2013 Squam Race Highlights

Squam Ridge Race Highlights

Our first annual Squam Ridge Race was a huge success! Nearly 70 participated in the challenging 12.2 mile trail race, with everyone finishing! The weather turned out to be good- the rain stopped just in time for the start of the race and by late morning the sun was shining. There was lots of food and drink, and live music complements of local musician Mike Rossi. Thanks to the sponsors and volunteers who made the event a success, and to SLA Director of Recreation Brett Durham who lead the effort in planning the event - great job!
