ABOUT THE 5K/5-MILE SERIES
A fun, no-frills multi-week race series scored in two segments and run from Stellos Stadium along the scenic trails of Mine Falls Park in Nashua, New Hampshire. Choose from 5K & 5-mile distances. Both start at 6:30pm on Monday nights during Summer months. 2018 dates to be announced.
SCORING & AWARDS
Overall winner scores 100 points. All other finishers score on a percentage basis of the winner's time divided by their time.
Age-group awards to top male and female for each of the two series segments in the following age divisions: 14 & Under; 15-18; 19-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60-69; and 70+. Special awards to overall top male and female of the entire series.
The course is run entirely on trails through Mine Falls. The terrain for the 5K is mostly flat, wide & well groomed. The footing is rugged but safe, over rocks, roots and packed dirt. The 5-mile race utilizes some of the lesser-used trails in the park, through winding single-track and rolling riverside paths. The trails are well-marked with chalk arrows and volunteers directing racers at major trail intersections.
