24 Hours of Great Glen
∨MOAT MOUNTAIN 24 HOGG EVENT MENU ∨
UPDATED June 3, 2020
Hello riders and friends,
With a heavy heart, we have decided to cancel the Moat Mountain 24 Hours of Great Glen presented by Barker Mountain Bikes due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
There are numerous issues that are yet to be resolved by the State of New Hampshire and the Federal Government that would impact the race, including social distancing measures, limitations imposed on large gatherings, interstate travel, and most importantly, the health and safety of everyone involved with the race, including volunteers, staff, and the greater Northern New Hampshire community. There is no way to get around the fact that events in general present a high risk of exposure and are a major vehicle for transmission.
We wish, just as you do, that we could see you here this summer. We were looking forward to bringing back this beloved race, but we would rather come back next year than have a race this year that isn't everything that makes the 24 Hours of Great Glen so special.
You have two options for your registration, below. If you are on a team, it is your TEAM CAPTAIN who makes the decision on your registration:
1) Defer to next year: Race next year on August 7-8, 2021; or
2) Refund: If you know you don't want to race in 2021, we will gladly refund your race entry fee (not including processing fees). If you receive a refund, you will not be guaranteed entry into next year’s race.
Everyone who is registered will receive and email with a link to their decision.
You must make your decision on deferral / refund by June 28th. We will not be able to process refunds after that day. Team captains will receive the refund or credit and will be responsible for working with other team members on refunds or deferring to 2021.
All refund requests will be compiled on June 29th, and processed that week. Depending on bank lag times, anyone requesting the refund will get it in a week or so after that time.
Anyone deferred to next year will receive a "credit" which you will use to enter the 2021 race.
This has been such a challenging decision. Thank you all for your patience.
Sending health, wellness, and the amazing spirit of the mountains
New England's Premier Mountain Bike Race Returns!
Registration for the Moat Mountain 24 Hours of Great Glen is SOLD OUT!
Presented by Barker Mountain Bikes
For two decades, people from across the country traveled to the base of Mt. Washington in Pinkham Notch New Hampshire to participate in the 24 Hours of Great Glen (24HOGG) mountain bike race. The first of its kind in New England, the 24HOGG was based on the famed 24 Hours of Canaan in W. Virginia. On a specially designed course at Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center, the 24HOGG started with a modest 11 teams in 1995, and steadily grew with the last race featuring more than 180 teams and 500 participants.
After a 5-year hiatus, in 2020 we welcome back our mountain bike community that has been imploring Great Glen Trails Outdoor center to revive this beloved family-friendly event. With a theme of “Back to the Land of Oz”, based on the classic Wizard of Oz, 2020 will boast a celebration of mountain bike culture with camping and community, bike expo, friendly contests, costumes, music, and food trucks. Festivities also include the 24 Minutes of Great Glen for the kids which had over 80 participants in 2015.
From expert riders to amateur racers and newbies, the 24HOGG long attracted a broad range of competitors and 2020 will continue that tradition. Riders will spend 24 hours challenging the race course around Great Glen on both packed gravel carriage roads and merciless single track. Some tackle the course with teams of family and friends, some choose to challenge alone.
Join us as we journey back to OZ!
