2020 Mountain Circuit -  CANCELLED

This year's USATF-NE Mountain Circuit has officially been cancelled. Three of the eight races in the series have already canceled. At minimum, two of the remaining five races will either need to cancel or have scaled back races due to COVID-19 related safety restrictions.  After careful consideration we have decided that there will not be enough races left to have a meaningful series that would allow participants from all USATF-NE states to be included. 

Each race in the series may still occur outside of the series - or could be cancelled as well..
Please check with each of the races for updates on their respective status.

USATF-NE MUT Chairperson

USATF New England Mountain Circuit Rules and Scoring
Runners score points based on their time as a percentage of the winner's overall time, making every second count! For example, a winning time of 41:08 gets 100.00 points; a time of 42:21 is worth 97.13, and 1:20:32 gets 51.08 (the winning time being just about 50 percent of that runner's time). Women's scoring is now based on 100.00 points for the first female finisher. A runner's top 6 of 8 races are totaled.
Because the primary goals of the series are to promote the sport of Mountain Running and encourage membership in USATF, runners' scores for all races they participate in will be counted in scoring if they join USATF before the start of the second event in the circuit.
To join or renew your USATF membership, go to
The circuit awards special T-shirts to "Mountain Goats", USATF members who complete six of the eight circuit races.
As a USATF-New England program, circuit scoring eligibility is limited to individuals who are USATF members. Though all races are open to all runners, USATF-NE membership is required to score and win awards in the circuit. If you have additional questions, feel free to email or call the USATF-NE office, (617) 566-7600.
The circuit was founded by Dave Dunham and continues under current USATF-NE Mountain / Trail Running chairman Paul Kirsch. Dave Dunham still does the scoring for the series. Thanks for your interest in Mountain Running!
