From 1995-2015, 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 and steadily grew with the 2015 race featuring more than 180 teams and 500 participants.
After a five-year hiatus (plus another year due to COVID), Moat Moat Mountain Smokehouse and Brewery became the title sponsor and enabled race organizers to bring this beloved race back to the Glen in 2021 with a “Return to Oz.” The race was sold out with approximately 500 registered riders willing to challenge themselves as either a solo competitor or a team of two, four, or five on the 8.8 mile course throughout the Great Glen Trails network of carriage roads and challenging singletrack.
This year, we race again with the support of Moat Mountain and Barker Mountain Bikes with a theme of “Always Believe”, a nod to all of us who decide to never grow up.
Thank you for helping us make this event memorable for all! We ask that volunteers commit to a minimum of (4) hours. Volunteers receive a commemorative t-shirt and two trail passes for Great Glen good for summer or winter.
