The Return of Pack - Sunday, May 11, 2014
The Pack Monadnock race was cancelled in 2013 due to the inability to acquire permits for Miller State Park. But on on Sunday, May 11, 2014 (Mothers Day), the Pack race will be back. This year, Pack is race #2 in the New Hampshire Grand Prix Series. Other races in this series include (in event-date order): The Nashua Soup Kitchen 5K, Shaker 7 Miler, Bill Luti 5 Miler, Epsom Old Home Days 4 Miler, Convenient MD 10K, and the CHAD Half Marathon
The Pack race starts in Wilton, NH and consists of rolling hills with a general uphill trend. The last mile is up the Miller State Park auto road as the finish line is at the top of Pack Monadnock at the base of the fire tower.
Awards are given to the top 3 overall and the top 3 in each age group. The awards are bottles of maple syrup provided by Hanks Sugar Shack which is located on the course around the 5 mile mark.
