New Hampshire’s Premier Running Events Signal The Start of Summer at Mount Washington

Pinkham Notch, NH - Two of the Granite State’s premier running races kick off summer at Mount Washington. On Saturday, June 8, a field of 109 runners took the start at Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center for the 10th annual There’s a Black Fly in My Eye 10-Mile Trail Run and Relay. This coming Saturday, June 15, over 1,300 runners from around the world will tackle the legendary Mt. Washington Auto Road for the annual Northeast Delta Dental Mount Washington Road Race.

There’s A Black Fly In My Eye 10-Mile Trail Race & Relay

Runners were blessed with great weather last weekend for New Hampshire’s leading trail running event at Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center, coursing it’s way along the base of Mount Washington on both single-track and carriage roads. The black flies were in attendance as well, adding some extra motivation for the runners. The course consisted of three distinct loops within the Great Glen trail system, all starting and finishing at the base lodge, with the final loop including a crossing of the Peabody River. Racers had the option of tackling the entire 10-mile course solo or as a team of three, or opting for a 3-mile race on the first loop. Congratulations go out to all the runners, as well as a heartfelt “thank you” for making this one of the best trail races in New England.
