USATF New England has among the most active mountain running schedules in the US. With championships and a season long mountain circuit - now in its 17th year -  there are plenty of events for the avid hill runner.

Mountain running races can be all-uphill, or cover an up-and-down course.  While single loop are most common, there may be multiple loop courses.   The footing in mountain races may be on pavement, trail, or a combination.
Trail running covers a range of events from higher level cross country running to technical courses with hazardous footing.  The trail can be wide and well-worn or single-track and requiring uninterrupted attention, rock-hard (with rocks) or wet and muddy.
In either type of event, don't wear new white shoes!


Note that MUT event dates continues to be fluid and will change in light of public safety recommendations and mandates.   Three mountain series events and the trail race championsihp are already posponed. The Loon Mountain Race is 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. Please check with each of the races for updates on their respective status.
