Course Info


  • The course starts at the Nipmuck Trail & Rt. 171 junction just up the road opposite the Bigelow Hollow State Park entrance.
  • The course runs 8 miles south on the Nipmuck Trail to Boston Hollow Road in Ashford (the Northernmost point of the Nipmuck Marathon) and returns on the same trail.
  • The terrain is constantly rolling, and although there are no major climbs, there are enough steep technical sections to test your agility and aerobic capacity.
  • The total gain over the 16 miles is approximately 3,000 feet.
  • The footing is usually decent, but there are some steep, technical rocky sections that demand caution.
  • If you are not careful you could easily injure yourself in a variety of unpleasant ways.
  • Expect to get your feet wet in several of the low-lying areas.
  • Snow and ice may be present on the course at this time of year.
  • Water and electrolyte replacement will be provided at three aid stations over the entire course. Youll never be more than 4 miles from an aid station, but a single water bottle carrier is recommended.
  • This is a running event, not a hike. If you cannot run this event in under five hours please do not enter. It is unfair to volunteers and race personnel.
