Crotched Mtn Hundred
THE HAMPSHIRE 100 ENDURANCE EVENT LIVES ON!
Touted as one of the premier endurance events in Southern NH, the Crotched Mtn Hundred event winds through three towns in Southern NH's beautiful Monadnock Region. Previously titled the Hampshire 100 event, this will be the 11th year of ultra-endurance events in Southern NH.
Crotched Mountain Ski and Ride is continuing the tradition of the Hampshire 100 race hosted in Greenfield at Oak Park! The race has been a huge success over the last decade and Crotched Mtn is looking to build on that success for the future. The ski area will now host the staging area, on-site camping and event venue at their location in Bennington, NH which has been a part of the race course in the past. In addition, an outdoor BBQ and beer garden are planned for 2017 and the event date will be moved to a Saturday, Aug 19. The new event organizers are excited for this shift in the Hampshire 100 event and look forward to hosting in Aug. Huge kudos to the previous event organizers and as this event has become a premier endurance event in NH.
The Crotched Mtn Hundred will be a complete event weekend, with live music, bonfires, daily BBQ's, a vendor/sponsor village, a skills area supported by local youth mtn biking (NEHSCA) and group-led rides. This will be a complete bike weekend, in the heart of Southern NH. Come celebrate getting outside in nature, whether it be on a bike seat, or just on your feet!

GAMES AND ACTIVITIES
Kids under 12 can be a part of the racing action as well, with a kid's short course race on Saturday. Registration will be hosted in the base lodge lobby from 10:00 am-11:00 am, with the race going off at 11:30 am. The event will be free and will feature a short, kid friendly marked course, up and down the Launch Pad Ski Trail (bunny slope) that is located on the opposite side of the base lodge from the event venue/tent. See venue map for specific location.
The kid's race will be FREE, but all participants will have to register and have mom and dad complete a liability release form. If you'd like to get that done early, you can print, sign and bring the completed copy to registration. Any other questions, reach out via contact info listed below.
NEHSCA SKILLS COURSE-SUPPORT YOUTH MTN BIKING
A skills area with bridges, rollers, teeter totters and other fun obstacles will be built at the start/finish line for riding throughout the event. The skills course is managed, built and supported by NEHSCA, New England High School Cycling Association. Riders interested in checking out the skills area can pay a small fee, directly to the young folks from NEHSCA, at the skills area. All proceeds will directly benefit NEHSCA and youth mtn biking in the region.
365 CYCLES BIKE DEMO
Our friends from 365 cycles will be on-site to showcase their products, sell some gear and to demo some of their sweet mtn bike fleet. Demos will not be available for the actual CM Hundred race, but can be used in the base area and in NEHSCA skills course.
CROTCHED MTN ADAPTIVE RECREATION AND SPORTS-ADAPTIVE EQUIPMENT DEMO
The CMARS crew from the Crotched Mountain Foundation will be on-site race day to showcase their program and to provide demos of their amazing adaptive bike equipment. Stop by, see what they're all about and check out their adaptive equipment.
Like in year's past, this race event will continue the tradition of supporting the Crotched Mountain Foundation and their Crotched Mountain Adaptive Recreation and Sports (CMARS) program. $10 per registered racer for the event will be donated to their great program. With a satellite location right here at the ski area for CMARS winter-time adaptive skiing and riding program, this race event and fundraising project just builds on the already strong bond between entities.
The Crotched Mtn Hundred's new Event Director will be Andy Gendron, the Director of Marketing and Events at Crotched Mtn Ski and Ride. Andy has years of experience working in the Ski Industry, but has also worked on a variety of small and large-scale Mtn Bike event projects. For example, he managed the Eastern States Cup Enduro and Downhill series at Killington Mtn for two Summers, sat on the event committee for the Carrabassett Backcountry Cycle Challenge in Sugarloaf, founded the annual Fat Tire Festival at Sugarloaf and acted as the liason between the CR Nemba chapter and the resort as they built out the trail network to incorporate resort land. He's super excited about getting into the NH bike scene and looks forward to meeting all the great racers, volunteers and event planners.
