All Out Trail Run at Moody Park
August 20, 2016


The Claremont Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce The All Out Trail Run at Moody Park on Saturday, August 20th. The All Out Trail Run is part of the Western New Hampshire Trail Running Series and is 1 of 9 races on the series. The Western NH Trail Running Series is a collective group of trail events that range in distance from 5K to 12.5K. All of the races offer a taste of the amazing natural beauty that exists here in the Upper Valley Region of NH/VT. These races are designed to be fun for everyone, from the beginner trail runner that just wants to veer off the pavement and try something new all the way to the seasoned trail racer.

The All Out Trail Run will begin at 9:00 AM with a Kids' Race starting at 8:30 AM. All runners are welcomed and you do not need to have participated in another race from the series to take part in this great race. The race distance is approximately 5 miles long. Preregistration is $15.00 and race day registration is $20.00. To register for this event please click here.
