The 2020 Wachusett Mountain Race has been postponed. We are hoping to reschedule for early August, updates will be made here and on our Facebook page as soon as we have solid information for you. Thank you for your patience. We wish you good health and happy running until we all can be together again.

Part of the USATF New England Mountain Running Circuit.

For circuit scoring, you only need to run the 3 mile course to the top of Mount Wachusett. First one to arrive will be crowned “King of the Mountain!”

Continue on with us to the Finish line located at the bottom of the mountain to complete a total race distance of 10K!!

Those interested in circuit scoring who sign up for the 10k, will be timed at the 3 mile mark at the top of the mountain as well as the overall 10K race. The 3 mile time determines the male and female “King of the Mountain” and will also count towards circuit scoring for the USATF-NE Mountain Circuit.

Course has varied over the years. Started as a road ascent. For a while the course contained a lot of trail. Currently a road ascent & descent with a little bit of trail.
