Outdoor festival to have trail running, mountain biking
NORTH CONWAY, N.H. (AP) — An outdoor adventure sports festival is being organized in New Hampshire this spring.
The Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce is scheduled to hold the White Mountain Outdoor Fest June 4-7. The event will include athletic competitive and non-competitive events involving trail running, a 5k run and walk, mountain biking, road biking, kayaking, canoeing, and guided hikes.
A 15-mile race is planned along Mount Chocorua. Another event will be a walk and run in North Conway to honor all those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.
A “Gear Village” featuring over 50 outdoor recreation vendors also is planned.
The festival seeks to honor the White Mountains trails and scenery by teaching respect and conservation.
