Valentine Farm

Bethel, ME to South Ridge Base Lodge – Newry, ME

Registration fees increase on July 4th–SIGN UP NOW!

Welcome to the inaugural Mahoosuc Ridge to The River Challenge! This years’ trail running race will reward 10k’ers with farms, paved and logging roads, beautiful views, forests and trails, while an additional 8 mountain peaks, stunning vistas, and the soon-to-be-infamous (and possibly despised) Spruce Cliffs and Aftershock await the half-marathoners. Oh, and then there’s the Maine Brew Fest and food trucks at Sunday River…more about that later:)

We’ll update with specific course details as soon as the trails are free of mud so we can get out and really explore. Plan on a moderately difficult 10km course, suitable for newbie racers, hikers, and seasoned runners; and a doozy of an adventure for the half-marathon.

True to its backcountry nature, this event offers approximate distances, and may differ year-to-year. This is not your typical 10k or 13.1….put aside your plans for a PR and gear up for your new yearly challenge.


Race start is at Mahoosuc Land Trust’s Valentine Farm at 162 North Road in Bethel. Race finish is at South Ridge at Sunday River. All races start at 10am; untimed hikers/walkers start at 10:05am.
