Join Special Olympics New Hampshire for the Rail Trail Run & Ride!

Leaves along the Northern Rail Trail may just be changing color as the 2014 Rail Trail Run & Ride to benefit Special Olympics New Hampshire passes through on September 27.

The inaugural event will feature 50K and 100K cycling events and 5K and 10K runs along the hardpack path of the old railroad beds that run through several communities in the state’s Lake Sunapee Region. This event also features fun for the whole family with offerings including a 4.5 mile family cycling ride and running and riding events designed for children ages 10 and under.

Participants, including Special Olympics New Hampshire athletes, are invited to celebrate the conclusion of the races during an outdoor festival at Proctor Academy with food, music, inflatables and more. Families can also visit the Highland Lake Inn ahead of the family ride for a fall apple festival.

Please join SONH in helping to support and inspire the more than 3,160 athletes in the state that benefit from SONH programming by registering to run or ride today!

The mission of SONH is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for people with intellectual disabilities, giving them opportunities to not only develop physical fitness, but to build friendships and gain life skills.

Celebration and Awards will be ongoing throughout the day and all participants and guests are encouraged to enjoy the day and take in the festivities!

Event t-shirts available to every registrant until August 30, 2014.
Race day packet pick up times and locations will be announced closer to event date.
