg $45)
